Residential care

All genders


We care for adults with profound and multiple learning difficulties.

Located in Purley, Croydon, Russell Hill boasts a large back garden with a trampoline and an indoor communal area. While we specialise in epilepsy, our care team also provide support with learning difficulties, autism and mental health. We tailor a package of care alongside a warm and nurturing environment which reflects our residents wishes.

We work closely with each resident to help build their skillset and help them to be more independent in everyday life. At Russell Hill we’re committed to supporting our residents to be independent, confident, and resilient. We have a specialist team that provides our residents the opportunity to grow and maintain a healthy level of good physical and mental wellbeing.

Our service users are supported to actively participate in the delivery of their care. We support all residents with managing areas of their daily lives, including managing their finances and nutrition.

Residents that we support benefit from physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, music therapy, art therapy and reflexology. Some of which are funded by their funding authorities and others are self-funded.

Russell Hill is located close to Purley High Street, which has many shops and small supermarkets. We are close by to parks, such as Rounshaw, which is perfect for long, woodland walks and wildlife. Russell Hill’s ideal location provides great connections to London through Purley Station, and good links to buses going to surrounding areas like Croydon, Caterham, Wallington and Sutton.

We support our service users to access community links such as cinemas, leisure centres, shopping centres, seaside trips, college, garden centres and cafes.

Our wonderful team understand that a holistic approach is necessary to ensure those in our care are safe, happy, and healthy. We promote and fulfil the company values of being caring, honest, proactive, and empowering for those we support.

Conditions we support, but are not limited to:

  • autism

  • physical disabilities
