Fulfilling a Need in Our Area (Our Inspiration)
Our administrator, Dolores (Ms. Dee) Mullens, was inspired to start Hickory Hill because of her parents and grandparents. Her loved ones enjoyed their final years in the Holland Home of South Holland, IL. They first lived as independent residents, and then gradually, an assisted living environment was necessary. While both elegant in design and exceptional in personal care, the Holland Home was also located in the community near friends and family.
During this period of time, Ms. Dee saw the need for such a home in our community. Hickory Hill was created to serve families in Southside VA so that they could be close to their loved ones. Her family has lived in this community for over 40 years and built the retirement home on their land in 1999. She has owned and operated Hickory Hill since that time.
Upon entering Hickory Hill, you have the feeling of warmth, coziness, and contentment. You will more than likely want to linger at our bird aviary in the beautiful reception area. And, if you happen to visit at mealtime, you cannot escape the aroma of wonderful food. The living rooms are bright and warm, and you will feel like pulling up a chair for a visit with friends and family. Your loved ones will be proud to say, "Hickory Hill is my home!"
