Review of Hillfield Nursing Home on Thursday 29 May 2014 by David Walker (Son of resident)

My mother was here for 3 years before she died in April 2014 aged 94. Although before the end her dementia prevented her from expressing herself, I always felt that she was well cared for by genuinely caring staff. I visited her 3 or 4 times a week and was always welcomed by the staff and updated as to her condition.
