The Sussex Healthcare Group started in 1985 and now employs the latest innovative technologies to improve the residents of South East England’s quality of life and well-being. The group is composed of twenty independent care homes that offer a significant variety of services ranging from respite care, day-care, a specialist gymnasium, sensory rooms, hydrotherapy pools, physiotherapy and several holistic therapies. They provide this care in one of many carefully chosen facilities that were chosen for their available facilities. These facilities were then staffed with dedicated and committed team members that were specifically selected for each care home because of their unique experience and qualifications. In addition to what they bring from previous experience, they all attend in-house training to insure the Sussex Healthcare Group’s on-going quality strategy. Sussex Health Care is a group of medical facilities located primarily in Sussex and in South East England.
The Sussex Healthcare Group provides a home-away-from-home environment for all their patients at their varying facilities. Some examples of the types of facilities they run can be found in Wisteria Lodge and Woodhurst Lodge. Wisteria Lodge is located in Nutley, East Sussex.

At Woodhurst Lodge, a special build home, care is provided for 10 people with neurological and long term health conditions.
