“At Lauriston, my mum was met with kindness, understanding, respect and dignity. The staff are always caring.” Independent review on

Where are we?

We’re situated in St Leonards on Sea less than a mile from Hastings town centre and the coast. We have easy access to local amenities and shops. We welcome visitors anytime and would love to see you at our coffee morning on the first Tuesday of every month.

Activities, trips and events

Our Activity Coordinators work hard to keep our residents active and entertained with a fun-packed weekly calendar. Activities include: singing, bingo, quizzes, games, baking, afternoon tea and coffee mornings, animal visits, film afternoons, flower arranging, gardening (outdoors and indoors), craft sessions and knitting. We also hold Church services three times a week plus personal support from our Chaplain who is employed at Lauriston.

Our beauty salon offers hair and nail care and hand massages - giving residents a chance to be pampered! And exercise sessions help keep residents active.

We also take residents on weekly shopping trips and regularly invite outside entertainers into the home.
Our residents tell us what they would like to do, and we do our best to make it happen.

And we love any excuse to put on a themed event. Throughout the year you’ll see events including a Pancake Day fun, Valentine’s Day meal and an Easter Extravaganza.

Award-winning music therapy

Lauriston is committed to providing alternative therapies such as music therapy to help alleviate isolation and the symptoms for those living with dementia. Our trained and award-winning therapist is funded by charitable donations.

They spend a day each week at the home and interact directly with residents through live music therapy sessions. This includes singing, playing simple percussion instruments or responding to musical cues in a one-to-one or group setting. Take a look at our video to find out more about this life-changing therapy.

Chaplaincy and pastoral support

Lauriston is proud to be supported by a dedicated Chaplain, who offers pastoral support to all, whatever their beliefs. Our Chaplain is in the home four days a week, providing a listening presence, companionship and one-to-one pastoral support for all residents, their friends and relatives, and staff members - irrespective of their beliefs - and organise worship for those who wish to participate. Where appropriate, residents are encouraged to maintain links with local faith communities.

Seize the day – making unique and memorable opportunities

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.

Visit us for an afternoon 

If you’d like to experience living at Lauriston we’d love to invite you for lunch and to spend an afternoon with us. It’s the best way to really get a feel for our friendly home and decide if we’re right for you.

Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

Lauriston offers care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants, if you wish.

There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely. All this combines to offer a welcome sense of community, which complements the professionalism of MHA’s highly trained staff.

Lauriston has the latest safety and security design features so you can live life to the full with peace of mind.

Your room

All rooms are en suite and comfortably furnished and we have free wifi throughout the home.

You can bring your own furniture to furnish your room, such as a favourite armchair or their own bed. Walls can be personalised with their own pictures, shelving and ornaments.

Nursing care

Lauriston provides specialist nursing care for those with long-term illness or disability where more complex medical support is required.

Our qualified nursing team are available on site 24 hours a day to provide medical and other forms of specialised support. Respecting older people and recognising each resident as a unique individual, our nurses provide not just high quality nursing skills, but truly person-centred care.

We seek to meet physical needs and frailty as they advance with ongoing nursing care. Most of all we ensure that each resident is treated with the dignity and respect that we all deserve.

Dedicated dementia care

MHA is a pioneer of person-centred dementia care in the UK. 

With a reputation for providing the highest quality care, our person-centred dementia care recognises each person as a unique individual and addresses their own spiritual and physical needs, with both reassurance and support.

Everyone with dementia is different. At Lauriston, we take time to get to know each individual’s history, personality and preferences, and find ways to make every day fulfilling.

“One family told us that the staff on the dementia unit had been so kind, they had ensured their mother was comfortable, pain free and never left on her own.” Quote from latest CQC report

Residential care

Finding a place that you can call "home" is a question of getting the right balance.

Lauriston’s residential care provides 24 hour support to help residents maintain independence –giving you peace of mind and a place to make new friends and explore new interests.

In many ways it is like living in a hotel, where you don’t need to worry about laundry, changing the bed or cleaning your room. We will use the district nurse and GPs to provide any medical care. Our caring staff help with everyday activities like bathing and dressing and support at meal times.

At the same time, there is no reason why you can’t maintain links with the local community, or develop new friendships and relationships. Care staff will help you do that, while also working hard to create a home that is full of opportunities.

In the main living areas of the home you will find lounges where you can join in one of the many activities with others or to sit quietly with a book or newspaper.

Food and drink

Mealtimes are an important part of the day here, giving our residents the opportunity to get together and enjoy freshly prepared food in a relaxed restaurant-style environment. We always offer two meal options and our chefs will happily prepare something special if nothing on the menu appeals.

  • Freshly prepared meals, cooked by our in-house chef
  • All dietary and religious needs catered for
  • Locally sourced meats, fruit and vegetables where possible
  • Seasonal ingredients – menus change three times a year with input from residents
  • Specialist equipment and assistance as needed
  • Snacks and drinks available 24 hours a day
  • Home baking every day
  • Relatives welcome to join residents for meals

“People told us that the food was ‘good’, tasty’ and ‘pretty nice.’”
Quote from latest CQC report

Our commitment to your wellbeing

Our highly-trained, dedicated members of staff will always be on hand to provide your care and support in the way that best suits you, in the comfort of your own room with en suite facilities.

We choose the people who work with us very carefully. They need to share our values and respect people, their life experience and personal choices.

We take pride in the cleanliness and maintenance of your home and provide a thorough and friendly cleaning service. Your personal washing will be carefully laundered and returned to you, clean and fresh.

We also provide regular gentle exercise sessions and have close links with GP surgeries, district nurses and dentists. Our in-house hair salon and nail care keeps everyone looking their best and uplifting visits from local schools and pet therapy animals keeps us all young at heart.
