Hillside Lodge

Mum lived at Hillside for almost two years and we, her family, could not have been happier with the care and love with which she was looked after. The staff were always kind and gentle with her. They would sit or bend to her level to speak to her, never standing over her. They would hold her hand, touch her shoulder, or stroke her hair whilst chatting with her. The very elderly have often lost many of their closest people and for many close communication and a caring touch is a thing of the past. The food, whilst Mum could manage it, was excellent, and when she began to have problems with eating, a member of staff was always with her making her food suitable and helping her with it. The entertainment provided was popular with Mum, even when she got frailer and quieter. If there was singing on offer she would liven up and sing along as though she was still in her heyday! Her visitors were always welcomed by name and offered tea or coffee and chats about Mum's condition. Staff were always about so residents always knew that they were part of a home and family with comings and goings. Communication with the family was excellent and if there was ever an issue with Mum's health, the staff would be on the phone immediately to let us know and to reassure us that they could deal with whatever had occurred. It all meant that for Mum's last two years we could have full confidence in her happiness and safety and knew that all her needs were being met in the best possible way. Shaw Healthcare and Hillside staff are to be congratulated.

I cannot recommend Hillside Lodge highly enough.We were very worried when Lily had to leave her home and move away from Fernhurst, but she is so happy and healthy now.She is really being looked after and feels like she belongs. I think now she realises just how lonely she was at home on her own as now she is part of a big family.The staff are so very caring and never miss anything.If a resident wants a drink or something to eat or the bathroom they are ready to spring into action. At the same time if everyone is taken care of they are more than happy to sit and chat with residents or just sit and hold hands if someone is unwell. This place gets five stars,ten out of ten,A*** and any other recommendation I can give .Thank you Hillside Lodge for making our beloved Lily happy and feel valued again instead of a faceless person who was in the way!!
