Welcome to The Normanhurst
Residential Care Home and Nursing Home on Bexhill's historic seafront promenade
A warm, friendly, caring environment within a hotel setting, where residents can live in dignity and comfort, whilst feeling safe and protectedLearn more
The Normanhurst is a residential care home and nursing home occupying a large corner site overlooking Bexhill's seafront. Lawns surround the buildings with a large garden at the rear.
The Normanhurst has been in the same ownership for over 50 years and was the first local residential care home to register with the local authority. We cater for full-time residents, holiday stays, post-operative recuperation and respite care.
We aim to provide an environment in which our residents can enjoy themselves and live in comfort, free from worry. We give every resident the freedom to live life their way, not be organised into activities or lifestyles that they may not wish to follow.
We treat people as individuals with their own wants and needs, which is why all residents receive a bespoke care plan. Our approach is, as near as possible, that of a caring relative.
We are conscious that at all times our residents have a choice and are under no obligation to continue their stay with us beyond the end of the week. At the Normanhurst you are not committed to a particular room or scheme. You may stay for as long or short a time as you wish. You may decide to change your room, or that you require more care and assistance and move to the connected Nursing or EMI Homes.

The Normanhurst was my mum's home for the last 7 or so years of her life. Firstly in the hotel and for the last year or so in the Annexe. When I say home, this really was her home. Her rooms in each place were full of her own furniture and possessions. The staff were amazing from the cleaners, chefs, carers, activities staff, receptionists, waiting staff, hairdresser, laundry, maintainance and office staff. Everyone looked after her. She formed some wonderful friendships with many of the staff.

My grandma was a resident for many years initially in the residential part in a beautiful room overlooking the sea, then later in the nursing home. She passed away 3 years ago. She received the most wonderful care and consideration from all the staff and every time we visited from Wigan we were made very welcome. Thank you to all the staff, highly recommended.

Absolutely delighted to see my father so happy and well cared for in the Normanhurst.
The staff are wonderful: patient, kind and reassuring with occasional and entirely appropriate arm touches or hand-holding which are so reassuring for someone like my Dad who has Alzheimers.

My father has been living here for four years. He's happy and well cared for. Although he doesn't choose to join in many of the activities, he knows they are there for his enjoyment. He loves the fact that having given up his home, he has his own furniture here and can still live independently within his means. He enjoys brief walks along the promenade and so this is situated ideally.
Whenever he is unwell or needs extra care, we know he is in good hands.
