Herefordshire Care Homes is a company dedicated to surpassing expectations. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) sets out "The Fundamental Standards" - these are the standards that people should expect to receive from all care homes in England. At Herefordshire Care Homes we exceed these standards in everything we do, and are very proud to have achieved four 'Outstanding' ratings, placing us within the top 1% of care homes in the country. From the moment you step in to any one of our homes it’s easy to see how we aim to do this.
All of the homes are of architectural interest or historic note and have been selected for their individual qualities as well as their suitability for residents to enjoy life in a beautiful environment. So if you are considering care for yourself or a loved one please contact the home you wish to visit and we will ensure that someone can welcome you and answer any questions. You are also welcome to visit at anytime without an appointment.
We place no obligation on any visit to the home and you are free to take as long as you like to make sure you are making the right choice.
In our aim to provide high quality care we never overlook our wider ethical responsibilities and maintain a commitment to sustainable and social responsibility.
We have chosen beautiful locations for our care homes and the services we choose to support our business are chosen to protect our surroundings, minimise our carbon footprint and promote animal and environmental welfare.
Herefordshire Care Homes aim to consistently provide a service that exceeds the "Fundamental Standards" as established by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). In addition to these legal responsibilities we aim to provide a service that has been developed and planned with the people who live in our homes.
