Beech Hurst Nursing Home
Beech Hurst provides specialist care together with a warm welcome in a lovely part of Haywards Heath town. Beech Hurst offers personalised nursing care. Our team has specialist expertise in supporting individuals who have Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. We take a person-centred approach to care – we look beyond the condition by getting to know the individual and understanding every aspect of their life. We aim to go the extra mile to make sure each resident has enjoyable and fulfilling experiences every day. Our activities co-ordinators take residents out to local garden centres and shops, and to nearby attractions such as Brighton Pier. They make sure everyone gets the most out of their day. We are committed to continual learning and development, to ensure we always provide the best possible care. Our services Dementia care End of life care Nursing care Nursing dementia care Respite care
