Hallmark opens a second luxury care home in Eastbourne

Hallmark Willingdon Park Manor an 85-bed residential, dementia and nursing home, offers a café, cinema, therapy room, hair salon and cocktail bar.

Following the opening of Milford Manor in Bath in February, a second Hallmark Luxury Care Home has officially opened in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Over 150 guests, including the Mayor Councillor Candy Vaughan, were invited to experience Hallmark Willingdon Park Manor, a new £21.6m, 85 bed, residential, dementia and nursing home, which like its predecessor, also offers a café, cinema, therapy room, hair salon and cocktail bar.

Local businesses and care professionals were encouraged to tickle their tastebuds, enjoy demonstrations from some of the home’s 90 new team members and view the facilities which include nine luxurious suites, which form part of a unique retirement living offering called The Residences.

Residents who live at The Residences have access to a premium suite with a kitchenette, and exclusive amenities, such as a celebrations area and terrace, fine dining and concierge services.

Other features at the home include a sensory room to support residents living with dementia, an activities room with a baby grand piano, and a winter and summer terrace which will be used for gardening, bird watching and socialising. These facilities are further complemented by a summer house, gardening club area with raised planters, and a courtyard that supports alfresco dining in the warmer months.

The afternoon event concluded with speeches and musical entertainment from a harpist, and the Download choir.

General Manager at Hallmark Willingdon Park Manor, Ian Cole comments: “We had a fabulous time, introducing our new home to the Eastbourne community and our 90 dedicated team members, who are passionate about supporting residents to thrive in later life.

“Much thought and consideration has gone into Willingdon Park Manor to help residents live active, independent and fulfilled lives and we have lots of spaces where residents and their loved ones can enjoy quality time together and make new memories.

“We are excited to see what the future holds for Willingdon Park Manor and we would like to thank the local community for the incredible, warm welcome we have received to date.”

Managing Director at Hallmark Luxury Care Homes, Aneurin Brown added: “It’s been an exciting but busy few months for Hallmark with two new sites acquired, and the official launch of Midford Manor.

“I am incredibly proud of the team who have made Willingdon Park Manor, the beautiful home that it is today.
