Meet The Manager

Kevin Burke is the Registered Manager at Caer Gwent.

Caer Gwent is an elegant country manor style care home suitable for all needs including nursing. It offers high-quality accommodation and 24-hour expert nursing care delivered by friendly and dedicated staff.

The care home, which is set in a quiet residential area of Worthing, also boasts a beautifully landscaped garden and a piano bar ideal for entertaining friends and family. 

Guild Care is a charity at the heart of the community. We support older people, people with dementia, carers and those with learning disabilities. Unlike others who run care homes, Guild Care is not-for-profit, so every penny raised goes straight back to the people who need it most – those in our care.

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.

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.

Mobile Phone Network Coverage (mobile “signal”)
