Welcome to Hillside Care Home in Sudbury

Hillside Care Home is located in the picturesque village of Great Cornard on the outskirts of Sudbury in Suffolk, close to the town’s shops and cafes. Hillside is a light and spacious home where residents can relax in a range of comfortable lounges or in their own furnished bedroom.

There’s a hair salon at our care home in Suffolk, so your loved one can continue to look their best, plus accessible outside seating areas for enjoying fresh air and sunshine. Our sister home, Mellish House Residential Home which is located next door, provides care for people living with dementia, so together we can support your loved one even if their needs change in the future.

Keeping Things Personal

The comfortable surroundings at our care home in Suffolk are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We’ll always endeavour to learn as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We love to encourage independence at Hillside, giving individuals the choice as to how the home is run. If they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even to dust their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love. Nothing is too much trouble at Hillside Care Home.

      As Hillside’s SMO it's my job to make sure the home is safe and we adhere to the current Health & Safety guidelines. I take pride in making the home look smart and fresh with decorating the communal areas of the home.

    As a people person, caring has always been a passion of mine. This is the aspect that makes my job worthwhile, making a positive impact on our residents and their families lives no matter how big or small, in what has become their home and supporting them to continue a good quality of life.

    I continuously work to improve and maintain the care standards at Hillside and manage our sister home Mellish House which is located next door. Being so close means, we can offer a full care pathway for residents as their needs change with peace of mind.

You can book a viewing using the form above or by calling the home.

Who decides on the menu?

The Head Chef at our care home in Suffolk and their team have many years of cooking experience. They craft their nutritionally balanced menus using seasonal produce, and are guided by the feedback provided to them from our residents during their monthly hospitality meetings and individual care plans.

What qualifications do your care team have?

All members of our care teams are given the training and support needed to help them provide the highest standards of care.

Caring Homes has been providing care for over 29 years. Every team member receives our unique ‘Living in my World’ dementia training.

It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, as well as addressing clinical aspects of care.

The ‘Food in my World’ training provides the hospitality team and chefs with the skills and knowledge to stimulate senses and increase creativity in the cooking and presentation of food. This can provide a much-improved dining experience for residents living with dementia and or dysphagia.

How long can people stay in a care home for?

The length of time people spend in a care home varies according to their needs and preferences. At Hillside Care Home in Sudbury, we offer permanent care to suit your needs, as well as respite stay might be required during a period of convalescence after being in hospital. Day Care is also available to ensure care can continue when a regular carer is unavailable.
