Review of Hillcrest

Grateful for excellent care
My mother-in-law was in Hillcrest from January 2014 to her death in September 2014. The care she received was exemplary, from all the Care staff, the Activities lady, and not forgetting the chefs. We visited at random times of day, always warmly welcomed by staff, and were impressed with everything we saw - all residents were treated with respect and attention to detail. My M-I-L required a great deal of care towards the end, always provided in a timely, considerate and professional manner. She told us, and other visitors, that she was 'very happy' in the Home; when asked if she had made friends she said 'yes, all the staff'! I've answered 'excellent' to all the questions below; the only one I might wish to expand on is 'Rooms': most of the rooms I saw are fairly small, but it is possible to bring own furniture and to put as many pictures on the walls as desired. Access is available to relatives at all times of day though there is a polite notice about avoiding mealtimes if possible. The manager and all staff are easily accessible for questions, comments and information.

Review of Hillcrest

Great staff, fantastic food, home from home, excellent interpersonal relationships with residents. This is not a flashy corporately run home but, if you are looking for a home where your parent will be safe and cared for, this is it. Staff have managed the transition from independent living to the care home very well and I am confident my mum is in good hands.

The staff are very friendly and caring. My mum looks so much better since she came here. She is treated like royalty, she couldn't be better looked after. She loves living here. The food is excellent and the activities are brilliant. I would strongly recommend anyone here who is looking for care.

Review of Hillcrest

It combines medical expertise with compassion and respect. All care staff do their best to meet the needs of each resident. Dietary needs are met. A regular meeting of service users is held where residents have the opportunity to express any concerns or compliments which are acted upon immediately.

Review of Hillcrest

To share my experience with potential users of the care home. Hillcrest has looked after my mum for the last 5 years, she has dementia. They have been unfailing in their care for her. They are responsive to any family concerns and proactive in ensuring medical care if it has been necessary. The team at Hillcrest have created a warm, friendly secure environment. My mum is very happy there.
