Welcome to Claydon House

Claydon House Care Home, is situated at the end of a quiet residential crescent in the heart of the town of Lewes in East Sussex, just north of Brighton.

Life in Lewes is a slower pace, and all our residents are treated as family. We are often told that we make residents and visitors feel like family and that they feel like they have always been here.

We strive to go the extra mile for everyone we care for, encouraging families to join in our activities along with their loved ones, which is always enjoyable for everyone involved.

At Claydon House, we believe that even a very simple act can be the most important one to a resident.

What does care from the heart mean to the team at Claydon House?
“Caring from the heart means that we get to know our residents and families and deliver the care they need and want. Treating all residents as if they are the only ones that matter.”

Meet the Manager

“I enjoy the huge variety of people I work with daily – relatives, residents, staff and professional bodies. My biggest achievement is ensuring residents receive the care they need and want.”

My name is Vanessa Redford and I am the Home Manager here at Claydon House. I have worked in care for over 30 years, primarily with the young and the elderly. I started my career working with young adults with learning difficulties and have now moved into care homes for older people. It is my responsibility to ensure residents are safe and well cared for in a person-centred manner. That staff adhere to policies and procedures and work in a safe environment. I believe everyone should be treated as an individual. I enjoy the huge variety of people I work with daily – relatives, residents, staff and professional bodies. My biggest achievement is ensuring residents receive the care they need and want.

Claydon House Home Manager - Vanessa RedfordI have a few hobbies that I enjoy. I love to read and to cook. I also love to travel and go on lovely walks. There is a lot of green countryside and sea all a short distance from the home. I have lived locally on and off for the past 40 years, so know the area very well. I did spend two years living in Egypt previously, which was an amazing experience, but nothing beats the picturesque countryside of home. We’ve got a lovely setting here at Claydon House. Located at the end of a quiet residential crescent in the heart of the town of Lewes, East Sussex, our charming Victorian town residence has been converted to offer modern facilities, but retains its period character. I would be delighted to show visitors our beautiful home.
