Chaseley cares for adults over the age of 18 with a wide range of severe physical disabilities, including spinal injury, acquired brain injury, stroke and loss of limbs. We also care for those with progressive conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease.
Whether you have long-term, short-term or day care requirements, we promote a person-centered approach and encourage everyone to take an active part in fulfilling an enhanced quality of life.
Many of our 55 bedrooms have sea views, some rooms can accommodate 2 persons and we encourage residents to personalise their own space. All bedrooms and communal areas have a call bell system that links to our care team.
Our large dining room has adaptations available for those with specific needs around nutrition, more fantastic sea views and lovely home cooked meals. Some residents choose to eat in their own rooms or in the CasBAR, our bistro area with outside decking to enjoy Eastbourne’s high levels of sunshine.
Outings include visits to popular tourist attractions (at an extra cost). Activities can be sedate and relaxing, such as Art or Ceramics, Flower arranging or a visit from Therapy Animals. There are also more demanding activities such as gardening, karaoke, boccia or a lively group game and discussion within our CasBAR.
We want to make sure that we support and enable development, independence and well-being. Whether your goal is to increase your independence or further your abilities, we will build an individual plan of care that is right for you.
Chaseley is a home for those who live here and visit, but we think it is more than that.
In 1945 the house was donated as a home for ex-servicemen with spinal injuries, at the request of Dr. Luttwig Guttmann.
Dr. Guttmann believed that injured soldiers should not be defined by their disabilities and deserved to live a full and active life.
In 1948 Dr. Guttmann started the Stoke Mandeville games, which would later become the Paralympic Games. In the London 2012 Paralympic games, 4,032 athletes from 164 countries proved that a disability does not stop you from achieving amazing things.
Not everyone can win a gold medal, but we aim to help you to reach your goals. We want to know about your dreams and aspirations and work with you as an individual in a friendly and supportive environment.
We help people from all backgrounds. We specialise in supporting people with spinal injuries, an acquired brain injury, stroke, loss of limbs and progressive conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis and Motor Neurone Disease.
Whether you are coming to Chaseley after an accident or illness, for short or long term rehabilitation, a short holiday, or for our outpatient therapy service, you can be sure that we are dedicated to helping you get over those hurdles and enjoy your life to the full.
