We, and our residents, would love to meet sociable, fun, reliable and patient people who can share their skills with our attendees.

Mission Statement

Woodlands and Hillbrow were set up as a family care homes. We now have a day centre specialising in dementia and a nursing home called Hill House.  The homes are all run along the same core principle of dignity, respect, courage and caring for people as though they are our own family.

Once residents come to live with us we want them to have the best possible quality of life and for it to be the last time they ever have to move. In order to achieve this we need volunteers to help us.

I cannot stress the importance of this time in peoples lives, so we try to make it as good as possible at the end of their life.
