HC-One. Adult Social Care Providers

With over 300 care homes nationwide, HC-One is one of the largest and fastest-growing adult social care providers in the UK. Originally established in 2011 as part of the Healthcare Locums Group, the company rebranded as HC-One in 2014 and has rapidly expanded to become a leading name in elderly residential and nursing care.

HC-One's core purpose is to enable people to live later life well. Regardless of health conditions or disabilities, the company believes everyone deserves to continue enjoying meaning, joy and connection as they age. This ethos shapes the high-quality, person-centred care provided across all HC-One homes.

The company's care homes vary in size from smaller, intimate residences to larger centres providing specialist nursing and dementia care. However, every home shares an atmosphere of warmth, compassion and community. Supporting residents to feel at home and maintain personal routines is a top priority.

Experienced, dedicated staff are central to the HC-One approach. The company invests heavily in recruitment, training and development to ensure skilled, caring teams. Many employees stay for years, building genuine bonds with residents. Strong leadership provides oversight and accountability at each home.

Moving into a care home is a major life change. HC-One aims to ease this transition by providing a welcoming, inclusive environment. New residents and loved ones are introduced to the home's layout, staff and daily routines. Care plans are tailored to each individual, respecting their unique needs, interests and wishes.

Life in an HC-One home focuses on more than just care. Keeping residents mentally and physically active is key to wellbeing. All homes feature activity spaces and engaging leisure programmes run by dedicated coordinators. HC-One also encourage community connections, social events and maintaining personal hobbies.

Dining is another essential part of the HC-One experience. Chefs prepare nutritious meals on-site every day, catering to medical needs while providing choice and flexibility. Mealtimes are designed to be sociable occasions. Friends, family and pets are welcome to share mealtimes too.

HC-One is pioneering in deploying technology to improve elderly care. Solutions like electronic care planning, medication management systems and monitoring devices increase safety and efficiency. However, human interaction remains at the heart of what HC-One does.

As a responsible nationwide operator, HC-One believes in transparency and compliance. Its homes are rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by the UK regulator, the Care Quality Commission. The company is open about fees and funding options. It reinvests profits into improving care, developing staff and upgrading facilities.

Most importantly, HC-One practises individualised care rooted in respect and dignity. Staff take time to know each resident’s personality, history and preferences. This enables truly personalised support based on what matters most to them. Even as needs change, the focus stays on sustaining joy and meaning.

With its balance of scale and care, investment and compassion, HC-One provides stability and experience alongside a homely, welcoming environment. Its growing network of homes across the UK enables high standards of later life care.
