Living at this service
Hillside is ready to welcome a mature woman to live at the service.
The women we support here include two women in their fifties, both who are non-verbal. One lives with Down’s Syndrome and enjoys people watching and driving in her car. The other woman lives with learning disabilities and epilepsy. She loves listening to the radio in her room.
At Hillside, people like socialising, swimming, watching television, sensory activities, and being in the community.
“Hillside is a beautiful bungalow in a quiet and safe area. The staff enjoy working with the women here as the atmosphere is very calm. It really is a lovely place to live - the community is strong and caring, and it’s close to the countryside as well as amenities.” Manager, Hillside
