DESPITE these unprecedented times, residents and the dedicated team at Care UK’s Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury remain upbeat as they aim to keep spirits high.
Colleagues have been making the most of the hobby and leisure space for activities and have also been screening films in the cinema and running activities in the café area.
And, with the recent launch of a special initiative specifically designed to support and improve the lives of those living with dementia, the care home is ideally placed to offer expert care to the community of Newbury and the surrounding area.
The dedicated team has been working tirelessly to continue to provide the much-needed essential care to residents and everyone working here believes that living in a care home should be just as good as living in your own home – or better, particularly during these difficult times.
“We ’ve built a warm, welcoming community, with everything we need to provide the highest standards of personalised care” says the home’s manager, Kerry T hompson. “In the current climate the safety and wellbeing of residents, colleagues and visitors remains our utmost priority, and we are taking every measure to ensure Government guidelines and hygiene precautions are followed.
“We look forward to opening our home up to the community again soon, but in the meantime, we’re always on the lookout for more friendly and caring individuals to join us.”
