Our Care Home In Sussex

Residential Care

At Hilgay Care Home, we provide residential care services to individuals who require daily care and support. Our carers are highly experienced and trained to look after all aspects of care needs, from personal care to helping with everyday activities such as cooking, cleaning and washing. We understand that each individual has different care requirements and our team is dedicated to providing tailored care packages that ensure the best possible outcomes for our residents.

We also have a team of healthcare professionals on-site, including nurses and doctors who can carry out regular medical check-ups and offer treatment when necessary. This helps us to keep an eye on individuals’ changes in health, allowing us to be proactive in supporting their well-being.

Respite Care

We also offer respite care services. These are provided to individuals who have carers and need some time away from the usual care setting. This can be a great way for carers to have a break from their duties, while take over. Our respite care packages are tailored to each individual’s specific needs. This ensures that appropriate care is provided in our care home. Whether you or your loved one require care for a few days or a few weeks, our carers are on hand to provide the care required.

Bespoke Care Plans

At Hilgay Care Home, we understand that care needs can change over time and so all of our care plans are tailored to each individual’s unique needs. We consult with the individual in question and their family or carers about what care should be provided, taking into account any nutritional requirements or likes and dislikes. Our carers then create a bespoke care plan for the individual that reflects their changing needs, ensuring that care is always appropriate and tailored to them. Our attention to individual needs is something that truly sets us apart from other care homes in Sussex. We are proud to offer such a personal service, as our residents become part of the Hilgay family.

Nutrition and Diet

Like many care homes in Sussex, mealtimes are always exciting! Good nutrition is an essential part of care. At our Care Home we ensure that all of our residents receive three well-balanced meals per day. Our team takes care to understand the dietary requirements of each individual. This includes their likes and dislikes when it comes to food so that meals are tailored to them. We also have a variety of snacks available throughout the day. Including cakes and biscuits for those with a sweet tooth! There’s always something to eat and drink for everyone at Hilgay.


We believe that care should be more than simply providing basic care needs. We strive to enrich the lives of our residents through activities both in and out of our care home. At our care home, we provide a range of activities on site such as arts and crafts sessions and music therapy sessions. Furthermore, we organise regular trips out into the local community. These experiences can be incredibly beneficial for our residents’ well-being and provide them with a sense of purpose. Whilst some care homes in Sussex may not prioritise activities and keeping busy, we believe it has many physical, mental and social benefits. So, we are dedicated to providing plenty of fun activities that are inclusive of all of our residents.
