Chaseley are very proud to share that they have won an Award for Excellence.

The team at South East Star share with us that “In any industry there are always organisations that stand out from their peers and set the standards that others in their field have to aspire to achieve. Having celebrated their 75th anniversary last year, The Chaseley Trust is an organisation that certainly meets this criteria leading the way when it comes to providing nursing care for adults with neurological and physical disabilities. They have made quite a name for themselves over the years establishing a well-deserved reputation as one of the stars of their industry and if the last few years are any barometer of what the future holds then there are many successful chapters yet to be written in The Chaseley Trust story.

The award is well deserved and further cements their reputation for delivering the highest quality care with such incredible consistency. The awards are obviously no accident so what is it that distinguishes them from other care providers and how have they enjoyed so much success? There are many factors but first and foremost they are good at what they do with the entire team at Chaseley sharing the same steadfast determination to maintain the highest possible standards of care for all of their residents.”

Chaseley’s CEO, Emma Rich-Spice says, “Leading a trust like Chaseley comes with great responsibility and this means working continuously to develop the capabilities of not only Chaseley as a building, but also that of its residents and workforce. It’s about understanding the world around which Chaseley resides and the development of a holistic setting, which protects the precious people we are lucky enough to look after and those key staff who work tirelessly every day to provide the best possible care there is. This award is a testament to the team and I thank you all for being so wonderful and amazing.”

The main source of Chaseley’s funding comes from residents’ fees, which cover the cost of their care package and contributes to the daily running costs of the home. Various commissioning bodies fund the majority of resident care packages and they have just 5% surplus to fund all their additional costs, including the upkeep of their beautiful building, upgrading their equipment, and to provide the extra social and recreational activities and services that enhance the comfort and well-being of their residents, which is why they rely on donations and fundraising.

Chaseley is an independent charity-owned care home located in a stunning location on Eastbourne’s seafront. It is a 55-bed home that specialises in long-term nursing and respite care for people with complex disabilities, such as Acquired and Traumatic Brain Injury, stroke, spinal cord injury and degenerative neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone and Parkinson’s disease.

Their multi-disciplinary approach to care and rehabilitation includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy and recreational activities, ensuring their person-centred approach is focused on

individuals regaining as much independence as possible, so that their psychological well-being and emotional balance are maintained. In addition to this their facilities included an on-site, fully accessible gym specifically designed for people who are disabled and living in the community.
