Hawkinge House provides accommodation for 184 residents with significant care needs in studio and one bedroom suites.

The scheme is divided into social groups for physical frailty and various types of dementia/mental illness. Full 24 hour nursing care is available in-house so that most residents can have a home for life within the scheme. Residents’ spouses can also be accommodated, to allow couples to stay together even when one develops the need for on-going care.

One of the philosophies at the heart of Hawkinge House is to provide relationship-centred care. As well as fostering and nurturing relationships between residents, their family and friends and the healthcare professionals who work in and visit the home, a community day centre will be used to nurture relationships between the residents and local villagers.
