At Hillside, we put the comfort and happiness of our residents first at all times. Our team not only provides the very best in care, housekeeping and nutrition, but go out of their way to establish personal relationships with each and every resident.

Social activities

Residents at Hillside often remark on the wonderful sense of community and belonging they feel here. This is thanks in part to our many social activities and outings which help residents to make new connections and stay socially active.

As well as Pilates and gentle exercise classes, we have quizzes, bingo and movie nights and regular outings to local shops or concerts. There are a number of groups to join too including the walking club and the Hillside Harmonies choir.

Dining and nutrition

The Hillside chef and the on-site catering team provide a daily a la carte menu, offering a selection of well-balanced and nutritious meals. Meals can be enjoyed with friends in one of four beautiful dining rooms or in the comfort of your own apartment. Tea, coffee and biscuits are always available.

Maintaining contact with family and friends is a high priority at Hillside, so feel free to invite them to enjoy lunch at Ginger Café or to celebrate special occasions in the prestigious Chaplin private dining room.
