Croft Meadow is a spacious modern care home which opened in 2009 in the West Sussex  village of Steyning. An indoor ‘Gallery’ runs the length of the building linking the wings to the facilities and making the home easy to get around with also additional quiet communal spaces at the ends of the gallery. As well as developing friendships in the home we encourage residents to establish and maintain close links with their relatives, friends and the local community.

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.

I have been at Croft Meadow for 4 years and 11 months. Prior to this I was at Elmcroft another Shaw home in Shoreham by Sea where I stayed for over 7 years.

I really enjoy the interaction with the residents and I enjoy working with the team.

I was a Staff nurse at Worthing Hospital then later in my career I was a registered General Nurse at Baytree’s Nursing Home before joining team Croft Meadow. 

I was originally here on a bank contract but, now have a permanent contract at Croft Meadow as a Registered General Nurse which I really enjoy.

I have been working at Croft Meadow in both of my roles for close to 4 years and I thoroughly enjoy caring for the residents here and working with the staff. There is a definite family feel within the home.

After having my children, I started at Croft Meadow (age 24) as a care assistant then after 29 years as a carer I changed roles to domestic. I have an NVQ in care level 2. I love working in the home and it fits in well with my family life. The most thing i enjoy about my job is chatting with residents, and having a laugh with them and seeing them smile.
