The home is a large twinned terraced house situated in the heart of Hove within metres of Hove Town Hall.

Accommodations are available in 25 single rooms accross 5 floors.

The home has a selection of communal areas both inside and outside.

This allows the service users have a choice of place to sit quietly, have a relaxing cup of tea and a smoke, meet with family and friends or be actively engaged with other people who use the service.

We promote independence and we recognise that privacy is important. You will have your own room, some with en-suite facilities.

You are encouraged to bring your own belongings and to decorate and personalise your room to your own taste and satisfaction. The communal areas are comfortable and homely. A good size patio garden is provided for your enjoyment.


The home is run by an experienced Manager, who is supported by the company proprietors who are registered mental health nurses with a great deal of experience delivering services to people with mental health difficulties.

Support and care is delivered by a team of support workers.

An RMN is always available for advice and support. There is always support staff available both day and night. The level of staffing varies according to time of day, the needs of each service user and the activities being organised.

The support team is complimented by other staff, who include chefs, cleaners, administrative staff, sessional workers (A social inclusion worker and activities co-ordinator) and maintenance personnel.

All staff are carefully selected and undergo a Criminal Records Bureau check before beginning work. All staff participate in regular supervision and training

Food and Drink

Our chef prepares the main meals. A range of menu options is available and special diets can be catered for. Through our regular residents' meetings we encourage all service users to get involved in planning the menu. So please give us your ideas!

Drinks are available throughout the day but we still like to have a morning coffee break and afternoon tea. These are fixed points in the day and opportunities for service users and staff to meet and socialise. And of course you don't have to like tea and coffee as other drinks are available!

You will be supported to pursue education, training, employment or volunteering as this can aid recovery in a significant way.

If required, it may be possible to have hot drink making facilities in your own room. Please ask staff for details.


Domestic staff are employed to keep Davigdor Lodge clean.

However, we believe that a lot of self satisfaction and pride can be derived from keeping your own private space clean and tidy.

Staff will help you achieve this independence by helping you according to your wishes and your abilities.

To what extent the staff support you to clean your room, how much you do for yourself and what support you receive will be agreed as part of your individual support and recovery plan.


The home has a laundry room with washing machines, tumble dryers and ironing facilities. All service users are encouraged to participate in doing their own laundry but assistance is available from support workers according to need.


The building is protected by an automatic fire detection system, which is tested regularly. Notices detailing the actions to be taken in the event of a fire are posted on all floors.

For your own safety, you are expected to participate in periodic fire drills and to obey the instructions of the staff if an evacuation becomes necessary.

Experience suggests that smoking presents a significant risk. For your safety and that of others, you are asked to respect the smoking policy.


Due to the serious health implications, smoking is strongly discouraged.

Service users will not be allowed to smoke in their rooms.

All Service users will be supported to participate in a smoking cessation groups at the local practice.
