A magical place
Hillcroft House is a care home specialising in residential and dementia care. Described as a ‘magical’ place by the residents, the home has a lovely atmosphere. It is a busy and lively home where everyone is treated as one big family – whether you’re a staff member, a relative or a resident.
Specialist equipment available
Dietary requirements met
Hillcroft House is situated in the market town of Stowmarket in Suffolk. Originally a school, the house is a Grade II Listed building that dates back over 200 years. The home has been tastefully extended but retains links with the original house to provide modern facilities.
As soon as you step inside the home, there is a warm and friendly feeling. The staff are dedicated to providing the very best care for people living with dementia and they are highly experienced. Landscaped gardens with mature trees and shrubs surround the home, which is regularly visited by local wildfowl.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Hillcroft House. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.
We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.
Some of our regular activities include:
- Entertainer visits
- Dog therapy
- Seated exercises
- Pamper days
- Sing-Along sessions
- Bingo & puzzles
- Coffee mornings
Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.
Two options of food are provided every day and residents always get a choice. We work to a six weekly rolling menu whereby all dietary requirements are met. Residents can be assisted to eat where necessary. Our chef regularly interacts with residents and is always happy to receive new suggestions.
We have a daily food menu, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks and drinks are also served, and sandwiches, biscuits and other refreshments are available at any time of the day.
Our catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Located in the picturesque market town of Stowmarket in Suffolk. The home is situated in a quiet part of the town, yet is still conveniently close to the centre of the town. There are plenty of interesting places for visitors to the area to frequent such as the Museum of East Anglian Life, Needham Lakes, and a number of garden centres and pubs.
The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.
Arranged over two floors, our 42 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All of our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.
Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.
Our beautiful, landscaped gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
