Find Your Next Job at Westergate House Care Home in Fontwell
Originally a country house built by the former Chancellor of the Exchequer in the 1820s, Westergate House was thoughtfully converted into a care home in 2003. Full of charm and character, our Grade II listed home has spacious en-suite bedrooms, a bright conservatory, and a beautifully landscaped garden for our residents to enjoy. We take real pride in our home which is the ideal environment to deliver quality, person-centred care.
All of our team plays a part in helping new residents to move in. Our maintenance team eases the transition by personalising residents’ rooms and putting up pictures. Our carers and nurses quickly get to know residents and put their uniquely tailored care plans into action, and our managers make sure their needs are always met so they receive the best possible care.
To make sure our residents settle in and lead fulfilling lives, the activities team finds out their interests and incorporates them into our daily routine. There’s always something going on at Westergate House, whether it’s baking, art, or an outing in our minibus to the town centre, sea front, or the beautiful Sussex Downs countryside. If you join the team here, you’ll work alongside dedicated individuals who make living here a meaningful, enjoyable experience for our residents, and have plenty of career opportunities along the way.
