About Sovereign Lodge

Sovereign Lodge is run by a team of highly experienced staff who are available to meet your loved ones’ needs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We believe the best way to accommodate these needs is by having a person-centred approach. Our stable core staff team know the home well and genuinely care about what is best for the residents.

The home offers plenty of support to residents and their families. We build trusting relationships with local authorities and are well known within the local area for our continuity of healthcare. We pride ourselves on maintaining a strong level of communication with families.

Activities and entertainment

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Sovereign Lodge. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.

We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.

Some of our regular activities include:

  • Martial arts
  • Music
  • Chair based exercises
  • Yoga
  • Arts and crafts
  • Schools and nursery visits
  • Food theme nights
  • Gardening
  • Flower arranging
  • Pet visits
  • Reminiscence sessions
  • Pampering sessions

Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want. Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.

We try to make every mealtime an experience for our residents as it is what they look forward to and it is a time for them to interact with each other and the staff, Every time we create a new menu, a residents’ meeting is held with the chef and team present so that residents can be involved in new menu choices. All our food is homemade and centres around the senses – tastes, smells and sights.

Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.


Sovereign Lodge is situated in the resort town of Eastbourne on the southwest coast. It is easily accessible by road, with ample car parking, on a main bus route and within close walking distance of the railway station and local shops.
Visitors to the town centre can enjoy the newly refurbished shopping centre, ‘The Beacon’. Eastbourne is also renowned for its beautiful carpet gardens which are located on the seafront. Accessible via bus is the notorious Beachy Head which has stunning views, and there are several other stunning drives to enjoy along the beautiful coastline.

Health and wellness

The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.


Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.

Our accommodation

Arranged over three floors, our 64 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home. Our rooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.

Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.

Our in-house hairdressing salon provides the perfect sanctuary to keep our residents feeling their best, whilst our gardens offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from taking exercise to drinking tea.

      Terms and Conditions

      If you will be funding your stay privately, please click here to view our Resident Contract of Admission for Self-Funders.

      If a Local Authority may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a Local Authority Funded Stay.

      Your Local Authority might locate/suggest a care home that is/your Local Authority believes is suitable to meet your care and support needs, that is of a lower cost than our required weekly fee. In this circumstance the Local Authority is unlikely to agree to fully fund your stay if you choose to select our care home instead of the less expensive establishment it has sourced for/suggested to you. In this event, private ‘top-up’ payments will be necessary in order to address the shortfall between our weekly fee and the weekly fee funding available from/offered by your Local Authority.

      An additional top-up payment will almost certainly be required if you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home and your Local Authority is only prepared to pay for a standard room. If you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home, the additional cost for that non-standard room will have to be met by top-up payments.

      Owing to the fact that your financial means will have been assessed by your Local Authority, it is very likely that the Local Authority will require private top-up payments to be made by a third party from their own funds. Although the Guidance to the Care Act 2014 states that a Local Authority ought itself collect top-up payments, some require us to collect such payments on their behalf. Should the Local Authority require us to collect top-up payments, we would issue the third party who is to fund the top-up with a contractual agreement for their review and signature.

      If a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a CCG Funded Stay.
