Hurstwood View, Uckfield

Of the care homes that I would recommend, I would have to include Hurstwood View in Uckfield. Situated about 5 minutes from the town of Uckfield with loads of amenities this home offers assisted living apartments for sale, as well as the nursing care in the care home.

What is special about these apartments is that they are in effect set within the care home. So they offer totally autonomous living with the support of a care home next door should or when you need it. They would be perfect for a couple if one person needed nursing care and the other was fit and able to live independently. Quite literally the visiting time from apartment to care home bed would be 45 seconds.

The apartments are either one or two bedroom and are well fitted with a kitchen and very smart en suite wet room.

If you think it might be time to have some support around you these apartments are worth a look.

Debbie Harris was introduced to me by my Solicitor. At that time I was finding it extremely hard trying to find a care home to take my husband who had very challenging behavioural problems and had been asked to leave his existing care home. Debbie worked for a month contacting homes, explaining the problems to them and where they thought they might be able to help, visiting the homes and arranging assessments. She eventually found somewhere willing to take him. She has always been at the end of the phone or on Email to help and support me and I feel I have a friend who really cares about me and my husband. I can't thank her enough.
