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 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 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, once we have done something it can never be put right, so we try to make it as good as possible at the end of their life.
