I go to Hillcrest for respite to give my wife a break. I had meningitis and now have brain damage. I've been a couple of times already this year, it's a good service.
The food is good
The staff don't pester you, you can do what you like as long as you don't go out the grounds. They also take you out on trips on the bus.
You get a room to yourself and there are plenty of showers and toilets. They don't let you have a shower alone but that's ok with me.
They have special nights like bingo, I don't go to these, it's not my thing. I've got a TV in my room and I prefer to watch that. I do like the bus trips though.
Hillcrest is alright, I don't think it could be better unless they could make it bigger.
