Our Activities program is based on the individual, we don't often have very large group activities as some of
the most recent research suggests that people living with dementia simply don't take to it, that doesn't
mean that we never have them, from time to time we are able to organise large group outings to the beach
or to a pantomime or play for example, and these types of trips do work well. We also encourage regular
trips in small numbers on shopping trips, trips to the hair dressers and even just to go out for a drive and
visit the local garden centre for a coffee. Other activities include things like : Click on each one for more info

In recent months our Activities Coordinator has been developing an app for our residents. it Can be used
on any device which accesses the internet as it uses a web browser for it to work, this may not be the
conventional way to develop and app for modern technology but doing it this way we have found we can,
by not connecting to the internet avoid things like advertisements and other popup for interfering with
the residence experience. Please click here to find out more about our app and see some screen
shots of its pages.
'They can't know until they have been there what it is like to be old. They say, "Well you have had your innings". It's the other way round ... We have got over the rough, unpleasant stuff... and now it is our chance... You can't, until you are old yourself, see how precious every day is. Now is the time to enjoy yourself.'Mrs. A
'You don't think to yourself, "I'm getting older" and in a way, you want to be the way you were. But I also want people to know that there is change taking place - but that I can still be part of things. There needs to be some acknowledgement that we are getting old but that, at the same time, we are not past it.'Mrs T
Triple Trees is a home from home establishment with the emphasis being on HOME. With our highly motivated team of careers, housekeeping, Kitchen and management staff we all work as one to provide that home from home atmosphere in the home. Our ethos is based around the maintenance and promotion of independence, always protecting our residents dignity, privacy and freedom. We encourage our residents to keep their own GP should they wish, though we do have a local GP Practice which we highly recommend as this does help keep all medical records up to date and in one place, we also like the fact that our visiting GP does make a regular visit (ward round) and this helps the GP get to know our residents on a one to one basis.
We are situated in Burgess Hill which is a typical small countryside town in the heart of West Sussex, 6 miles north of Brighton, Burgess Hill is easily found off the A23 either from London or Brighton area.
