Trusted to care in Littlehampton
Darlington Court is a welcoming care home, just three miles from the seaside town of Littlehampton in West Sussex.
Our friendly, experienced team provides residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also offer sensitive end of life care.
We have a lovely large, secure and well-maintained garden which includes a patio and lawns. On warmer days it’s a perfect place for residents to enjoy the sunshine. They're very welcome to help us with weeding and planting if they wish to.
We get to know each resident as an individual, so that we can tailor their care to their exact needs. Residents are at the heart of their care, making decisions about the care they receive and how they want to spend their day. Regular residents' and relatives' meetings ensure that the home is exactly how they'd like it to be.
There's so much happening at Darlington Court. One day we might have a dog agility class, the next day Elvis might be here to entertain us! There's always a resident's birthday to celebrate, and we have lots of interesting and creative activities every day. Residents enjoy getting out and about too - to the coast, to the shops, or to the pub for a drink or some lunch.
The Darlington Court team provides a wide range of care for older people, giving you the peace of mind that your loved one can stay here, even if their needs change in future.Read more

The dedicated and experienced team at Darlington Court will provide your loved one with care that is completely tailored to their individual needs and wishes.
Being a home manager is a bit like being an orchestra conductor. You need to lead and support your team, trusting them to work together. There’s a lot happening at the same time, and when it works well, it’s amazing. I’m passionate about quality in care, so seeing success fuels me and drives me on further.Nikki BurkeHome Manager
