Meet Our Team

A unique staff of professionals including a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner and experienced caretakers  

At Hillside Estates Suites PCH, our team is the best around! We have a full-time Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner that works in conjunction with Primary Care Physicians in order to provide the highest quality of care, 24/7. This means that you are able to keep a PCP of your choice while also receiving the medical opinion of our CRNP. We will not bill your insurance for this service. The rest of our highly trained staff assists residents with day-to-day tasks that they may have trouble completing themselves.

Our team is much more than caregivers, they are companions. When you meet any member of our staff you will see that they truly care about each resident. Not only will your loved ones be taken care of, they will always have someone to talk with and to explore any of the facilities amenities with. 

Relationships That Matter

Creating lasting relationships is one of the most important aspects when it comes to the happiness of residents, and their loved ones. At Hillside Estates Suites, our nursing assistants, activities coordinator, beautician, housekeeping team, and dietary staff are fully committed to providing a safe environment.

 

This environment is successful not only because it keeps residents safe, but because it promotes the social, emotional, and spiritual well-being of each resident. 

Our outstanding team approach works toward creating a lifestyle that emphasizes each resident's dignity and individuality.

  • Arranging for health care

  • Administering medications

  • Doing laundry and getting dressed

  • Using a telephone
