Mountside Residential Care Home
Moving to a care home may seem like a big step, we offer the opportunity to form new friendships and provide a safe, comfortable place to live, staffed 24 hours a day.
Our aim is to give our residents freedom of choice, privacy, dignity, respect, and complete individuality. To achieve this we ensure that our staff are all well trained and experienced in providing the quality care and support that you need.
Mealtimes are an important part of daily life in our homes. Our chefs carefully select a different menu for each day of the week, ensuring our residents enjoy a variety of delicious dishes. At Mountside we recognise that all mealtimes are a very sociable time of the day.
Soon after residents arrive we put together a personal care plan. By speaking to our residents, we are able to set out their needs and ask them about any personal preferences they might have, so we can tailor our care to their unique needs.
Situated in a prime residential position in Hastings, East Sussex, within a reasonable distance of the seafront, cliffs, shopping centre, and Alexandra Park, our residents at Mountside enjoy the healthy seaside environment that the southeast coast has to offer.
Residents can enjoy our communal areas such as three lounge’s, two dining room’s and landscaped gardens. Our activities coordinator organises various activities, events, and outings working to help individuals pursue interests and hobbies.
All rooms are furnished to a high standard and include an emergency call system. Our residents are encouraged to personalise their bedroom with any small items of furniture, pictures and ornaments.
Our friendly and professionally trained staff are on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide residents with the support they need.
