care types

Caring for a loved one can be immensely rewarding but it can also be very tiring on the family. At Southcare Homes we provide short stays of a few days or longer, enough time to provide a short respite for a carer to “recharge the batteries”.

We offer 24-hour care for all residents. A unique personal care plan is prepared for each resident and it is reviewed regularly. All information, data and records relating to residents remains confidential and is protected. Visits to the dentist, optician and physiotherapist are arranged when required.

Palliative care, or end of life care, is care where a recovery from illness is not expected. At Southcare Homes we understand how upsetting this final stage of life can be for everyone. We offer compassionate and sensitive care.

Choosing a care home for someone with dementia is always difficult. At Southcare Homes, we keep finding ways to make our homes more dementia-friendly and can help you by sharing our experience, built up over a generation.

our facilities

Our sunny home in Ringmer has 30 rooms, all with en-suite facilities. There is a ground and first floor, accessible via the passenger lift, giving residents full access to the home. Every room is fully furnished and there is the added option to personalise your space and have your own decor and furniture.

Lime Tree has two lounge areas where residents can socialise, enjoy activities and entertainment and relax. One leads into the large garden via wood decking. Guests are always welcome to spend time with their relatives here.

Lime Tree’s separate dining area is the perfect place to tuck into the range of nutritious meals and various menu options available. Menus can be easily adjusted to suit everyone’s tastes.

Relax and take in some sunshine in our large, sunny garden, with a maintained lawn accessed via timber decking.

our services

All our of our friendly nurses and care teams are on hand ready to help out our residents with any need they have.

Our care plans are individually created to meet the needs of all of our individuals and their families.

Not a morning person? That’s fine with us. Residents can decide for themselves when they want to get up, go to bed and eat their evening meals.

Our in-house chef personally plans the weekly menus and prepares tasty meals on a daily basis for our residents.

Our dedicated activities coordinator creates fun, meaningful activities for our residents and organises regular entertainment evenings. Relatives and guests are also welcome to join in the fun.

We arrange monthly Oomph! trips and other outings so residents and their families can share a day out together. Our residents particularly enjoy our monthly trips to The Depot Cinema, where the movies are brought to life!

We strive to keep our home immaculate and have a maintenance worker on-hand to keep the home running smoothly

We’ll keep you on your toes with regular chiropody sessions and ensure you look your best with our regular hair stylist

our rating

All of our homes are independently assessed by the Care Quality Commission which regulates the standards of health and social care in care homes. 

Our residents’ care and well-being is of primary importance to all of us at Lime Tree. We value and take to heart the feedback given to us by the CQC and have already put in much effort to improve things since the inspection in July (published in August 2019). We look forward to welcoming the CQC back to our home soon so they can see how much positive changes we’ve made.

meet the manager

Hello, I'm Sarah

Sarah Hart
Care Home Manager
Lime Tree House Residential Home

I am a family orientated individual, family is very important to me. I believe that our loved ones should be cared for with a compassionate heart and a strong sense of empathy, and this is what I intend to do with all my residents residing in Lime Tree. Mastering in Philosophy coupled with a career in mental health has lead me to understand that each individual has a story to tell about their life before Lime Tree, and it is that life which mirrors the way they choose to live their life today. Lime Tree is not just about caring for the individual through personal care, but also maintaining a holistic approach to wellbeing by enhancing their mental health too. 

what makes us special

Making memories at the movies.

Lime Tree benefits from a bus stop right outside the home allowing for many trips out for our residents. This includes our monthly trip to The Depot Cinema in Lewes, which brings the flicks to life and is popular among our residents.
