Arundel Park Lodge

Arundel Park Lodge is a family run establishment which opened on the 6th January 1988 to provide the elder person with their required nursing needs. The Registered providers are Anita and Michael Redwood and their mission is “to maintain independence and provide discreet care within a warm and homely atmosphere, surrounded by comfortable and cheerful accommodation”.

Arundel Park Lodge Nursing Home is located in Saltdean immediately to the East of the historic village of Rottingdean within a few minutes’ walk from the Promenade and approximately five miles to the East of Brighton and a similar distance from Newhaven. Arundel Drive East forms a virtually circular thoroughfare extending around Saltdean Park. Arundel Park Lodge is located on the eastern side of the park and enjoys magnificent sea views.

The houses are well-maintained 1930 Art Deco style properties with well-tended gardens and a sun terrace at the rear of the property. It lies opposite the park within easy reach of the Saltdean Lido buildings including the Library and Community Centre. The park itself is large and well maintained with many recreational facilities available such as bowls and tennis. There are two parades of shops within walking distance and the area is well served by the religious community with churches and halls.

Covid 19

Arundel Park Lodge has been pro-active in its response to Covid19 and our values have remained the same, with our residents at the heart of all that we do. 

To continue to promote everyone’s safety, we are currently requesting that all visitors to the service continue to wear a type IIR mask which are available for your use on arrival and we ask that friends and family refrain from visiting when they are feeling unwell. We wish to continue to operate safely so visitors co-operation is appreciated. 

We ask all visitors to respect the residents mealtimes as protected time, unless visiting to join a resident for a meal or assist them with their eating and drinking, we kindly ask for the hours of 12 noon until 2pm daily to be avoided.

Arundel Park Lodge itself is attractively decorated throughout. The safety of our residents, their guests, members of staff and outside providers is always paramount and hence the house has a modern fire detection and alarm system which covers every room and corridor. Wide hallways, hand rails and a passenger lift provides access to all levels within the home which includes wheelchair users.

Two lounges provide either a sea view or doors and views to the terrace and rear gardens. There is also a dining room and a quiet seating area with garden views for the comfort of the residents and their guests. The garden is well stocked with mature plants and is quite a sun trap. The service also boosts a garden room for residents use.

The home accommodates thirty two residents with 26 single occupancy rooms, all with en-suite facilities, 14 of these with wet room facilities and 3 shared rooms, also with en-suite facilities. Every room within the home is tastefully furnished and has a colour television and emergency nurse call system with individual heating controls.

We continually aim to provide a safe, secure and comfortable environment for all our residents. Help is given to maintain independence and mobility. Residents are cared for as individuals and are encouraged to live their lives to the full. Central to our philosophy is the belief in respect for the individual and our recognition that Arundel Park Lodge becomes their home.

We have created a bright cheerful environment, with full 24-hour supervision by trained and experienced staff. A registered nurse is on duty at all times. All areas enjoy easy access and a wide range of mobility aids are provided including hoists, grab rails, a passenger lift to all floors and specially adapted equipment.

The qualified catering staff provide a varied and nutritious daily menu to a very high standard and are able to cater for special dietary needs. All meals are freshly produced on the day. Guests are welcome to join residents at meal times.

The scale of fees is based on the type of room occupied and level of care needed.

We currently have COVID restriction in place for visiting residents at Arundel Park Lodge which are subject to change without notice. All visitors must book an appointment in advance and are required to carry out a lateral flow test which must be registered before or on arrival. Exception to these current guidelines are at the discretion of the Manager and will be discussed with family and friends on a case by case basis.

Great care is taken when selecting our staff, the requirements being their ability and knowledge but also commitment; we complement this by our ongoing training programmes.

Arundel Park Lodge is a family run establishment; the Registered Manager is involved in the recruitment of all potential staff. They are directly involved with the admission of all new residents and their integration into the home.

Arundel Park Lodge does not show favour or treat one group of people less favourably due to their gender, marital status, age, disability, race, religion and culture.

A local GP provides this service and our residents are encouraged to register with the practice. Residents are also supported to continue with their named practitioner if this is possible and within area.

In addition to the medical services above, the home receives regular visits from a Chiropodist, Hairdresser and other visiting services can be arranged to meet with the individual’s requirements.

This is carried out on the premises with the aid of modern laundry equipment. The cost of laundering residents’ clothing is included in the room fees with the exception of those items requiring dry cleaning.

The spiritual needs of our residents are also considered and visits from local clergymen and religious groups are encouraged.

Newspapers can be delivered daily if a resident wishes to purchase these.

Please note that charges arising from hairdressing, dry-cleaning, newspapers, chiropody, dental, optical and other private services are not included in the room fees and will be charged for.
