The Berkshire Care Home is located on the edge of Wokingham and is close to shops, public transport and local amenities. The home is convenient for the M4 motorway. Wokingham shopping centre is less than one mile. The home provides residential, nursing, respite, and palliative care.
The property was once a private residence which has been sympathetically renovated and extended. Accommodation at The Berkshire Care Home is in single occupancy rooms, although there are several spacious enough for sharing companions. Most rooms have private toilet facilities.
There are several quiet sitting rooms and TV lounges in which to relax. Traditional home cooked meals using fresh produce are served in the separate dining room. Daily choices are available and special diets can be catered for.
An experienced hair stylist and a qualified chiropodist visit the home regularly, and a range of complementary therapies can be arranged.
The home provides a varied programme of activities for residents. The recreation and activities team oversee everything from picnics and film club, to beauty afternoons and singing. If it’s sunny residents can go outside, where they can appreciate the best of the day. Activities are planned in consultation with residents and their families to ensure there is something for everyone.
