Admissions Process

How we work and the process


It is a requirement of our charity status that our Residents must have a link with the Chichester Area; this could be through themselves living there or through a close relative living in that area.  


If you are interested in either yourself or a relative becoming a resident at Donnington House then we ask that you telephone to arrange for a look around the home with either the Matron/Manager or the Deputy Manager.  We also ask that you look around at least two other homes so that you can compare them with Donnington House and be able to make a more informed decision as to whether our home is right for you.


If you decide that Donnington House is right for you then we will take some details and start the admissions process.  


We may have a small waiting list which we would advise you of when you first contact us.  


Once a room is available, we will contact you to confirm that you still want it and then one of our senior sisters will visit the resident to make an assessment of their needs ahead of them joining us.


Following the assessment, we would look to move the new Resident in on a mutually convenient day; they will initially stay with us on a four week trial period to ensure that they are happy with the home and how we do things, before becoming a permanent Resident.
