Our Mission Statement:
"To develop and sustain a successful business enterprise which
delivers high quality residential and other care services for older
Quantum Care was formed in 1992 to take responsibility for residential
care homes for older people, which had previously been run by Hertfordshire
County Council. The majority of our homes have been well established
in their local communities for many years.
Each of our care homes has been re-built or refurbished in the
last 8 years as part of a £30 million building programme.
The buildings are specifically designed to provide a safe, secure
and homely environment for our clients, with beautiful landscaped
gardens, to be enjoyed by residents and visitors.
Each home is comprised of units, each with a self contained kitchen
area, bathrooms, lounge and dining areas. Each unit has around 10-15
bedrooms depending on the size of the home. All rooms are single,
many with en-suite facilities, promoting independence and dignity
for our clients. Residents are encouraged to bring their own belongings
and smaller items of furniture with them, and to personalise their
rooms as their own. Most of the homes have at least one unit specifically
for those clients requiring a higher level of care. These units
are designed to care for people with Alzhiemers Disease and other
similar illness and have a higher staffing ratio.
Each home has a large fully equipped central kitchen and many of
the kitchens in Quantum Cares homes also provide meals for
Day Care centres and Meals on Wheels clients.
We offer a range of care services for more than 1,400 older people
throughout Hertfordshire, which include: Residential Care, Short
Stay Care, Laundry, Day Care, Meals on Wheels and Bathing. Quantum
Care is one of the leading providers of residential care for older
people in the county.
Investing in People
Quantum Care is one of the largest employers in Hertfordshire,
with almost 1,800 staff. Ensuring that we provide the best possible
level of service means that we need to invest heavily in the people
who work for us. By doing this we can be sure that our staff are
competent and confident in performing their tasks when working with
As a result, Quantum Care has developed a recognised Induction
and Training programme for new care staff. Staff at all levels are
encouraged to progress and develop their skills by undertaking training
towards National Vocational Qualifications (NVQ).
