Happy New Year To All Our Residents And Friends

Happy New Year To All Our Residents And Friends

At Tusker House Care Home, we provide bespoke care tailored directly towards our residents’ requirements, in December we were awarded an overall ‘GOOD’ rating with GOOD in all 5 key areas from the Care Quality Commission. In 2017 we will be looking to make further improvements to the way we deliver care. Why not take a closer look today if you have been searching for a care home for people living with Dementia whether it be for day care, respite or permanent placement in Hastings, Battle, Bexhill or Rye and Westfield areas. We are fortunately located in an elevated position just off The Ridge on the outskirts of Hastings with views over The Channel.

We have recently been reviewed by some of our Resident`s families on www.carehome.co.uk, we would like to thank them for their positive feedback.


We have recently welcomed a new Activities Organiser to our team and are confident that her creative skillset will be of great benefit to our Residents. She has an extensive musical background and plays instruments to help stimulate and entertain our Residents.

We have bingo sessions, engagement in personal and group craft activities including card making and outings to sustain links with the local community. We acknowledge the importance of interaction with pets and have our own friendly dog who visits daily and also welcome visitors` well behaved pets.


We are currently recruiting Night Carers to join our committed team in delivering high quality person centred care. We are seeking experienced level 2 NVQ or equivalent Carers with a proven track record in assisting Residents living with Dementia and Alzheimer`s type conditions.

My dad has been a resident at Tusker House for almost a year now. The staff have always been very attentive allowing my dad to do what he can for himself; they are all very kind and caring. I am always kept up to date with my dads well being. During the pandemic, obviously, no one could visit their loved ones, however, Tusker House set up a WhatsApp video calling system and sent photos which we very much appreciated. The system that has now been put in place to visit residents is amazing, a lot of thought has gone into making it a safe environment for everyone. After not seeing my dad for almost 8-months, I was overjoyed to see how well and contented he was. I cannot thank everyone enough for the continued care they show my dad. I would highly recommend Tusker House to anyone that is looking for a care home

Our family are very grateful to the entire team at Tusker House, they all work tirelessly to care for our mother. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The attention to detail is outstanding; this is best demonstrated in the close monitoring of food and hydration, which has resulted in a (much needed) healthy weight gain. It is a huge comfort knowing our mother is in such safe hands; her every need is attended to by the excellent team. Our mother is treated with dignity and kindness. We are kept up-to-date, well informed and involved with all aspects of her care from carers and the management team who are always available. I cannot recommend this home highly enough!

My mother moved to Tusker House a year ago and the care has been outstanding, far beyond what I expected. My mother told me she loves being there and whenever I visit she seems very contented. There is always a welcoming cheerful atmosphere, the residents are treated as individuals and nothing is too much trouble for the carers. Her room is lovely and always spotlessly clean, and mum is always clean and tidy. The staff are all very approachable and keep me informed of any issues, they all know my mum very well and understand her needs. It was a difficult decision to move mum to a care home, but I feel lucky to have found Tusker House and could not wish for better care for her - I can't fault it at all.

P C (Daughter of Resident)

Looking for a care home for my mum who is 93 yrs of age who has dementia was very daunting challenge for me. I found Tusker House, it stated on their website that it was warm, friendly and has a relaxing atmosphere. This was so true. The staff are amazing and the care my mum receives is second to none. I would recommend Tusker House. I cannot speak highly enough of them.

Joseph H (Son of Resident)

My mum passed away after almost 5 happy years in Tusker House. She was really well cared for and her death was one to be envious of: calm, peaceful supported by people who knew her so well. Surrounded with her Beatles memorabilia and music playing in her own room, not alone and not suffering. We are incredibly grateful to the team of staff who made mum's life worth living again after 20 years of decline. I leave it to my mum's own words "I am so lucky to be here". She truly was.
