Avalon Nursing Homes Eastbourne

Avalon Nursing home is one of the oldest in the country and was first opened in 1968. It is located in the Hampden Park area of Eastbourne, close to Hampden Park and St Marys Church and a short walk from Hampden Park shopping centre and train station.

It has two wings, one for 22 residents who have pure nursing needs and a New Wing for 16 patients who have EMI Nursing requirements.

The New Wing was opened in September 2009 and has 16 luxury rooms all with en-suites and most with wet rooms. Four of these rooms were added in August 2012.

Each resident has their own luxury bedroom, many of which have their own en-suites and a large number of which have wet rooms. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own furniture (if they wish) and their own photos and paintings. If theydo not wish to, wewill provide furniture.

Avalon will become the residents home from home and the residents and their families really work closely with the management via regular residents meetings to help us put together regular action plans and come up with ideas of things our residents would like. For example recently the residents in the new wing chose the colours of the carpet and the decoration of the conservatory.

In the summer of 2012, the nursing wing of our facility underwent significant refurbishment with the addition of a large conservatory, 4 new luxury bedrooms and the complete renovation of 11 bedrooms, the laundry room, medication room and the office. Again the residents were involved in the choice of colours used for the bedrooms and the conservatory.

Avalon in Eastbourne has a very experienced staff team, a number of who have been herefor many years. The current matron, Lynn Shingfield, worked under the previous matron and has been with us for 23 years, and Diane Hamper, the Head of Care, has been with us for almost 25 years. We also have two head chefs: Helen Birnie who has worked here for 15 years (and whose mother was with us for 24 years prior to her retirement), and Les Broadbent, who has worked at Avalon for eight years.

Avalon has always had a good reputation as one of the best facilities in Eastbourne and is well regarded by local GPs and the District General Hospital.
