Leonard Plant added; “It’s just wonderful. I can talk to them about my life and work on the farm and they listen intently. It’s really lovely to see them each week.”
The project / scheme was inspired by Tony Gearing, who setup YOPEY Befrienders which has been a great success and he is hoping to expand the project across Suffolk.
At Hillside Care Home in Sudbury we provide residential care for up to 44 elderly residents with an excellent reputation for delivering the highest quality care and rated ‘Good’ by the CQC.
We also benefit from a close working relationship with our sister home, Mellish House, located next door. Mellish House provides specialist residential support for people living with dementia.
Our two homes provide a continuous care pathway offering elderly residents, their families and loved ones, the peace of mind afforded by knowing that changing care needs can be catered for at a single location.
