About Hillbeck

The home began its life as a local doctor's home until 1990 when it was extended and converted into the charming care home that it is today. Charing Healthcare was delighted to acquire Hillbeck in December 2002 and undertook an extensive programme to refurbish the home. Since then Hillbeck has had two extension done to it, one in 2009 and another in 2015 both built to a high specification. The home stands in beautiful grounds, which throughout the year is alive with colourful plants and wildlife. There are several large bright lounge areas, which lead out onto secure patio areas where clients can enjoy the panoramic countryside views and the large sensory, which thrives with plant life.

Hillbeck is currently able to provide accommodation and high quality care for sixty residential clients living with dementia. The majority of rooms have en-suite facilities and there are three twin rooms for couples or friends who wish to share. Some of our rooms have views of the grounds whilst others enjoy views of the countryside. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, although clients are welcome to bring in small items of their own furnishings if they so wish.

Along with the main lounge, we have several large bright lounge areas with televisions where residents can enjoy their favourite programmes, participate in activities or simply relax and enjoy the view which overlooks the beautiful grounds. There is ample seating for residents and their visitors. Should clients wish for more privacy, they are welcome to take their visitors to their bedroom.

Clients are encouraged to join in with a wide range of daily activities that include art and craft, weekly films, cookery, bingo, music and movement and therapeutic activities. Outings are periodically arranged for those that are able, for example trips to the seaside and the enjoyment of nearby activities such as a game of cricket or football on the local village green.

Hillbeck is blessed with a wealth of garden space, some of which is used as a large patio area where residents can sit and enjoy the good weather. We have a seperate area where there is a large polly tunnel where residents are encouraged to grow plants and vegetables. 

We offer all our clients 3 meals a day, which are breakfast, lunch and high tea, as well as snacks and refreshments throughout the day. we offer a variety of dishes to choose from our menu each day for each meal. Hillbeck has a seasonal menu, which works on a 4 weekly cycle. All our food is freshly brought in, homemade and nutritionally balanced, which we feel is very important. Our menu's may vary slightly depending on the client's needs/likes. Please feel free to look at our  Summer Menu.

The staff at Hillbeck are professional, competent, dedicated and caring. Care at Hillbeck is delivered in a sensitive and respectful manner and aims to promote the client's ability. The staff are regularly updating their knowledge and caring skills by attending appropriate training courses.

Our hope for people choosing to come to Hillbeck is that it will become their home and not just the place where they live. We strive to provide a high quality of care within a comfortable environment that feels alive. A move into residential care leads to many changes for both the individual and their families and our aim is to make these changes as painless as possible showing that residential care can be an enjoyable and positive experience.
