Welcome to Hillside Lodge Care Home
You'll find Hillside Lodge in Tweedmouth, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland.
Here care is based around each person's individual needs. Some residents have only modest care requirements and may simply enjoy living within a secure and caring environment; others need 24-hour nursing assistance.
Whatever the need, care is delivered with patience, kindness and understanding. Each resident's care plan is exclusive to them and aimed at promoting health and independence.
Ours is a purpose-built home within easy reach of shops, public transport, the A1 motorway, and other amenities. Many beauty spots are nearby and the town centre is just half a mile away.
Care is provided in a selection of rooms. All our bedrooms are singles with en-suites.
Life at Hillside Lodge Care Home
To meet the individual needs of each person staying with us, we organise one-to-one and group pastimes, diversions and entertainment - inside and outside the home.
Musicians regularly perform at Hillside Lodge, and we have a bagpipes player on Burns Night. Local children also visit us with their choir.
I find the staff very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble, my father is well cared for and it is nice to know he is in a safe environment.
My papa was a client at Hillside Lodge for 12 years. I visited everyday even though I worked there. The staff were brilliant with my papa and he was always cared for and always enjoyed his food. The day he passed away was a day I will never forget as the staff were brilliant with me my mum and sister.
The home is mostly good. Carers are very good, some fair, they need more help. Food good at times, could be better. On the whole not too bad.
The staff are helpful and friendly. They help all the time and someone is always around to help. The staff always have a smile and the activity person keeps us busy. The food is very good. The management are also helpful and advise my god child how I am doing.
From my first visit to Hillside Lodge I have been impressed by the relaxed welcoming atmosphere (and the absence of unpleasant odours sometimes observed in care homes!) Without exception I have found the staff cheerful, friendly, polite and extremely competent. Residents are treated with kindness and dignity, without the patronising "talking down to a child" attitude sometimes adopted while addressing the elderly. Relatives are encouraged to share any concerns with the staff who are always approachable and willing to listen. I feel Hillside Lodge offers a very high standard.
Very happy with the home and I get excellent service from the staff.
Staff are very caring.
It's the best thing for me because I could not look after myself after my fall.
I enjoy having company and the staff are good.
I enjoy being here because I am very well looked after.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.
