Hankham Lodge offers ‘second-to-none’, high quality day care, respite care and permanent residential care in a superb country setting close to Eastbourne on the Sussex coast.

Hankham Lodge is owned and run day-to-day by Peter Sims who lives on the premises. Aside from the Owner/Manager the daily care programme of Hankham Lodge is delivered by a staff team of deputy manager, senior care assistants, care assistants, cooks and housekeeper/cleaners.

Hankham Lodge has a friendly homely atmosphere caring for both men and women who can no longer manage all the rigorous requirements that independent daily life brings. Our location and care standards are regarded as the very best in this locality – see our testimonials and recommendations.

At Hankham Lodge we do not provide long term nursing care or specialised advanced dementia care. We specialise in providing a safe comfortable and stimulating environment for older people to maintain a good quality of life in their later years.

Before someone comes to live here with us at Hankham Lodge there are certain things we need to know. We have to make an initial assessment of the care a prospective resident requires, the type of social activities/hobbies they enjoy,  what religious needs they may have. Also we make available to them what they can expect from us, by way of our admission procedure/meeting and residents welcome pack.
