My mother was admitted as an emergency respite care resident for initially two weeks. She had reacted extremely badly to prescribed medication and would hopefully recover after the drugs had worked out for her system. Sadly this did not happen and she died on the 3rd of October, 2015. The care she received at Hulcott was second to none. She was treated with care and dignity at all times. The staff were magnificent and the manager was superb... carehomes.co.uk - Mavourneed E Daughter of Resident/Service User
The staff are excellent, very friendly and also keep me informed of any problems regarding the client. Nothing is a problem that the staff cannot respond to.

Mum received excellent care by wonderful staff and nurses during her stay at Hulcott. She was treated with care and respect, maintaining her dignity until she sadly passed away. Mum was always kept extremely clean with her bedding changed frequently. Nothing was too much trouble when we visited, even when we stayed with Mum until very late last night. I can't thank or praise Hulcott enough for the way Mum was looked after until her death... carehomes.co.uk - B Daughter of Resident/Service User

I just say a huge thank you and all your staff at Hulcott for the loving care they gave my wife during her last two weeks of her life. I would also like to thank you all for the support I received while she was with you. I was very concerned when she moved from the hospice where she felt loved, cared for and safe. However my fears were groundless, the time devoted to her needs, their empathy and the patience and professionalism of all your people without exception was exemplary... carehomes.co.uk - Robin G Husband of Resident/Service User

Realising it was going to be difficult for mother to readjust from living in her own home, we were impressed by the manner and care that the staff showed in helping her make the transition.
