Hulcott Nursing Home praised for dignified and personalised care

Hulcott Nursing Home, in Aylesbury, has been praised in its latest Care Quality Commission (CQC) report for providing personalised and compassionate care, with kind and dignified support for all.

The care home was rated as Good in each of the five inspection categories – safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led – during the latest inspection, published in December.

Residents told the Care Quality Commission (CQC) that they felt safe and well cared for at the home. One said; “They’re very good to us. They look after us very well…, this is a lovely nursing home.”

Another added; “They look after us very well. They’re very kind. They do everything for you and look after you.”

A relative said; “I have peace of mind now,” and “The culture is to look after us as visitors as well as people who live here. My relative feels safe and well cared for.”

Colleagues at Hulcott Nursing Home made the process of moving in to the care home easy, giving plenty of information prior to the move to enable residents and relatives to make an informed decision.

Part of the Caring Homes Group, Hulcott Nursing Home provides the highest standards of specialist nursing and residential care for up to 38 elderly people.

Residents told the CQC inspectors the care team had been well trained to support them and they were supported to maintain their independence.

One said; “I find it very good, the staff are very good, very concerned.”

The care team were seen to have a good understanding of residents likes and dislikes. There was good team work and effective communication seen during the inspection. One team member said; “It’s like a family really – this home in particular. I felt comfortable from the off. “

Margaret Smart, Home Manager, said: “At Caring Homes we want to ensure that our home is just that – a caring home. We are all extremely happy that the CQC inspectors have given us a Good rating in every category.”

To find out about life at Hulcott Nursing Home the inspectors spoke with 12 people living at the home, four relatives, the registered manager and 11 staff including regional managers. The team also looked at six staff recruitment files and seven care plans, observed a medicine administration round and looked at a number of records regarding the recording and storage of medicines.

Caring Homes Group was established in 1994 by registered nurse Helena Jeffery and her son Paul. Since then the company has grown to become one of the most highly respected independent care and support providers in the UK and remains family run.
