Welcome to Pinewood Nursing Home

Pinewood is an independent nursing home, situated in the village of Chidham 4 miles from Chichester and 4 miles from Emsworth and Havant. Pinewood is a spacious comfortable residence standing in 2.8 acres of West Sussex countryside, providing 24 hour personalised care to 30 residents in our newly refurbished and extended home offering a choice of accommodation and facilities.

The house has all the superior comforts whilst offering a homely friendly environment where our residents can continue to enjoy their individual way of life, in a serene and caring atmosphere, maintaining independence and dignity.


The large TV lounge overlooks the patio and lawn, and the elegant dining room provides a delightful setting in which to enjoy the high standard of cuisine, whilst the spacious conservatory and quiet lounge provides a tranquil environment.

Highly Qualified and Dedicated Team

Pinewood employs a highly qualified, experienced and dedicated team of staff who work closely with residents to ensure a continuously high standard of person-centred care. The focus is on individual needs with an emphasis on choice. Each resident will have a named nurse. Additionally, residents have access to visiting physiotherapists, chiropodists, dentist, optician and hairdressers.

A Message from our Manager

"We were delighted to achieve a ‘good’ rating in our recent CQC inspection and we thank all our staff for helping us to maintain consistently high standards of care. We place great importance at Pinewood on staff training and actively encourage staff members to attend courses as part of their ongoing personal development. For those healthcare assistants without NVQs, we offer support in attaining the Care Certificate.

We are committed to offering an ‘open door’ policy at Pinewood and hope that residents and family members will feel confident to approach me or any of my nurse team at any time if there are any problems or concerns.

We are committed to ensuring that the care received at Pinewood is based on empathy, respect and dignity and we fully endorse the Dignity core principles which value the uniqueness of every individual. Whilst all our staff adhere to these principles, we are happy to have designated staff members acting as Dignity Champions in an overseeing role.

We place great importance on meaningful activity and encourage participation in our weekly programme of entertainment and activities wherever possible. We have a number of regular volunteers and attend community events wherever possible. We also offer one to one time, designed to suit personal interests and preferences.

We are proud of our home and the care that we offer. Prospective residents and family members are free to come and visit us at any time - no appointment is necessary."

"I wanted to write and express my thanks for the lovely care that you have shown to my Grandma Kate in the time that she has lived with you. After she moved in she said to me within about 2 weeks, ‘This is my home now’, which I thought was such a great thing. You gave her the opportunity to take part in a whole load of activities which she had lost as she became more isolated and less able at home. I loved that our roles had changed and that instead of visiting to try and entertain her and bring her news, she could now bring me up to date with her activities, news and gossip! So thank you for making her last few years really happy."  Elaine F 11/12/15
