With Augustinian Care
Augustinian Care provides care with nursing for older people with frailty and those with mental health problems in Sussex. Our aim is to provide unique high quality care, enabling individuals to lead valued and fulfilled lives with freedom to make choices.
We always aim to foster an open and positive relationship through both respect and understanding where our Sisters and staff are empowered to deliver life-giving structures.
The Augustinian Order
The Augustinian Order was founded in 1842 in Bruges, Belgium by Reverend Canon Peter John Maes who devoted his life to the care of the mentally ill. The Sisters of St. Augustine was re-formed in 1866 when it established its first home, St. George's Retreat in Burgess Hill, Sussex, principally to care for the mentally and physically ill. The Sisters have continued to care for those that need it ever since.
Gold Standards Framework
Both our homes hold the platinum award for the Gold Standards Framework. The teams have been reaccredited with this award in 2022. With (the help of) GSF we aim to deliver the best end of life care to our residents.
