Rivendale Lodge was opened in 1986 as a residential care home, before specialising into the EMI (elderly, mentally infirm) care group, who suffer from such conditions as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, a few years later.
Re-branded from ‘Brook Hill‘ in February 2007, Rivendale Lodge is an adapted Edwardian manor house, registered for 27 residents, with 23 single bedrooms and 2 shared bedrooms. Situated on one of the premier roads in Eastbourne, Rivendale Lodge is within easy reach of the local town facilities and also the Eastbourne District General Hospital.
Rivendale Lodge has undergone many improvements and changes over the last few years, working closely with the RCA, CQC, and East Sussex Social Services. These include the addition of a platform lift situated at the rear of the building and providing access to the first and second floor.
We have also added a conservatory to the front of the building, adding to our continued goal for providing further communal space. This is the second stage of our expansion plan, the first part of which was to enlarge the home’s lounge area.
