As part of their ongoing efforts to provide senior adults with the type of physical activity they need to keep their bones and muscles healthy, Sussex Healthcare opened a new gym and fitness center. This agency is known for the leading edge services they provide to older adults who often suffer from neurological conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. The new gym is equipped with everything from free weights to elliptical trainers and underwater treadmills. It even has a full size swimming pool. As with all of their residential care facilities, the new gym and fitness center is staffed with qualified professionals who specialize in physical training and care for seniors.
As an independent service for adult living, Sussex Healthcare has been helping older adults in the United Kingdom’s region of Sussex for more than 25 years. This organization currently operates 20 residential homes located throughout the areas of East and West Sussex. In 2002, Sussex Healthcare obtained accreditation from the U.K.’s Health Quality Service board. By 2005 they had achieved an international standard ISO of 9000:2000 for quality management, which made them the only independent healthcare service in the U.K. to obtain dual accreditation.
As an organization that places a high emphasis on quality patient care, the leaders behind Sussex Healthcare look to hire management personnel who excel in their respective fields. This is evident in the company’s recent addition to their staff with the hiring of their new CEO, Amanda Morgan-Taylor.
