About Stildon

Stildon has been specifically designed to enable older people to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives. Conveniently situated close to the centre of East Grinstead, the purpose-built home is set back from the road, surrounded by pretty mature gardens. Stildon provides a home where older people can be helped to live as normally as possible while maintaining their independence and where the emphasis is on quality and enjoyment of life. Staff offer skilled care and are proud to do so in an atmosphere where residents feel they are still in charge of their lives.

Nursing Home

Stildon in East Grinstead provides nursing care for 32 residents and has been designed to provide a home-like atmosphere where individual needs can be met. The accommodation is laid out in two households, each with 16 single bedrooms, a sitting room, dining room, kitchenette and two assisted bathrooms. All the bedrooms are a generous size with en-suite facilities including a shower. The welcoming entrance hall, sitting rooms and dining rooms all provide comfortable places where people can spend time together.

Led by an experienced and well-qualified home manager, the staff at Stildon work as a very close team and are committed to providing high standards of care. They make every effort to provide care which promotes privacy and dignity and to understand each resident's needs and preferences.

Registered nurses are always on duty supported by well trained care assistants and all the staff receive continuous education and development. Local GPs support the home and visit regularly so that residents can be registered with the doctor of their choice. A chiropodist attends regularly and other services can always be arranged.

Stildon has close links with the local community and there is an active Friends of Stildon group which supports the life of the home through fundraising and volunteer activity. There are many regular visitors to the home and frequent events and outings are organised.

Our commitment to the small team approach to care makes it possible to build close relationships and gain an understanding of each resident's individual health and social needs.

Day care services

Stildon offers high quality flexible day care in a warm, intimate and friendly setting. Designed to meet the social and care needs of older people with dementia in East Grinstead, it also affords their carers an occasional break.

Members enjoy meeting in a friendly environment with plenty of activities, excellent resources, good food and great company. They can come for a three hour morning or afternoon session or spend all day. Some choose to relax and socialise, while others get involved with arts and crafts activities, enjoy an exercise class, or take advantage of special services including hairdressing, physiotherapy, chiropody and assisted bathing.

The service is designed to be highly flexible with members attending regularly or occasionally. Stildon enjoys a convenient location with easy access and ample car parking.

Close Care

Stildon Mews comprises 11 high specification two bedroom 'close care' apartments adjoining the nursing home and situated in attractive grounds.

Close Care has become a very popular accommodation choice among people in their retirement years because of its unique combination of advantages. It provides the independence and security associated with home ownership, together with access to personal care and support services if and when needed, giving peace of mind.

  • Repairs to the inside and outside of the home

"I would certainly recommend the home as a happy, special place to live and be cared for. There are gardens, front and back, for residents to enjoy. The home layout is good, allowing the residents to have their own rooms and bathrooms and enjoy the company of the lounges and dining rooms on each floor. The staff and carers make this a happy place to be."

Annual Relatives' Survey, November 2018

"I have just recommended a friend who needed two weeks respite and she was so happy. Loved the food and spoke well of the care she had."

Friend of respite resident

"From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by friendly, knowledgeable qualified staff who showed us the facilities available. Stildon is immaculate with comfortable rooms and cleaned to a high standard. My father was shown compassion by all staff members and we were content knowing he was in good hands."

Daughter of resident

"The home has a relaxed and very friendly atmosphere, I always feel so welcome when I visit. I feel that the staff do actually care about the residents more as part of an extended family group and particularly enjoy the humorous 'banter' that is exchanged without loss of professional behaviour to resident and visitor alike...I recommend Stildon to anyone who finds themselves needing residential care."

Respite Care

Brendoncare Respite Care (Winchester)

Do you care for someone who needs support while you go on holiday or have a bit of time to focus on your needs? Perhaps you need some short-term care or some support while you recover from a hospital stay or operation? We can help.

Our approach to respite care is simple; a care and support plan devised around your needs and a warm welcome to our home, however long you are staying with us. Plus, there are options to extend your visit, if you feel you would like to stay with us longer, so you can take as long as you need to recuperate.

At all of our homes there is a full range of activities on offer for everyone to enjoy or quieter spaces for more tranquil moments. Food is an important part of every day and our chefs spend time with residents, finding out their likes and dislikes. While every Brendoncare home is different, the care provided by each is firmly based on the values of kindness, care, choice and community.

Get in touch today and find out how we can help.

End-of-life Care

End of life care

Our end-of-life services are focused on providing expert support for individuals and their families as they approach their last days, in a respectful, dignified and comfortable environment.

Our qualified, experienced staff are on hand at all times to provide nursing care, which is based on the expressed wishes of the individual. We work with other healthcare professionals to create a palliative approach which supports the person and their family.

Earlier this year, Brendoncare Stildon won a Quality Hallmark Award for end-of-life care from the National Gold Standards Framework Centre, the UK’s largest provider of training in end-of-life care.

The National Gold Standards Framework is about giving the right person, the right care, in the right place, at the right time, every time.
