Hilltop Gardens, AX Care’s premium retirement village, recently celebrated its fifth anniversary. Opened in 2015, the upmarket complex located in Naxxar has evolved into a thriving community where residents can enjoy the best years of their life benefitting from luxury amenities and personalised care.
“Hilltop Gardens was born from a vision to introduce an entirely new retirement concept in Malta—a luxury retirement village that empowers retirees to enjoy their independence with the security, companionship, and reassurance that comes from being part of an engaging care community. Due to the Group’s proven track record in the hospitality industry, we were uniquely positioned to establish such an upscale complex with high-end facilities and quality services tailored to the elderly. Five years on, we have seen our forward-thinking approach prove immensely successful, with many having come to call Hilltop Gardens home,” said Mr Angelo Xuereb, Chairman of AX Group.
From the conceptual and planning stages, Hilltop Gardens was designed to provide its residents with private apartment-style living within a self-contained village environment. The complex boasts its own landscaped gardens, restaurant, indoor and outdoor pools, chapel, and many other state-of-the-art facilities. Over the years, this “village within a village” concept has created a true community of belonging and support.
“We are immensely proud in having fostered a true community spirit within Hilltop Gardens. We took great care to provide our residents with all their day-to-day domestic and leisure needs in a centralised location. As we have come to know our residents on an individual basis over the past five years, we continue to cater to their interests and preferences through a richer variety of communal activities that encourage a greater sense of connection to the extended Hilltop community of residents, next of kin, and AX Care staff,” said Mr Michael Warrington, CEO of AX Group.
The past year saw AX Care face many unprecedented challenges created by the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the circumstances, the AX Care team’s commitment to providing professional, individualised care to its clients has remained unwavering throughout.
“From the start, the entire Hilltop Gardens team has been committed to providing holistic, person-centred care within a stimulating community environment. There was arguably no greater demonstration of this promise than during the outbreak of the coronavirus. Amid the toughest period of the pandemic, around 100 members of our staff volunteered to reside within Hilltop Gardens for 10 weeks in order to curb the spread of the virus. It is this level of care and dedication that sets Hilltop Gardens apart as one of Malta’s most respected healthcare providers,” said Ms Charmaine Montesin, General Manager of AX Care.
The special anniversary milestone was marked with a commemorative holy mass consecrated at the Hilltop Garden chapel, followed by a sit-down dinner for residents and invited relatives. The event was attended by AX Group Chairman Mr Angelo Xuereb, Director of Construction & Development Ms Denise Micallef Xuereb, and AX Group CEO Mr Michael Warrington.
