Care services at Gittisham Hill Park
The village has a 38 bed care home, Gittisham Hill House, providing primarily dementia, residential and nursing care. Care services at Gittisham Hill House are delivered by our care partners HC-One.
Gittisham Hill House offers an extremely high level of care and comforting environment for residents suffering from Dementia, enabling them to live well and enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle.
Residents of the village may choose to live independently in one of the village’s high specification bungalows while their spouse can receive dementia care and support, or respite care, in the care home. Please note places in the care home are subject to availability. It can provide the best of both worlds and peace of mind for families.
The key objective, as in all HC-One operated care homes, is to create a ‘home from home’ atmosphere with residents enjoying peace of mind in a comfortable, caring yet sociable and friendly environment.
The Care Home is overseen by an experienced manager who, along with a number of her staff, has worked at Gittisham Hill Park for many years. That local knowledge and continuity of care and service is highly valued by all residents.
HC-One homes are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
In each property there is an emergency call alarm system which is answered by a call centre in Exeter, who triage the call and ensure that appropriate services, or a nominated person/family member are called for the individual. This is paid for through the Service Charge.
