Midway between Eastbourne and Hastings in East Sussex lies Bexhill-on-Sea, which is where MHA’s Richmond Care Home was opened in the early 1970s.
One of a growing number of purpose-built properties opened by MHA, Richmond was built on two floors at a cost of £165,000. Next door, MHA also built a block of retirement flats for former members of staff. This was intended as a place of “enjoyable transition from busy, active service to taking up residence in one of the Homes.”
Early publicity photos emphasise the variety of communal facilities and the encouragement of social activities.
Richmond has been extended twice, now offering dementia care for 21 residents in addition to 31 other places. The Home also works with the local Primary Care Trust in relation to the Gold Standards Framework for palliative and terminal care – the only Home in the area to do this.
