About Haviland House

Haviland House is a unique care home devoted to helping support people to live well with dementia through all stages of their journey. Working with external consultants we are working towards becoming the first 'Butterfly' accredited dementia care home in Worthing.

Our approach is all about making Haviland House a home for life, and making it a calming and comfortable environment for our residents which also means that that staff no longer wear uniforms or adhere to strict routines. 

Our staff are trained to nurture people within this safe and comfortable home. We remove the feelings of 'us and them' to create a family home environment, focusing on quality relationships between 'family members'.

Our commitment is to provide a person centred approach and therefore minimising neutral care. We never take a ‘one size fits all’ approach, and provide care in a way that values each individual’s likes and dislikes.
