Director of Hillside, Richard Clifford, has lived in the local area with his family for many years. Since acquiring the Hillside and Greenhill properties from BHP Billiton in 1998, it has been Richard’s dream to use the prestigious historical residences to serve families in the Illawarra region for generations to come. Through careful restoration of the heritage buildings and gardens and the addition of new wings, Richard and his business partner Rob Danby have succeeded in creating two neighbouring aged care homes of an exceptional calibre.

Responsible for the day-to-day running of Hillside is the Tulich family – a family business synonymous with exceptional care and superior lifestyles. They currently run some of the most prestigious retirement villages and aged care homes along the east coast.

Together, Richard, Rob, Maurice, Bianca and the rest of the team extend the warmest welcome to Hillside – to your family from ours.

Our values, vision and mission

At Hillside we value:
• The important role of family, friends and carers
• Integrity and honesty in all relationships
• Compassion and respect for individuals
• Our staff and their dependents
• The history and heritage of the individual and the environment

It is our vision to provide exemplary care and accommodation services and our mission to provide premier health care to older Australians in the Illawarra.

Richard Clifford

Richard is well known in the Illawarra area as a successful businessman with a strong commitment to the local community – through both business and sporting enterprises. It is thanks to Richard’s vision that Hillside and Greenhill Manor have been preserved and now offer exquisite living environments for local seniors.

Rob Danby

Rob and his family have run a timber trading business in Kiama since the early 1970s – and have always been supporters of local community organisations and charities. Rob’s extensive construction experience has been invaluable in the transformation of the Greenhill Estate into a premier aged care community.

Maurice Tulich

Maurice formed Tulich Family Communities in 1995 with Chris Mann, fueled by a passion to provide retirement and aged care communities for the most discerning residents. The company now runs a number of developments in South Western Sydney and regional NSW. Maurice has also served as a State and National Director of the Retirement Villages Association.

Bianca Tulich

Bianca has 20 years’ experience in a broad range of financial and management roles. She now specialises in the development, management, marketing and operations of retirement villages, residential aged care homes and community care initiatives.

David Jones

Like Rob, David’s family has worked in the local timber industry for over three generations and, prior to his retirement, David was a director of a successful timber and building supply company. David has been a member of the Lions for more than thirty years and has served as club president.

Alex Pupovac

Pupovac Constructions have extensive experience in residential, commercial and aged care development construction. In fact, Alex’s team was behind the redevelopment and renovation of Hillside and Greenhill, helping these historically significant residences to reclaim their iconic status.
