HILLCREST COTTAGES, LINCOLNSHIRE

Hillcrest Cottages is a specialist supported living service which has been developed to enable people with learning disabilities, including those with autism, physical disabilities, complex needs and behaviours that challenge to live happy, healthy, safe lives and to achieve their full potential. This service aims to deliver individually designed care and support to enable people to lead independent, meaningful lives as active members of the community. We work in partnership with the people we support, their family and friends and will encourage their active involvement, ensuring their views and comments are listened to and acted upon.

Comprising six well-appointed one and two-bedroom cottages, Hillcrest Cottages provides a safe environment for adults who may find larger, mixed-use developments too challenging, but who need the support of 24-hour staffing. Generous space, both inside and around the property, along with the use of the neighbouring care home facilities, allows each service user greater independence and the opportunity to develop life skills.

Each house is disability-friendly, with step-free access and further personalisation can be made following an assessment of individual requirements. Residents have personal gardens in each home, as well as a kitchen, and living and dining rooms that are either private or shared with one other resident. The homes are also protected by modern security and safety technology.

The homes are located on Thimbleby Road, moments away from Horncastle’s high street, a mosaic of antique shops, galleries, and award-winning dining spots. Known for its vibrant weekly and monthly farmers’ markets, Horncastle is where history meets modernity. And, for the nature aficionados, the expansive Lincolnshire Wolds, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offer an undulating canvas of nature’s finest.
