Danielle Henderson

Established in 2003, Whitebriars is a 26 bed home specialising in early onset dementia and slowly progressing dementia.

We are situated close to Bexhill town centre and just a stones's throw away from the beautiful ands accessible sea front. The building itself is rooted in the town's history and was the Earl de la Warr's holiday seaside villa.

Whitebriars has a relaxing, homely feel that is reflected in its decor. There is a lovely dining room where fresh home-cooked meals are served daily. There is a lift and stair lift, which provides full access to all levels and a beautiful secluded courtyard garden, with a relaxing water feature.

As part of our progressive approach to Dementia Care, Whitebriars boasts its own Hairdressers Salon. Many of the home's corridors are decorated to represent streets and all our residents' bedroom doors are decorated as front doors. This has proven to reduce anxiety for service users and helps our residents to continue enjoying a sense of independence in a residential setting.

Care of our residents is centered around each individual, allowing their unique personality to shine and their beliefs, likes and dislikes to be respected and supported at all times. Friends and family are always welcome to visit the home and we believe time spent with our loved ones can be a tonic for us all. As well as encouraging regular visits, we are proud of our progressive Person Centred Software which gives permitted family and friends access to photos and liv updates via a family relative portal.

We are hugely proud that Whitebriars ws a finalist in the 2020 National Care Awards and Great British Care Awards 2020.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

safe-tick Sterilisation & Disinfection Devices We are using sterilisation and/or disinfection devices within our care setting.

Safe Visiting Space

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

Description

At all of our residential care homes we strive to focus on our individual residents varied and different needs, ensuring that every resident enjoys the quality of life that they deserve with the highest level of independence maintained. We are constantly updating our skills and knowledge and always try to work with the most progressive developments in dementia care. This approach is always focused on what residents can achieve and enjoy, rather than what they are unable to do. We follow the "Feelings Matter Most" model of care pioneered by David Sheard of Dementia Care Matters. We share his belief in the importance of meeting our resident's emotional needs as well as providing the best physical care.

We offer a variety of engaging activities seven days a week and are always looking for new innovative ideas to stimulate and encourage those we care for. We try to ensure all our service users experience the best possible outcomes from our activities programme by getting to know individuals' preferences from the moment they join us, aiming to cater for everyone's needs and interests.

We also have a bus trip from each home two/three times every week, these range from a trip to the local supermarket or the seafront to a full day out.
