It was about 25 years ago that Dr. Shafik Sachedina established Sussex Healthcare along with a business partner. He is the joint chairman of this company which provides homes and services primarily to older people but also those who require neurological care. They have experts in their homes who have years of training and experience working with people who have dementia, for instance. Residents of these homes have a lot of opportunities to do things such as cooking, gardening, handicrafts, card games, art therapy, and more. They can also stay physically active by being driven to Sussex Healthcare’s newly built gym.
Dr. Shafik Sachedina says that they don’t limit themselves to just conventional care at Sussex Healthcare. They do have physiotherapists as well as speech therapists in their homes that help those with neurological care, in addition to other professional staff. However, they also do alternative therapies which range from aromatherapy to reflexology. The people in their homes also have access to both hydrotherapy pools as well as spas.
In addition to their homes. Dr. Shafik Sachedina says his company also owns and operates SHC Audiology. This company provides hearing services and aids to those who are hard of hearing. They offer these services and products through a partnership with the National Health Service in order to provide the highest quality hearing aids available.
