Life at Hillyard House

At Hillyard House, you choose the lifestyle that suits you.

In the morning, we’ll give you a call to check you’re okay. After breakfast in your apartment, you might choose to meet friends in one of our communal lounges, or take part in one of our regular activities. At lunchtime, you have everything you need to prepare lunch for yourself, friends or family in your apartment.

If you fancy a change of scenery, you can catch a bus or tube to the centre of London for a spot of shopping. If you’d prefer to stay in the local area, you could visit Brixton Market, pick up fresh produce at the outdoor markets on Electric Avenue, or take a stroll around Brockwell Park.

In the afternoon, you might join us for one of our regular social events, take part in a quiz, join in an arts and crafts session, or perhaps visit our onsite hairdressing salon for some pampering. By evening, you may want to take it easy after all the activity! If not, you can always join friends to watch TV, or for a chat or a mutual hobby.

I have enjoyed living here for so many years, I like my home it’s lovely. I like going for walks round the beautiful garden, and the staff are friendly and helpful.
