What Is a Care Home?

Care homes provide care and accommodation for older people who require additional support during their day-to-day lives. From assisting those who find routine tasks more challenging, such as cooking or getting dressed, to those who require medical care, care homes offer a variety of care types to support those with both simple and more complex needs.

As well as providing 24/7 care and support, care homes also focus on helping older people to maintain a higher quality of life through engaging activities, hobbies and outings, as well as offering high-quality facilities from in-home hair salons to beautiful landscaped gardens.

What types of care do we provide at Hallmark Care Homes?

Our luxury care homes in England and Wales offer different types of high-quality care, including residential, dementia, nursing and respite care. Our caring and compassionate team take pride in tailoring care to every resident; each resident in our homes receives a personalised care plan which can be adapted at any point if their needs change.

Residential care

Our residential care focuses on the highest standard of relationship-centred care, helping residents to maintain their independence whilst receiving the support they require. We take pride in helping our residents to enjoy a fulfilled and enjoyable life, allowing them to maintain individual lifestyle choices alongside routines they cherish.

Nursing care

For those who require medical care, we offer compassionate nursing care that is planned and guided by a team of highly qualified nurses. Our nurses are on hand 24/7 to care for those with long-term medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, respiratory illnesses or those who need extra medical care following a stroke or injury.

Dementia care

We offer the highest standard of dementia care provided by trained dementia carers, who provide gentle, empathetic care to those living with dementia. We are continuously researching in this area to improve the standards of dementia care we offer; our team are passionate about giving older people living with dementia the very best quality of life through engaging activities and routines.

Respite care

Our respite care provides a welcoming, comfortable environment to older people on a short-term basis. If a regular carer requires relief or if you or your loved one needs temporary support following an operation or short illness, find out more about respite care.

Luxury facilities and engaging activities

At Hallmark Care Homes, we take pride in offering residents the very best quality of life with an all-inclusive feel. With modern and comfortable amenities from en-suite bedrooms to themed dining areas, residents can enjoy quiet time alone or spend time with friends and family in many areas of our homes. To help our residents get the most out of life, our care homes have luxury facilities such as His & Hers hair salons, cinema and therapy rooms as well as restaurants catered by professional chefs. Residents also enjoy their favourite hobbies by taking part in a series of activities planned by our Dedicated Lifestyle Team, which can include arts and crafts, cooking, gardening and more.
