The Lee Family
Hill House is truly a family concern.
Woodlands was established in 1976 when Gill Lee first started to look after her grandmother when she was unable to find alternative suitable residential accommodation for her.
When that proved to be a success Gill, a trained Nurse, decided to take in more residents. She had an extension built to her home and the rest as they say is history. Hill Brow was purpose designed and built in 1986.
Alison, her daughter, also trained as a nurse and holds a degree in nursing from City University / St Barts Hospital, London with a Diploma in Elderly Care. She left the NHS as Ward Manager of an elderly care unit at The Royal Free Hospital when she assumed control of both homes following her mother’s retirement in 1998.
The family’s commitment for over 30 years, has been to provide the very best care for the elderly, whatever their needs. This has been paramount and has been rewarded by achieving excellent status in both the CQC inspections and Environmental Health inspections.
Alison’s young family are already involved in the homes’ activities, so who knows we may be looking forward to a third generation of the family to lead the way!
We are members of both the Hampshire Care Association and Registered Nursing Homes Association, enabling us to have access to and support these valuable bodies, and where we can share the best practice with other homes.
We are proud that our homes have scored excellent 3 star status following our unannounced inspections.
In August 2011 we opened a new state of the art 56 bedroom nursing and dementia home, Hill House. Here we aim to offer the highest level of care with the best facilities in a comfortable environment.
