Our story & values

Shirley Eyles is the Registered Manager here at Alfriston Court, with over 40 years of experience in care.

“I really enjoy welcoming residents and their relatives to the home, ensuring a smooth transition into care and then helping them to retain the most independence and choices with support at this time in their lives. Our fantastic staff team works hard to deliver exceptional care, a fabulous menu and a wide range of activities.”

Shirley is supported by our Deputy Manager Anita, who has worked at our home for 5 years as a Registered Nurse.

Please do get in contact if you are considering nursing or residential care – we have so much to offer you and would be delighted to meet you and show you our Home. You will receive a very warm welcome!


Care is ‘what we do’ and it’s why people come to us for help. The care we deliver helps the individual person to live a dignified life and improves their overall health. This is our work and our calling. People receiving our care trust us to get it right for them.


Communication is central to successful caring relationships and to effective team working. Listening is as important as what we say and do. It is essential for “no decision about me without me”. Communication is key, with benefits for those in our care and staff alike.


Competence means all those in caring roles must be able to understand an individual’s health and social needs, and have the expertise, clinical and technical knowledge to deliver effective care and treatments based on research and evidence.


Compassion is how care is given through relationships based on empathy, respect and dignity. It can be described as Intelligent Kindness and is central to how people perceive their care.


Courage enables us to do the right thing for the people we care for, to speak up when we have concerns. It means we have the personal strength and vision to innovate and embrace new ways of working.


Commitment to our residents is the cornerstone of what we do. We need to build on our commitment to improve the care and experience of our residents and to meet the health and social challenges which may be ahead.
