Darlington Court

Trusted to care in Littlehampton


Darlington Court

Welcome to Darlington Court

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.

Life at our home

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.

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.

What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Darlington Court care home.

Thank you for the great care and compassion you have provided to my mother. My mother often spoke about your staff and how helpful, friendly and compassionate they all were and I can only echo those comments. It was clear that, whenever I spoke with your staff (whatever area they worked in), they always had the care and welfare of your residents highest in their minds.

Alan. S (son of resident), September 2021

To all of the staff at Darlington Court. I just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after my mum and for your support you have offered to me. Mum really loved doing different activities and chatting to so many of you. I am grateful that she got to have such enjoyment at the home.

Helene. H (daughter of resident), August 2021

To all of the caring and wonderful people, thank you for your loving and gentle care given to my dearest friend Joy, who I have known for a good number of years. She was always speaking well of everyone at the home.

Friend of Resident, August 2021

To all the carers and staff at Darlington Court, a huge thank you for taking such good care of mum, we couldn’t have asked for more. Love and thanks to you all.

Family of Resident, August 2021

My mother is happy here. Last time she was in hospital she decided to move into a nursing home. She found it strange at first but after 3 weeks she settled in. Everyone is very friendly. They kept me informed when she had Covid tests or any other problems.
