Hillside Care Home, Suffolk
Welcome to Hillside Care Home
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 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, 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.

Daily Life at Hillside
Keeping things personal
The comfortable surroundings at Hillside are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning 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 give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting 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.
The staff in the care home are marvellous and do their absolute best to look after the residents. We have been pleased with how our mum has been cared for.
Lovely staff, very caring. My father-in-law is very happy here and feels very secure. He enjoys the food and has a lovely room. We are happy that he is well cared for.
I found the staff very friendly and helpful and they looked after my brother extremely well. I have had to visit quite a few care homes but never one that was so friendly.
We consistently apply infection control procedures and services that meet or exceed the requirements and expectations of our customers.

You can book a viewing using the form above or by calling the home.
Our Head Chef and the 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.
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 25 years. Every team member receives our unique ‘Living in my World’ dementia training which is accredited by City and Guilds.
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, also accredited by City and Guilds 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.
The length of time people spend in a care home varies according to their needs and preferences. Our homes offer permanent care to suit your needs or perhaps a respite stay might be required during a period of convalescence after being in hospital. Day Care is also available at many homes to ensure care can continue when a regular carer is unavailable.
