Residential & EMI Care Home

Coronavirus: visitor guidance

Subject to a booking system we are now from December 3rd supporting visitors to see their loved ones in a Covid secure area within our conservatory. Given the needs of residents and the cleaning required such visits are initially limited to three 30-minute slots per day with additional slots during the Christmas week. Slots will be allocated fairly to ensure that all residents can have at least one visit every two-three weeks. We will monitor local infection rates. For this reason, it is preferable if visitors (maximum of two) are from the local area where possible and the same social bubble. Please call 01424 452640 to book.

All visitors need to ring the front door at their allocated time, scan the QR code and wait for staff. Visitors will be temperature checked on arrival; sanitise hands, wear masks (unless exempt) and follow any other relevant advice from staff as you are escorted to the conservatory.

We need to continue the current suspension of visitors to all other areas of the home except in emergencies or other exceptional circumstances as detailed in the last update on 14 September 2020. Exceptional circumstances, include medical visits or end of life situations where, subject to agreement nominated relatives will be permitted to visit bedrooms

Old Hastings House is committed to ensuring that we keep all our residents and staff as safe as possible. We shall be following advice which the government and local authority issues specifically to care homes. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me on 452643. Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation.

Best Wishes

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.
