Sussex Healthcare breaks a social barrier by confronting a familiar stigma that is rarely spoken of – let alone embraced. With a dual accreditation from the Health Quality Services (HQS) and the International Organization of Standardization (ISO), this independent company with 25 years of experience has moved mountains. Their contribution to healthcare makes it possible for the elderly and those facing other challenges an opportunity to experience a comfortable, meaningful, and fulfilling life.
There are 20 homes within their network focusing on elderly care and specialized care for those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s. However, what makes Sussex Healthcare rather unique is their specialized care for adults experiencing physical, learning, or neurological challenges. Each home is staffed with highly trained professionals and specialty nurses available around the clock. Sussex Healthcare embraces a ‘person-centered’ principle enabling them to create a unique care plan for each varying situation.
Elderly care prospects can choose respite or residential care in one of the seven homes that accommodate older people. Elders will have access to crafts, music and movement, art therapy, expert led physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and reflexology sessions.
The dementia care homes are specifically structured to aid a level of familiarity for those experiencing memory loss. Special techniques and strategies are set in place to help memory loss patients distinguish present from past. At Sussex Healthcare, creating a memory box has helped with that distinction. 24-hour care is available which can be crucial for those suffering from memory loss.
Neurological care homes accommodate various conditions such as Huntington’s disease, Multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson disease. The neurological staff is thoroughly trained and works closely with specialists and consultants in the community. 24-hour nursing care is available as well as physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, reflexology, and aroma therapy. Spa and hydrotherapy pools are also available. Sussex Healthcare believes that physiotherapy and hydrotherapy are essential tools for socialization and care for neurological conditions.
The Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD) division helps people with physical and learning challenges, enabling them to succeed despite the obstacles they face. With the help of local colleges, Sussex Healthcare has placed the value of education at the center of these facilities. Self-sufficiency is encouraged through activities that mimic real life such as grocery shopping and work experience. Day care, respite care, and 24-hour care is available making care for PMLD flexible and convenient.
Sussex Healthcare is well on its way to becoming an industry leader in healthcare. They have set an industry standard by exploring innovative and inventive ways to progress healthcare.
