If you’re caring for a loved one at home who is living with dementia, it’s good to know that expert dementia care is closer than you think.

The experienced and dedicated team at Care UK’s Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury deliver quality care that’s tailored to each resident’s individual needs and wishes.

Winchcombe Place certainly makes you think again about what a modern care home should be. It has its own hair and beauty salon, café, cinema and gardens so there’s plenty to do, whatever the weather.

“Living with dementia should be no barrier to enjoying a fun and fulfilling life – in fact, when a person is doing what they enjoy, they feel calmer, safe and happy,” says Home Manager Kerry Thompson, Kerry explains, “At Winchcombe Place we get to know each resident well so we can tailor every aspect of their care and lifestyle to their needs and wishes. We’re dedicated to delivering the best in dementia care: every colleague in the home undergoes in-depth dementia training, delivered by their own Dementia Champion.

The lifestyle team organises a wealth of activities designed around your loved one’s interests and hobbies. These range from baking and arts to dancing and cocktail making. Your loved one is always welcome to help with little tasks too, like folding laundry or laying the tables for lunch.

“A wonderful way to enhance wellbeing for people living with dementia is through reminiscence – recalling past experiences or abilities – through a themed event, an activity or casual conversation,” adds Kerry

State-of-the-art dementia design

The dementia suite itself is designed to be a calming home from home where your loved one can feel secure. Every aspect of the suite is designed to the latest dementia-friendly standards, from the colour scheme to the furnishings and lighting.

There are lots of little details that make the difference too. Outside each bedroom is a memory box – a little lockable cabinet to display photos and personal items. When your loved one is moving around the suite by themselves, the box shows them that they’ve found their room. The items inside also help to spark meaningful

conversations between carers and residents.

Delicious meals every day

The suite has a lounge and dining room, complete with a kitchenette, where refreshments are available.

And when it comes to food, head chef, Gary and his team learn all about your loved one’s likes and dislikes and will put their favourite dishes on the menu. At mealtimes there’s plenty of choice, and we’ll happily show your loved one plated meals so they can make an informed decision about what they’d like. Specialist diets are catered for, and we’ll always discreetly help your loved one to eat if they need it. We’ll also sit and chat with them if it encourages them to eat more.

Peace of mind guarantee

“While we are confident we can care for your loved one to the high standards you’d expect, we want you to feel the same,” says Kerry.

“If your loved one joins a Care UK home as a permanent resident, and they or you are not completely happy during their first 28 days or you simply change your mind about the need for a care home, their care contract can be ended with just seven days’ written notice. We really do aim to make things as easy and stress-free as possible.”
