Hulcott Nursing Home, in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, has recently been awarded a two star rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). A series of extensive renovations made to the home has helped to increase its rating.
Part of the Caring Homes Group, Hulcott has been given a new, fresh look for spring. A bathroom has been converted into an on-site hairdressers’ salon, giving residents the opportunity to pamper themselves without leaving the security and comfort of the home. The communal areas, including the lounges, dining room and conservatory, have been completely redecorated and refurbished.
Hulcott’s luxurious, yet homely appearance, when combined with the superior standard of care provided by the dedicated team of staff, impressed the CQC so much that it raised the existing rating to a two star.
Marilyn Kimayong, Manager at Hulcott, says: “We are extremely proud to have improved our rating, and feel it is a true reflection of the high standard of care we provide. The staff at Hulcott work incredibly hard and so the CQC’s rating is well deserved.
“The refurbishments at Hulcott have really given the home a new lease of life, and we are all so pleased to work in such a lovely home. The new salon has already become a firm favourite, with residents thoroughly enjoying the chance to ‘visit the hairdressers’ without having to leave the home.”
