Hillgrove

Hillgrove is a charming detached Edwardian house located in a quiet, exclusive residential area of Wirral overlooking park wood on Bidston Hill. It provides specialist personalised care for elderly people with dementia in a warm, relaxed homely environment where the right to privacy and independence are central to the home's philosophy.

We cater for 23 male and female residents with varying degrees of dementia. The rooms are bright and spacious with pleasant aspects .

The home is run by a caring and qualified team who provide support, care and companionship to each individual. Each resident has a personalised care plan which allows for their individual needs and preferences to be catered for.


There is a vibrant atmosphere throughout the home and this is enhanced by a varied weekly schedule of activities overseen by our activities co-ordinator.

Hillgrove Ethos

The aim of the home is to provide 24 hour professional care for those who can no longer look after themselves at home and/or who need the company of others.

We aim to provide a safe and comfortable environment in which residents can fulfil their full potential physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially with the help of trained care workers.

In order to acheive our aim we adhere to the following principles of care:

 

PRIVACY: Freedom from the intrusion of others and the right to be left alone and undisturbed.

DIGNITY: Treating residents with respect and dignity at all times.

INDEPENDENCE: Allowing the taking of calculated risks and independent decision making.

CHOICE: Allowing residents the opportunity to select for themselves from a range of alternative  options.

RIGHTS: Ensuring that all basic human rights are upheld.

FULFILLMENT: To help residents realise all of their personal aspirations and to achieve to the highest level of ability in all aspects of daily living.
