In a pleasant leafy suburb of Elstree in Hertfordshire, close to London, this 18th Century listed building was historically a school, and has now been extended and fully modernised to create an attractive, well-equipped home, easily accessible from the M1, A1 and M25.
Hill House provides care for young people with physical disabilities as well as older people requiring residential or nursing care. The home can also provide shorter stays for convalescence and respite. We also offer enablement and rehabilitation, with a GP and physiotherapist on hand to offer additional support.
Bupa takes staff training very seriously. Hill House's nurses and carers are trained to provide excellent, individualised care under the supervision of the experienced home manager.
The home's chef provides excellent food that reflects residents' preferences. Fresh, seasonal produce is used to create a variety of tasty, nutritious meals, with hot and cold choices available. There is also tea and coffee served with biscuits in the morning and with delicious home-made cakes in the afternoon.
Residents can choose to enjoy sociable mealtimes in the traditional dining room or in their own rooms if they prefer. On warmer days residents can even choose to eat outside in the delightful gardens. Friends and relatives are also most welcome to join residents for meals or just pop in and enjoy afternoon tea.
At Hill House, residents are always given choice and freedom in how they would like to spend their day, although we encourage them to stay active. We have two activity co-ordinators, who ensure there is always something enjoyable going on through regular activity sessions.
We enjoy getting out and about with shopping trips or visits to museums, the theatre or the cinema. We're also well situated for outings to the nearby Aldenham country park.
Hill House features its own internet café and a hairdresser visits the home regularly.
Hill House has been managed by Ben Domah since 2006. Ben is a Registered Mental Nurse with a Certificate in Management Studies among his other qualifications.
