In April 2013 Hillbrow House received their Care Quality Commission Inspection Report and are happy announce that they have been assessed as providing a high quality service for Residents in all areas. They are very proud of this!

Hillbrow House is a lovely Home with, we are told, a very happy atmosphere. Hillbrow provides quality care in homely surroundings. 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 our residents to grow their own vegetables and flowers.

The Care team are trained to provide a Resident-centred care service that reflect the care needs of each individual Resident. 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.

If you would like more information please ask for a leaflet or their 30 page Resident's Guide. You are very welcome to call in at any time to chat about your needs over a cup of tea or fresh coffee. The Lunch Club is open to anyone who would like to spend an hour or a day getting to know the team.

Day Care is provided 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.

Their last CQC review (as 0f 2013) concluded that they are providing an excellent quality of care.

Review of Hillbrow House on Wednesday 4 September 2013 by Margaret Gibson (Daughter of deceased resident)

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.

Review of Hillbrow House on Thursday 22 November 2012 by Noel Parry (Son-in-law of resident)

My mother-in-law was there, with her own attractive room for four years from October 2008, dying there on October 30 this year six months after her 100th birthday. She was invariably treated with love and consideration. Almost all of the time she was wheelchair confined, but all sorts of arts and crafts were arranged and she produced all sorts of attractive gifts for her great grandchildren. The food was very good, entertainments and trips provided, weekly Christian mini services offered and two splendid 100th birthday parties provided. I could not recommend it too highly.

Review of Hillbrow House on Thursday 17 May 2012 by Stella D (Daughter of Resident)

I would like to thank you and your team of carers for looking after Mum so well over the past four and a half years, she was happy with you all, and it was home to her. She enjoyed her trips out when she was able to go in the mini-bus, also she very much enjoyed the church services, art classes, Norma’s entertainment and other activities. Thank you for letting us celebrate Mum's birthdays in the sun lounge when she was unable to be taken out in the car. She is now at peace out of pain and suffering.
