We are opening our doors to help combat loneliness and isolation

Older people are being welcomed into our residential care homes in Bexhill, Battle and Crowborough, for a free hot lunch, to enjoy some friendly company, and to take part in a variety of activities.

Vafa Hurst, Regional Manager said, “We know that one million older people in the UK can go for a whole month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member. Social isolation is a problem local communities can help to tackle. We want to give older people the opportunity to spend time with our friendly residents and staff whilst enjoying some fresh, home cooked food and activities. We’d encourage people to book their place so please call us on the numbers above."

Sussex Housing & Care’s mission is to help people live their later life to the full.
