Why Wait?- The Hawthorns Eastbourne

“We moved in the day after the first national lockdown in 2020 and were wondering if it was right for us having lived in our previous home for 49 years. It was a huge change, but we are so pleased we made the move.

There are no worries about the maintenance of our property with all our bills covered in our monthly rental fee. On top of this, we receive lovely meals served with wine!

It has truly given our family peace of mind as well as ourselves. So Why Wait?”

“I came to The Hawthorns Eastbourne in late July 2019 and was made to feel welcome and part of the existing retirement community. The staff are, without exception, warm and friendly and helpful, and such has been the standard of care throughout the Covid-19 pandemic that we have been able to lead a fairly normal life.

The Hawthorns truly provides an excellent all-inclusive package. The food is delicious, indeed with wider-than-average choices. There are many and varied activities provided to every resident, free or with some financial support. The buildings are quiet and peaceful, with ample space for social intercourse.

I am very happy here and its excellent value for money.”

Donald Eyre-Walker, The Hawthorns Eastbourne resident.
