Wide shot of carer and patient

Mais House

Mais House in East Sussex is one of The Royal British Legion’s Care Homes. Like every one of the Legion's Care Homes, we are exclusive to ex-Service people and their dependents.

Located in the coastal town of Bexhill-on-Sea, close to the popular resorts of Eastbourne and Brighton, our aim at Mais House is to help each resident get the most out of life, whether that is by providing round-the-clock care or helping them to live more independently. It's somewhere our residents can feel is their real home, for as long as they are with us.
