Types of care

Here at Hurstwood, we value our friends and relatives as much as the residents. These very important people are vital to helping us provide the best person centred care we can. Some residents with memory loss cannot tell us their preferences and wishes very easily, so we are always grateful to the family and friends of Hurstwood who can help us to build life stories of the individuals we care for. This information assists us to go that extra mile and give residents and their loved ones the highly professional and sought after care they deserve.

We have an excellent catering team who will cook home cooked meals every day and cater for all dietary requirements; nothing is ever too much bother for our friendly team. Our activities team provide daily entertainment, from having a knit and natter afternoon, to bringing choirs and magicians in for live entertainment! We are a strong, focused group of caring individuals and together we make Hurstwood a continuing success. We can't wait for you to be part of this.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Kirsty Heaver

Kirsty Heaver

General Manager

Hi, my name is Kirsty and I am the General Manager here at Hurstwood View. Welcome to our website!

I began my career in the care industry in 1997, working in a small private care home for 17 years, which I enjoyed every day. I provided individualised care, support, social interaction, comfort & compassion to residents.

In 2003, I decided to study Nursing at Brighton University, as it had been my ambition since an early age. I continued to work at the care home during evenings & weekends, throughout my training, and received my nursing qualification in 2006. Becoming a nurse gave me such fulfillment, along with a great responsibility, which made me extremely proud about what I do.

I joined Hurstwood View in 2012 – and that is where my journey at Barchester began.

I love to spend time with my family & friends and I also enjoy travelling. I played football for 15 years in a woman’s team, but I’ve hung the boots up now!
