Whatever you need or want, just ask.
Fun & Good Food - The Ingredients For A Great Life
Just because you're a little older doesn't mean life has to stop. At Hilgay we have lots of interesting activities, events, entertainment and trips for you to enjoy. In fact one of the most common comments we get is "I wish we'd done this sooner".
Meal times are another favourite time for getting together for a chat and enjoying the delicious, nutritious and varied menu provided by our 5 Star Chef.
All you accommodation ,meals, cleaning and ironing is of course included and done for you. However if you still enjoy baking, cooking, gardening or anything else you can do as much or as little as you like. Then we’ll do everything else like taking care of all those little chores and tasks that become so bothersome as the years move on, leaving you to relax and enjoy yourself.
It is our aim to work together to enable people who use the service to have the best quality of life possible, in an environment that is safe and comfortable, with care and support provided with dignity and respect. By listening to our residents and understanding what matters most to them, we will deliver exceptional person centred care and support.
We will respect and retain privacy, dignity and independence, as far as possible, irrespective of the person's physical or mental infirmity
Our Care Team

- 24 hour care and support

There are a wide variety of activities that residents may join in with if they so wish. These include sing-along sessions, quizzes, arts and crafts and film afternoons. Hilgay is an animal friendly home. Outings to the shops and trips out can also be organised. Free wi-fi and I-pad like tablets are provided for residents’ use.
Highlights in resident’s lives are celebrated such as birthdays and wedding anniversaries, as well as seasonal festivities. Families and friends are welcome to attend all our events.
We welcome and encourage the involvement of family and friends in a resident’s care. Because care is specifically planned according to the needs of the resident we will often seek information regarding previous lifestyles and interests from family members.
These are determined on an individual basis, dependant on the care needs of the resident.
We will carry out assessments of needs that will be used to develop individual care plans with the objective of meeting the aims of each person.
We have regular visits from a chiropodist, optician and hairdresser. We can organise visits from physiotherapists, speech therapists and other professionals should a resident so require.
