SHC’s Board visit properties in eastern region

Staff and residents have recently welcomed members of our Board to sites in our eastern region, including Bexhill, Hastings and Battle.

Sussex Housing & Care has a voluntary Board, made up of individuals from a variety of professional backgrounds who meet six times a year and attend Board briefings in between main Board meetings.

Esme Hilliard, Board Member joined the tour of our properties and said: “It was very enjoyable to have the opportunity to once again meet residents and listen to their comments and experiences of living in our care homes and sheltered housing. Residents were very complimentary about Sussex Housing & Care’s staff saying they were professional and caring.      

It was interesting to chat to residents and hear their different needs and expectations. It was also interesting to see how each of our properties is unique and different from each other, for example, in towns, by the sea, rural, leasehold and rented.

The best part of my day was chatting to a group of residents at Saxonwood care home in Battle, two of whom were there for respite care.  They were so positive about the care and support they received it made me feel proud to be part of Sussex Housing & Care.”

Lindsey Sherwood, Care Home Manager at Ardath in Bexhill said: “The staff team and residents enjoyed the tour and putting faces to names of our Board members. We gave them a tour of the care home and it’s made us all feed more united and connected.
