Claydon House Care with Nursing is an elegant Victorian property which has been refurbished to the highest standards. With delightful cottage gardens, it is quietly situated in one of the most sought after residential areas of Lewes. The home provides excellent residential, nursing and dementia care for older people. It is proud that it has the ability to provide a more seamless service based on the changing and ongoing needs of those within our care.

Claydon House is ideally located in a peaceful no through road close to the centre of Lewes. While enjoying this tranquil setting, the home is also conveniently placed for easy access to local amenities, shops and public transport. Our aim is to provide an attractive and restful environment for residents and visitors alike, so that they can enjoy a high quality of life based upon dignity, privacy and independence.

Benefiting from its classical Victorian heritage, the home has been sympathetically extended and converted to retain many original features. At the same time, it is equipped with facilities to ensure a high standard of comfort and care. Admiralty, an extension to the rear of the main property, is a new part of the home which has been purposely designed to assist our residents with dementia. It offers a stimulating and individualised approach to care and is accessible from the Claydon House main entrance on Wallands Crescent.

Review of Claydon House Care with Nursing

Each time I visit Claydon House I am always impressed with the staff, especially the nurses who always make time for us. Always so clean and none of the 'smells' etc you associate with hospitals and care homes. Menu's seem varied so always a choice. My sister is always treated with dignity and respect. Overall completely happy with Mary's care.

Review of Claydon House Care with Nursing

My father has been a resident at Claydon House since early January. He took a while to settle but Karen and her staff have been excellent with him, he is now relaxed and enjoying his time there. They have only just taken on a new entertainment manager so I expect that soon I can also give excellent to that too.

Review of Claydon House Care with Nursing

My mother has been a resident at Claydon House for 8 years. She will celebrate her 99th Birthday in August and is very happy. She is being cared for kindly and sensitively at all times by the lovely staff who are really dedicated to the well being of their residents. My mother is treated as an individual with particular personality traits and her care is tailored to these. I very much appreciate the flexibility of Claydon House. I am able to take my Mother out at a moments notice, wherever I wish which is brilliant. The food is fabulous. Thank You.
