When we launched Healthcare Homes in 2005, our main objectives were to create an environment where residents receive the highest standards of care; where dignity is respected; where talents and interests are encouraged; and where life is lived to its fullest potential.

We have remained 100% focused to these objectives, and today continue to deliver the highest quality residential and nursing care to all residents who live in any one of our 35 homes across the South East.

Our Home

The Hillings is a purpose built residential home in Eaton Socon, Cambridgeshire, comprising of a number of attractive wings arranged around well stocked courtyard gardens. In a quiet residential area, The Hillings is easy to find for visitors and guests yet tucked away at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac where rest and relaxation are guaranteed. Surrounding the home is an area of lawn where residents can walk or, during good weather, sit under the shade of the trees. The courtyard gardens are stocked with colourful shrubs and plants that give year-round interest, particularly to those that have a love of gardening, making it one of the most attractive residential homes in Cambridgeshire.
