Review of Hulcott Care Home with Nursing

My mother spent 3 months at the Hulcott Nursing Home and was extremely well looked after. It was the perfect way to end her life, if you know what I mean. Everybody was very attentive to her needs and made it their job to get to know Alice personally. They also did everything to make the stay as enjoyable and pain free as possible. My family are very grateful for all their efforts.

Review of Hulcott Care Home with Nursing

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. Today, after 3 months though mother's dementia has progressed and her physical abilities improved slightly, the same care and attention to detail is being shown. Overall the staff do their best under difficult circumstances to ensure that mum's stay is as happy and comfortable as possible.
