Caer Gwent, Worthing, West Sussex

Caer Gwent in Downview Road, Worthing is fully compliant following a recent inspection (January 2014) by the Care Quality Commission. The home is one of Guild Care’s three care homes with nursing and is located away from the road in quiet landscaped gardens well used by residents.

Many of the rooms open out around the beautiful gardens and are light and spacious with ensuite and level access showers. The dining rooms and lounges are sunny and cheerful and first class care is available to residents who require additional help.

Catering is exceptional with a choice of fresh food prepared daily and a home cooked, nutritionally balanced menu developed in consultation with residents. Special diets and a menu for frail residents have been a great success.

Residents at the home enjoy a wide range of social activities including personalised shopping trips, outings and visits. Families drop in at any time and can also stay to lunch and dinner.

There are a wide range of daily activities for those more active but everyone is included in events at the home including fun days and garden parties if they want to be. Caer Gwent residents have their own hairdresser and benefit from complimentary physiotherapy and aromatherapy sessions.

Caer Gwent

My grandmother passed away earlier this year and the staff at Caer Gwent were amazingly sensitive and professional in the way they respected the complex needs of my family at the time. I would not hesitate to recommend the home.
