Edendale Lodge - A 35 Bed Purpose Built Residential Care lodge in Crowhurst in Battle, East Sussex.
Edendale is situated in the seaside town of St Leonards on Sea, near hastings, in the heart of East Sussex. Located on an attractive residentual road, just minutes from the toen centre and beach. Edendale provides a home to elderly members of the community who are no longer able to live independently or require some companionship.
As specialists within Dementia, our team of professionals are highly experienced in providing dementia care and 24 hour support to those suffering the effects of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, confusion and other similar conditions. We pride ourselves on providing a warm and loving home for our residents and an environment which is stimulating yet peaceful and dignified.
Edendale is a registered member of the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the principal regulatory body for the care industry. We welcome male and female residents of 55 years and over and place no restrictions on religious practices or pets, provided they do not disturb others. We provide long term care and short term respite care to not only residents originating from the local area, but also those from London, Kent (Tunbridge Wells) and all other regions of the UK who are prepared to live with us in East Sussex. Prior to new residents joining us, we carry out a full assessment of their needs, preferences, medical condition and personality. On arrival, our staff make every effort to settle a new-comer into the home, a process which can be disorientating for an elderly individual unless handled with genuine care and concern.
We recognise that moving to a residential home can be as big a transition for a family as it is for a resident. We aim to provide on-going support to you and your loved one, not only through the initial move but for years to come.
The team at Edendale consists of approximately 30 members of staff who see to residents’ needs 24 hours a day, all year round. Care extends to personal and physical needs including regular toileting, bathing, dressing and grooming, whilst at the same time discretely relieving the discomfort and embarrassment of incontinence and maintaining respect and dignity.
Nursing requirements, fulfilled by the District Nurse, are happily accommodated and we liaise with residents’ GPs and doctors on a regular basis so as to ensure that individuals are in optimum health.
Mobile hairdressers, chiropodists, opticians and dentists also visit our home regularly to provide their expertise, and we have handymen and gardeners who work throughout the week to maintain Edendale’s good upkeep and pleasant gardens.
