Established in 1991, Avon House was one of the first care homes to specialise in dementia care. The home is part of the Cobham Care Group along with its sister home Avon Manor. The home is situated in a quiet, tree-lined road that is only a short distance from Worthing Hospital, Worthing town centre and the seafront.

Cobham Care’s philosophy is that every resident is an individual - individuals’ needs change and therefore need to be continually addressed. In order to achieve this at Avon House, information about a resident’s life and loved ones is gathered from relatives soon after admission. This allows our carers to better understand the individual and treat them with a greater degree of sensitivity and understanding. We pride ourselves on the friendly, caring and homely atmosphere we provide. Where our residents are encouraged to lead an active, dignified and independent life.

We employ 28 care staff with a range of NVQ qualification levels up to level 5. Our staff are selected for their kindness, patience and their ability to care for people with dementia. All staff are provided with training in first aid, manual handling, understanding dementia, safeguarding vulnerable adults and other relevant subjects. Our careful selection process and ongoing training and assessment is a comfort to relatives who, understandably, are very worried about entrusting loved ones to the care of others. It also ensures that our residents are receiving the highest level of care.

Avon House itself has recently undergone a complete renovation with the addition of an orangery overlooking a park as well as new facilities for hairdressing. All communal areas are newly furnished and provide a comfortable home where the ambience is uplifting and both residents and staff are happy in their surroundings.

The residents’ rooms are situated on the ground and first floors. Whilst every room is fully furnished, we are pleased to accommodate any personal belongings a resident may wish to bring.

Please feel free to contact Avon House and our Registered Manager, Michele Gerrish, would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. She would also like to invite you to look around Avon House at any time to see for yourself what the home has to offer.
