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.
