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. Please get in touch with us to see how we can help you.

Hello, I'm Kristie
Care Home Manager
Parkside Lodge Residential Home
My journey into care started with my grandmother years ago. She was a nurse and I will always remember her taking so much pride in her job. I joined the care sector in 2005, working in a nursing home as a carer. I did my NVQ 2 and 3 at my local hospital and spent six years working in the hospital stroke ward. I soon was assigned champion for the older ones in the ward and was involved as much as possible. After six years, I wanted to try something new. It was at that point that I had the opportunity to complete my NVQ5 and here I am. I love working at Parkside Lodge. It has a very homely atmosphere and the staff have been amazing and supportive at helping me settle in here. I am so proud to be able to do things for the residents, talking with them and spending time with them and seeing them do things that they haven’t done in a while is a real joy. When I see them happy, having a good time and being looked after properly, I’m happy.
Time-travelling with the talkies.
Our residents can step back in time when they enter our vintage 1920s-themed cinema room, opened by the Deputy Mayor of Worthing last year. Residents love spending time in here, watching classics old and new!
