New dementia care home and wellbeing centre opens in Goring-by-Sea

PUBLISHED: 12:29 06 January 2015 | UPDATED: 14:59 20 March 2015

As more people develop dementia, with 1 in 3 over 65s set to live with the disease, Guild Care have recognised the growing need for specialist dementia care in Sussex. The charity’s state-of-the-art dementia facilities, Haviland House and the Bradbury Wellbeing Centre, will provide a ‘home from home’ for 60 residents and offer a lifeline to people in the county with dementia, and their carers, 7 days a week.

The new home has been specially designed for dementia care, with themed areas such as a sewing room, beach hut and library that will help residents recall long-lost memories. With a contemporary yet classic décor, each spacious bedroom has its own proper front door. The rooms have been designed with comfort in mind, offering colour-coordinated en-suite bathrooms and luxurious soft furnishings that make people with dementia feel instantly at home. Benefitting from nutritionally balanced, personalised menus, a jam-packed activity programme and friendly, professional staff, Haviland House promises to be a home to remember.

The Bradbury Wellbeing Centre will extend this ethos for dementia care to support the local community and people who can travel to the centre from other parts of the county. Guild Care’s unique person-centred approach cherishes the needs of the individual, ensuring that people with dementia can enjoy the things that make them happy. From live music and crafts, to outings and cinema screenings. They can also be pampered at the on-site hairdressing salon and enjoy beauty treatments or assisted bathing.

The new facilities will also prove to be invaluable to carers, with advice, guidance and specialist respite care that reassures them that their loved one is in safe hands. With a comfortable coffee bar, the Bradbury Wellbeing Centre will offer somewhere for local carers to meet other people who understand what they are going through. There’s even a Sunday lunch service, offering a supported environment for carers and people with dementia to enjoy lunch together as a family.

Haviland House and the Bradbury Wellbeing Centre will be there for people throughout their dementia journey, giving them the confidence to remain independent in their own homes, and offering a place of comfort when the time comes for residential care. These new facilities are the first of their kind and will make it possible for people to truly live well with dementia.
