High quality nursing, palliative care and independent living.

Established in 1906 Queen Alexandra Cottage Homes is Eastbourne’s oldest Charity providing high-quality nursing and palliative care in a safe and friendly environment for 28 residents.

Our residents are always treated with respect and dignity and receive the highest standard of care from our experienced and dedicated team. We pride ourselves in treating our residents as individuals and take the time to listen and involve them in all choices relating to their day-to-day care.

We closely involve families and friends to ensure that each resident receives the individual care and support that they need. To ensure that each resident receives continuity of care they are assigned a Registered Nurse and Care Assistant as their own personal keyworkers. The senior management and staff are always available for help and advice and we welcome and encourage visitors at any time of the day or evening.

We pride ourselves on the standard of palliative care (end of life care) offered and work closely with St Wilfrid’s Hospice, MacMillan Nurses and the resident’s own GP to provide continuity of care, relieve any pain and make sure our palliative care is always dignified and appropriate. We will take a holistic approach and ensure physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are all considered.

Independent living is also offered in our award-winning flats and bungalows for 82 people.

This combines the opportunity for our residents to lead a full and active life safe in the knowledge that support is always available. Situated in the St.Anthony’s area of Eastbourne, the Homes have easy access to local bus routes and amenities such as shops, Post Office,churches and hairdressers.

All our accommodation is set around easily accessible and beautiful landscaped gardens. We have shaded seating areas,water features, an aviary and a summerhouse for those lazy afternoons in the sun.
