Founded in 1985, Sussex Healthcare is an independent facility and nursing home that offers health care to people with mental disorders and learning difficulties. Dr. Shafik Sachedina and Shiraz Borghani founded the organization. The center has since grown to 20 residential care homes in the United Kingdom under the able leadership of Shafik Sachedina.
Unlike other care centers. Sussex values their patients’ quality of life by having well-experienced doctors to deal with them. The organization has equipment and technology needed to care for its patients. It also provides quality meals, and customized services 24/7. Shafik Sachedina grew his interest in voluntary work after working with the Jamati Institutions and Aga Khan, and that is when he saw the need to create this center as a way of giving back to the community.
Shafik Sachedina is a qualified dentist having graduated with a degree in dentistry in one of the best medical schools in London. He practiced in his line of the career in England for a long time, then went into the idea of voluntary services for some few years. During his practice, he had the idea of coming up with a healthcare facility to help the needy.
With this idea in mind, he established the Sussex Healthcare along with his counterparts in the health industry. Their primary focus was to offer affordable care and quality services to old aged people, individuals with special needs mentally challenged people and those with brain injuries. They then decided that the facility would be in a place where patients would enjoy the environment as well as receive the needed care. It has become one of the best reliable care centers which have treated many patients.
Besides the healthcare industry, Shafik Sachedina has been involved in many activities concerning the community. He is a member of the Institute of Ismaili Studies which is based in France. He is in charge of planning all the activities that the group takes part in. He is also involved in the Aga Khan Development Network which helps people in the Central Asian Communities lead better lives. People love him because of his commitment and humbleness while serving others.
