Established in 1991, Avon House was one of the first care homes in the Worthing area to specialise in dementia care. Cobham Care has owned and run Avon House for more than 15 years in which time it has developed into a centre of excellence providing care and support for residents with all types and characteristics of dementia and other cognitive conditions including Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Schizophrenia.

We embrace all of the new therapies that are being developed in the treatment of dementia to provide cutting-edge care. Our approach to delivering person-centred care is based upon Dementia Care Mapping which is an established method that is recognised by the National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence.

Avon House provides residents with specialist care in a warm family atmosphere of love and inclusiveness. We gently encourage our residents to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible.

The building & facilities

A home full of character

All 25 of our bedrooms are situated on the ground and first floor of this light and airy Edwardian house, which sits on a leafy, residential road. The house has been sympathetically adapted to retain many period characteristics whilst providing vital modern features such as a lift and wheelchair ramps. The gardens are overlooked by a lounge and dining room that provide space for residents to socialise, and the property backs onto a local park. The Home is equipped with assisted-grade facilities and well-considered, communal social spaces. Avon House is structured to enable us to develop a family atmosphere of inclusiveness and is comfortably furnished to a high standard.

“I would definitely recommend Avon House to friends and family, excellent quality of care. The environment is comfortable, clean and homely. I have always been kept very well informed about every aspect of Mum's care. The staff are always caring, supportive and sympathetic. Thanks for caring for our Mum so well and for your continuing support and excellent care.”


“I feel so lucky that my mum is at Avon House. The staff and management always show care and consideration to the residents and treat them with respect. I feel that mum is safe and well looked after and as happy as she can be. I am always made to feel welcome when I visit Avon House to see mum and am kept up to date with any health issues that may arise. Knowing mum is in such a caring, clean and happy environment gives me real peace of mind.”

“Mum always looks clean and at her best. We think the staff are all great, everything is explained fully whenever we need to know anything. Everything at the home is kept nice and clean and it is very welcoming. We are so glad Mum can spend her last years at Avon House.”
