Care for Veterans (formerly The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home) was founded in 1919 to provide care and rehabilitation to those returning from the First World War with life-changing disabilities.
Since that time we have provided long-term nursing care, short-term respite stays, rehabilitation and award-winning end of life care to those who have served our country. We specialise in caring for veterans with acquired brain injury and degenerative neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease and our ethos is to give our veterans the very best quality of life in spite of their disability.
Our rehabilitation includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, speech and language therapy and social and recreational activities as well as a wheelchair clinic and chaplaincy service, all delivered from our 60-bed facility in Worthing, West Sussex.
We receive no regular government funding and have to raise £1.9 million each year so we are endebted to Trinity House for their generous and continued support for which we are most grateful.
