Hillbrow House is a lovely Home with a very happy atmosphere. We provide quality care in homely surroundings and encourage everyone to be as independent as possible within a safe environment.

All rooms are individually decorated and everyone is encouraged to personalize their room by bringing pictures, photographs and small items of furniture.

The award-winning garden is peaceful and sheltered. Raised beds enable residents to grow their own vegetables and flowers.

The Care team are trained to provide Resident-centred care that reflect the needs of each individual resident. Your Care Plans are reviewed monthly, or more frequently if necessary, and any changes in your needs are assessed and passed on to the Care team for immediate implementation.

For this reason fees are based on the assessed care needs of each resident. In this way Hillbrow provides a highly personalized service with fees that accurately reflect the dependency of each individual. The fee range shown on this website is indicative only and can only be confirmed following a complete "Pre-assessment" review which is carried out with the client who has expressed an interest in coming to Hillbrow.

For those who live alone we have a Lunch Club. Those who attend enjoy eating with the residents who find it stimulating to talk about what is going on in Crediton. In addition Day Care is available for those who live at home and yet enjoy socializing and joining in the daily activities program, having a bath or, simply sitting quietly in the garden or one of our lovely lounges.

Please be aware that whilst all recommendations on this site are very encouraging in their praise for Hillbrow, recommendations that are over two years old are deleted from the website.

Hillbrow House

My mother was a resident at Hillbrow for 4 years until her recent death. During that time she was always cared for in a professional yet friendly manner. End of life care was exemplary. At all times the family was made welcome. I particularity enjoyed sharing a weekly lunch with residents. There was a seamless line linking the family and home's care. This made all the difference to a lady who ''never wanted to go home'' but when circumstances made it necessary could then say it felt like a ''home from home''. Hillbrow is always aspiring to improve its service under the attentive eye of its management team which invites and listens to the views of others. I unreservedly recommend this home and its care.
