We have built an outstanding reputation within the care sector and are quickly to becoming known as the first choice care home in the local community.  All of this wouldn’t be possible without values.  Values and being valued is what makes working for HC-One a unique and rewarding experience.

Kindness – Kindness is genuine and comes from the heart. By fostering kindness in our homes we build real connections between our Colleagues, Residents and Relatives.
Integrity – We know relationships are built on trust and mutual benefit, that’s why we deliver on what we say, keep our promises, and acknowledge any discrepancies.
Essential – Simply put, we want our Residents to feel loved and cared for.  That’s why we prioritise what is important & focus on those tasks to deliver unrivalled care services.
Simplest – We adapt a simple approach to care, we are always clear and straightforward in what we say & do, and what’s more, it works.
Best Value – We are not wasteful and we deliver real value.
