About us

A drone view of the Bill House

The Bill House is part of Park Group, which was founded by Lawrence and Diane Alexander more than 35 years ago. Lawrence and Diane met through nursing before becoming husband and wife and deciding to start a business based on their passion for care. As a result, care and nursing have been built into the fabric of the company since the very start, along with a special focus on individuals with dementia. Over the following decades, they built Park Group into a nationally-recognised company, managing homes all over the south of England, with a reputation for excellence, care and consideration.

The Bill House

Our home

The Bill House is Park Group’s jewel in the crown, a state-of-the-art south coast care home built within a magnificent Arts & Crafts property overlooking the English Channel.. Located in Selsey, the Bill House is amongst the best care homes in West Sussex.

The Bill House has undergone a multi-million pound renovation, with a focus on wellbeing and quality of life, using the knowledge and expertise Park Group has built up over more than three decades in care. Our south coast care home features state of the art facilities, idyllic surroundings, and tranquil gardens, creating a peaceful haven for all our residents.

We take pride in the exceptional care we provide, and are dedicated to working with our residents and their families to ensure our care is tailored to the needs of individual residents, providing peace of mind for all.

    Meet the team

    Park Group is a family business through and through. As Lawrence and Diane reached the end of their careers, they handed over day-to-day operations to their sons, Oliver, Adam and Sven, who grew-up seeing first-hand the devotion and attention to detail needed to provide exceptional care. In this new phase, the company is focusing on a handful of extraordinary, one-of-a-kind properties, including The Bill House.

    Community

    At The Bill House we want every resident – and their families – to feel safe in the knowledge that they have found a home away from home. Our attention to detail is a primary reason why we are recognised as one of the best care homes in West Sussex. We know how vital a sense of community is to individuals in their later years, especially those living with dementia.

    Chess Club at The Bill House

    This is why we have developed a full range of activities, games and entertainment for our residents, as well as a specially designed therapeutic garden and magnificent sea views across the south coast. Our highly trained, compassionate staff work to ensure that residents feel safe, nurtured and comfortable around the clock.
