Meet The Manager

Tammy New is General Manager at Thatcham Court Care Home.

Our modern, purpose-built care home has modern facilities and is situated in the heart of Thatcham and close to many local amenities.

We specialise in the care of people living with dementia and our aim is to create a friendly, caring environment. It's important to find a balance between providing support when it's needed and allowing our residents to be as independent as possible.

At Thatcham Court each resident has a dedicated key carer and named nurse, who will cater our care to suit each person. They will create a personal care plan tailored for each resident that takes into account their life story and routines.

Our Building and Facilities

This purpose-built home has been designed to be dementia friendly from top to bottom. This helps residents to feel safe, move around the home more easily, and have opportunities for stimulation and enjoyment.

We have our own Betty’s Café and Albert’s Bar, plus wallpapers and painted fences to simulate outdoor scenes, gardens, beaches, and libraries.

All of the lounges have a children’s play corner, and there’s a children’s play area outside. This makes it a pleasure for grandchildren to visit, and for the residents to enjoy watching them play.

Creativity is stimulating – our own activities room means residents can enjoy getting stuck into arts and crafts in the perfect environment.

Description

When a new resident arrives they’ll be met by their key carer, who’ll give them a guided tour of their new home. They’ll also tell them about meal times, activities and introduce them to some of the other residents and members of staff.

When a new resident joins us, we make getting to know them and their relatives a top priority. This helps us to build a picture of how they’d like to be supported day-to-day, so we can create a personalised care plan.


The Importance Of Meal Times

Our experienced chefs create balanced meals using only fresh ingredients. Our catering team will meet with new residents soon after they arrive to discuss any dietary requirements or preferences they may have.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Activities Are So Important

Our dedicated activity co-ordinator arranges a variety of daily activities and regular outings. Physical and mental stimulation are especially important for people with dementia, and our activity program offers our residents a welcome variety of options. There's quizzes and crafts, to something as simple and reassuring as a resident holding a friendly hand and chatting over a cup of tea.

We also have exercise to music classes, as well as singing and bingo. Local entertainers regularly perform and there's a gardening club for residents with green fingers. We arrange various days out including trips to the local market, and the local church holds a service for us.
