Chaseley cares for adults over the age of 18 with a wide range of severe physical disabilities, including spinal injury, an acquired brain injury, stroke and loss of limbs. We also care for those with progressive conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and Parkinson’s 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 two 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 or day trips to France. There are relaxing activities, such as yoga, flower arranging or a visit from Pet Pals. They can also be more lively activities such as gardening, karaoke, boccia and discussion groups.
We want to make sure that we support the development, independence and wellbeing of the people who use our services. 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.
We also offer respite holidays.
Eastbourne is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the South East of England, due largely to the award winning beaches, Victorian seafront and high levels of sunshine compared to the rest of the UK.

Eastbourne Bandstand and other venues such as the Devonshire Theatre, Eastbourne Winter Garden and the Royal Hippodrome play host to some of the country’s best plays, musicals and performances.
Every year Eastbourne is the location for Airbourne, the country’s largest free airshow and Chaseley has exceptional views of the action.
