The Laurels Care Home in Hastings

The decision to relocate a parent to a care home is never easy. This decision is especially taxing when the move forces your parents to live apart from one another.

This situation is more common than many people realise. My elderly couples are forced apart when one of them requires a high level of care due to physical or cognitive decline. This separation of elderly couples can have terrible consequences – The loss of a long-term spouse is linked with mental health concerns, increased risk of poor physical health, and a lower-than-average lifespan. While separation is sometimes impossible to avoid, it is almost always better to keep elderly couples together when possible.

That is why The Laurels Nursing Home, Hastings, has provided The Bourne Suite to improve the health outcomes of their residents. The suite provides every home comfort, including smart TV with video stream and modern music system, with the added benefit of 24-hour care. The spacious room offers a seating area with views to the garden through a Juliette balcony, an en-suite and, most importantly, the opportunity for couples to be together.

“This valued addition to our accommodation can be adapted to support single or double occupation, either for respite care or on a permanent basis,” Sally Bossom from The Laurels told us. “We welcome visitors and would love to show you what we have to offer at The Laurels”

From landscaped gardens with a soothing water feature to tastefully decorated rooms, a cinema room and the all-important home cooked meals, The Laurels is certainly worth visiting if you are thinking of the next stage in life for yourself or your loved ones.
