Care and Facilities

Choosing the right care home for yourself or someone close can be a difficult decision, especially if you’re unsure what type of care they require. Here at Hickathrift House, we can offer a number of care options, including palliative care and dementia care, as well as day care services. Those we support also have access to a number of different home features and facilities, such as exercise classes, landscaped gardens and a TV lounge, as well as electric profiling beds, a nurse call system and supplementary services like a hairdressing salon. We have a team of professionals working within our care home who can offer guidance and answer any questions that you may have about our care and facilities.
