Reviews

9.7 Hulcott Care Home with Nursing has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.678)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Hulcott Care Home with Nursing is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hulcott Care Home with Nursing in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 15 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.678 for Hulcott Care Home with Nursing is calculated as follows: ( (243 Excellents x 5) + (72 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 332 Ratings = 4.678

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hulcott Care Home with Nursing is based on 15 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

My great aunt had a fall recently. The paramedics said that the carers were sat on the floor with her and talking to her when they arrived.
The staff were all very helpful in getting her sorted out.
They rang me when she fell which enabled me to go and be with her. I am very grateful for the level of care they give to her.

Very good. They look after you and help you as best they can. I was very relaxed in the shower as I had not had anything like this before.
All in all the help is very good.
Nothing is too much trouble.

My husband has tried more than half a dozen homes over the last few years and it matters not if it looks and feels 5 star. The only thing that matters are the carers - from the top down. Hulcott is different as soon as you walk in the door. From the manager through to the carers, to the cooks, the attitude is right! The only problem is getting a place there for respite.

I could not have been treated better in any home or hospital. I am most grateful to the staff from cleaners to nurses for the treatment I have received during my stay here.

My mother has been moved into Hulcott Nursing Home from a residential home, now needing nursing care.
I have found all the staff to be excellent, very caring to my mother and supported in all her needs now that she is very frail and bedridden.
She is well looked after and her safety paramount.

After trying several places for respite, I was lucky to find Hulcott Care Home with Nursing. I found the manager friendly and approachable. It was clear all the staff respected and liked her. On arriving at Hulcott Care Home with Nursing we were met by one of the male nurses, He was friendly and helpful showing me to my room. The room was on the ground floor with French windows which opened onto a grassed area. It was a very light room. Various staff passing by introduced themselves and shook my hand. Everyone was cheerful and helpful. A lot of time was spent organising my medication. In fact, Hulcott Care Home with Nursing has been the best for organising medication. I had a shower most mornings after having breakfast in bed and my first medication of the day. After the shower, I was taken to the communal room. There was always some activity going on and on Saturday, there was a karaoke. Some of the staff joined in. Although my mobility is bad I enjoyed the atmosphere! If I needed anything and asked the staff, they would if they could. I slept well and enjoyed the care and would be happy to go back there. At no time did I feel rushed and the whole atmosphere is happy and relaxed. My wife enjoyed her break knowing I was being cared for properly!

Arrived late evening feeling terrible. I was looked after so well. The next day the activities coordinator came round and did my hair and had a long chat and made me feel so much better. Thank you. The food is excellent and served with a smile, you must have a fantastic chef! Every day, a friendly cleaner came in and had a chat and a smile, as well as the coordinator who came in every day, had a long chat and a laugh and I looked forward to it. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The laundry staff are very good and the carers are fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. Loved my stay and feel so well.

My dear relative at 98 was admitted on a two-week respite care break for two weeks on February 7th 2015. She was not expected to last very long as she was extremely ill. 18 months later she is still with us, thanks to the excellent care provided by the staff. She is well cared for, is very clean and is constantly checked for pressure sores as 95% of her life is now confined to bed. Her room has recently been renovated and she enjoys a pleasant view of the gardens. She feels safe. The atmosphere is good, lots of smiles from the staff. This is a good place to be if you are frail and elderly.

My family and I cannot express how grateful we are to this beautiful care home and the most amazing staff. Our Dad/Granddad, moved into Hulcott just before Christmas. From the moment we entered we knew in our hearts that we had found the most perfect place for his End of Life Care. There was peace and tranquility amidst lots of smiles and laughter and the care, each and everyday, was utmost. We will never ever be able to thank the Manager and Staff for the kindness and thoughtfulness shown to Dad and the rest of us during his short stay with them whilst he was so poorly, but we know that he felt safe and happy throughout that time.

My mother, who had been a resident for 4 1/4 years (2 1/4 bedridden) began deteriorating. As her daughter I spent eight days and two nights at her bedside. The gentleness and caring by all the staff during this time, towards my mother and other residents became apparent throughout all the time I was there. Sadly my mother passed away, but I know the staff had all helped to make my mother feel secure and safe during her life there.

My mother and father were residents for a time in 2015. Mum had recently had an amputation of her leg, was wheelchair bound and had early onset dementia and Dad was frail with some medical conditions. They are both now 90. We did encounter some lovely individual Carers with high standards of care who were very kind and skilled at what they do, others were so-so. We did begin, however, to have some misgivings about the very obvious profit making drive of Caring Homes as an organisation and while appreciating it is a business the 'penny pinching' was evident in the furnishings in some rooms, the quality of many of the meals and the lack of entertainment. The renovated rooms are fine but at the time of our association with Hulcott, the other accommodation (bedrooms) was very tired. The gardens, however, are work in progress but lovely. While we were grateful to some excellent staff members for the care they provided to Mum and Dad, we did have an occasion where emergency hospitalisation was necessary (at our insistence) and when we later wanted clarification of events, sadly, we were left concerned at the complacent attitude of the Area Manager. The decision was made to bring Mum and Dad home and they are happily settled with live-in care at their own home.

Margaret Smart, Marketing Executive at Hulcott Care Home with Nursing responded to this review on 03 Feb 2016:

Thank you very much for your review, we really appreciate your feedback. Hulcott has recently benefited from a substantial investment and refurbishment programme, which we hope has helped to improve the environment in the home. We work in very close partnership with our residents’ GPs to ensure our residents’ health and wellbeing is of the utmost priority at all times, and would urge you to contact us again if you wish to discuss this matter further. Please provide your preferred contact details to our Head Office, and the Regional Operations Director covering Hulcott will return your call.

On the very first time of entering Hulcott Care Home, with nursing, I was greeted in the most friendly and caring manner. I had dropped in without an appointment as I was on the way to see my mother in hospital, and wanted to make enquiries into a placement. The manager could not have been any more kind, understanding if she tried. Within 3 days my mother was in her own room, the staff are friendly and most welcoming. Always a smile and that's all staff who we meet, whatever their job.
All my mother's visitors have said this to me, so I know it's not just when I am around. I feel they cannot do enough for her and her care is their priority.

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.

Hulcott Care Home is a first class care home delivering quality, compassionate care and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone with complex care needs, such as those of my mother-in-law.

The team 'go the extra mile' in looking after their residents. Always smiling and cheerful, the staff indicate that Hulcott is a happy, well-managed place where both workers and residents are treated with kindness and respect. I honestly do not believe that my mother-in-law could be better cared for anywhere!
