The southern coast of England, known for its natural beauty, sea breezes, and as much sunshine as can be found on the rainy British isles, is a natural destination for the UK’s elderly and injured population, seeking rest and healing. Sussex Healthcare has been meeting those needs since its founding, now celebrating 25 years of care.
Sussex Healthcare operates more than 20 facilities, including gyms, daycares, and residential homes. The company’s services cover the breadth of elder care needs, with live-in facilities for dementia and Alzheimer’s sufferers, as well as treatments for younger adults with cognitive and brain disabilities. The philosophy of the company is simple, and makes clear why Sussex Healthcare experiences continued success and growth, that the lives of its patients is about more than just physical health, but a full, rounded life of recreational activities and social outlets. This also includes a staff of trained chefs whose home cooked meals provide sustenance and culinary joy for residents.
The well-rounded approach that Sussex Healthcare takes towards its patients and residents stems from the disparate, but oddly synergetic, backgrounds of its two chairmen. Shafik Sachedina, born in Tanzania but trained in London, came to Sussex by way of a medical career as a dental surgeon. Shiraz Boghani, on the other hand, lacked medical training, but has worked in the hotel industry, with the Splendid Hospitality hotels group. That blend of medicine and hospitality is the foundation for the organization’s continued success.
The daily operations of Sussex Healthcare are overseen by its chief executive officer Amanda Morgan-Taylor, who draws on over 30 years of experience as a mental health nurse, as well as numerous leadership positions with a diverse group of healthcare providers, to provide a patient-centered experience that focuses on a strong relationship between the caregiver and the patient. To ensure the company retains a top-tier staff of caregivers, Sussex Healthcare provides numerous employee benefits, competitive compensation, and maintains its own training academy, to support the continuing education of its staff in maintaining the company’s mission.
As the largest provider of nursing and residential care in southern England, Sussex Healthcare provides services for the elderly, specialized adult care, respite care so that home caregivers can have the mental time off they need, palliative care, and dementia care, among others.
As the UK’s population continues to age, the coasts of southern England will surely continue to draw the pensioners and patients in need of the warm, caring services of Sussex Healthcare.
