Rooms and Accommodation
Hillcrest House was purpose built as a Nursing Home in 1975 and a new building, ‘The Lodge’, was added in 2018. Our facilities have been specifically designed, updated and developed to provide the best care and to enable residents to enjoy their lifestyle.
The nursing home is equipped with the additional facility of a treatment room including a hydrotherapy bath/spa which enables us to offer specialist therapy for residents who require holistic, therapeutic intervention and relaxation.
"The best-led nursing home I have ever been to. I cannot praise it highly enough for short or long-term care. It’s a very special place."
The nursing home comprises 36 single and 11 double bedrooms. Most of the rooms are fully en-suite and all rooms, bedrooms and common areas are wheelchair accessible.
The bedrooms are fully and attractively furnished and we re-decorate them at least once a year. In order to make them feel homely and familiar, residents are encouraged to bring some personal effects for their rooms when they move into Hillcrest.
There are eight lounges and sitting rooms across the two buildings with comfortable chairs for sitting and relaxing during the day and evenings. The main lounges are where most residents choose to sit during the day to mix and chat with fellow residents, or watch television or play board games and cards. Smaller lounges are quieter and ideal for watching a favourite television programme or sporting event, listen to the radio or read.
Each building has an outdoor, secluded courtyard and patio, also furnished with comfortable seating and parasols, potted plants and hanging baskets which make them ideal for making the most of periods of fine weather.
Each of our two buildings has its own dining room where residents can enjoy freshly prepared meals. The menus are posted weekly and are regularly updated to add variety and reflect the availability of seasonal fresh produce. Personal dietary requirements and preferences are willingly catered for and drinks and snacks are available at any time of the day or night.
The home has an oratory and residents regularly use it for quiet prayer and reflection. Mass is celebrated at the home on a regular basis by our visiting chaplain.
There are two library/reading rooms containing our selection of books from which residents can choose for their reading pleasure.
"I’ve worked for seven years at Hillcrest. Residents in this wonderful facility are treated by management and staff as if they're their own parents."
