The newly named Dennis Cullen Wing has provided specialist Dementia nursing care since 2009 for residents who require Nursing and who may have Dementia, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. Dedicated to providing quality EMI nursing care for its residents. This wing has 16 large bedrooms all with en suites.
The wing also has a large conservatory and lounge living area which provides a relaxing environment in which the residents may spend their time. This communal facility leads out onto the beautiful gardens.
There is always a staff member on duty in this communal area in the day when residents are present to provide assistance.
The staff are all trained in dementia care and many of the senior staff have attended advanced dementia care. The beautiful new wing was designed by Chris Keet of CKA Architectural a well-known architect in Eastbourne and built to the highest of specification by Bishop & Levett. EMI wing boasts a new glass lift that gives easy wheelchair access to the first-floor bedrooms on both sides of the home.
All 16 of our bright and airy bedrooms are en suite bedrooms, most of which also have a wet shower room facility in them. In addition, we have a communal shower room and disability toilet on both floors.
It is very important for our residents that have dementia to be able to bring their own furniture, pictures, paintings and personal items in order to make their bedroom as familiar as possible and their own. This especially aids them when they move into the home so they can see things that they can remember. In addition, all our bedrooms are fitted with a nurse call bell which residents can call if they require assistance.
The Dennis Cullen wing boasts a nice bright and airy conservatory that's leads out onto a paved and grassy garden which is fully secured by 6 foot fencing and a keypad on the side gate. This area also has a large conservatory area which provides a light bright day space for the residents to enjoy the day. The conservatory is fitted with blinds which can be adjusted if it gets too bright.
There is also a small kitchenette in the dining area and residents are encouraged to come and help make toast, tea or sandwiches.
