Our care

At Broadmead Residential Home

We offer residential care for people who need additional support, find difficult or lonely living in their own home or those who require dementia care or support with their mental health. We may also be able to offer short-term support for families that require respite, day care or convalescence care.

Specialist Dementia Care

Based in Woolton Hill, Newbury

Broadmead Residential Home specialises in providing care and support for people with Dementia. Having dementia champions within the home, we are used to dealing with the confusion and communication issues that can arise for people with dementia. We focus on the unique needs and abilities of every individual, ensuring that they are treated with dignity and respect at every step.

As well as offering dementia-friendly settings with opportunities to reminisce, our activities coordinator ensures that residents have the opportunity for sensory stimulation, using music, smells, textures and exercises to help stimulate the memory, ease confusion and prompt communication.

Our person-centred approach

Our team takes a person-centred approach to care and care planning. We understand that everyone’s needs are different, which is why we work closely with residents and their families to understand their needs and develop a personalised support plan, which evolves as their needs change.

Residential care

A range of communal spaces for socialising and activities

As well as offering dementia care, many of our residents choose to move to Broadmead Restidential home to improve their quality of life, reduce loneliness or gain support with daily living tasks. Residential care takes away the burden of tasks such as cooking and cleaning and allows residents to enjoy the company of others.

Our safe and person-centred approach values independence while offering a comfortable alternative to living alone, which also meets the medical, emotional and physical needs of the people who chose to live with us.

Mental Health Care

Practical and emotional support that is tailored around the specific needs

Broadmead provides care to those who have diagnosed mental health conditions. We offer practical and emotional support that is tailored around the specific needs of the individual. Our staff team is trained to look for signs of change or deterioration in these conditions and to adjust care plans to offer prompt and safe treatment. To support this, we have close connections with mental health teams with trained Mental health nurses and consultants who can provide support and guidance when needed.

Whether there’s a history of mental health conditions or not, physical changes associated with getting older can impact wellbeing, making a holistic approach vital. At Broadmead, we work hard to ensure that residents stay active and avoid the social isolation and loneliness that are a common cause of depression in older people.

Residents are treated with respect and dignity and every effort is made to meet each individual’s needs. There are daily activities for the residents and help is
give to those who are less able so that they can participate. The food is excellent and plentiful. When my mother-in-law woke in the middle of the night she was often brought some sandwiches and a cup of tea!
Their medical care is excellent and any health concerns are quickly referred to the doctor or nursing team who respond very quickly.
