Residential & EMI Care Home

Coronavirus: visitor guidance

We now need to stop all visiting completely except in emergencies. Emergencies will include 999 related incidents and some other exceptional circumstances such as when a resident is at the End of life where subject to protective measures such as the wearing of masks a nominated relative who is well might be permitted to visit a short time to see their loved one. This is strictly in agreement with the manager based on current advice and in the context of not having a positive case of coronavirus in the home.

As you know we had kept part of the home open as long as possible given the emotional benefits for residents as per the previous notice on 17-03-20. We would encourage you to use technology to keep in touch with loved ones such as Skype or facetime via our large portable tablet. In addition, there is a no need to deliver items where this can be emailed.

Old Hastings House is committed to ensuring that we keep all our residents and staff as safe as possible. We shall be following the advice which the government has issued specifically to residential care homes.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on 452643 or one of the Care Team on 452640. Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation.

Best Wishes

Jason Denny

Registered Manager

call ahead of your visit as this advice may change at short notice.

Welcome to the Old Hastings House Website

Old Hastings House was acquired by the Magdalen and Lasher Charity in 1981 and is run on a not-for-profit basis.

The main building is a fine house that was built in 1700 and became the home for an eighteenth century mayor of Hastings. Standing in its own grounds the house has 44 en-suite bedrooms, three-quarters of which are situated within the two extensions built in the 1980s. Our Magdalen Higher Care Suite has a further 15 en-suite bedrooms.

Priding itself on its family atmosphere, Old Hastings House has fine views across Hastings Old Town and is located within walking distance of local shops and amenities.
