Southdowns Nursing Home

Southdowns Nursing Home is a 50-bed care home within a residential area of St Leonards East Sussex that specialises in caring for adults with nursing needs, dementia and other mental health conditions.

By taking the time to truly understand each resident and the people who are important to them, we can take a person-centred approach to care which ensures the needs of our residents are met while maintaining dignity and respect.

Our aim is to provide the care and support that our residents need to lead a comfortable life, make independent choices and be actively involved in their own care.

Around Southdowns Nursing Home

“I dedicated my early adult life to being a full-time mother to my three children. Once they reached a more independent age, I wanted to branch out and find my own independence and carve out my own career for the future.I started work in children services as a Nursery Practitioner. I then changed direction and started working within the adult care sector – firstly, domiciliary, then care home services.

In 2012, I started work at ‘Queen Mary’s Nursing Home ‘ which was to later become Mulberry House – Specialist Residential & Nursing Care. My first role was Senior Care Assistant. After about a year and a half of working night shifts, I changed to day shift, and this was when my progression really started.It was quickly recognised that I naturally took a managerial lead in situations, and the support I received within the company was welcomed and valued.

I became the first Assistant Practitioner for the company, leading teams of staff and liaising more with external professionals. I then took on the role of Unit Lead and completed my QCF level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care. This led to being appointed as the Deputy Manager of Mulberry House.Working within the company for the last 11 years has not only allowed me to develop and grow my skill set, but it has also been the most rewarding 11 years of my career.

I am very excited to embark on the next stage of my journey as the Registered Manager of Southdowns Nursing Home and the Assistant Director of The Mulberry Community.”
