Meet The Manager

Elizabeth Darley is Home Manager at Hungerford Care Home.

Hungerford Care Home, in Berkshire, is located just two miles from the picturesque market town of Hungerford. Here you’ll find amenities, eateries and river walks. Nearby, enjoy the stunning scenery of the North Wessex Downs and the sites and shops of Newbury.

With 52 bedrooms offering nursing and dementia care, we think carefully about the type of room each resident needs.

Our bedrooms are set across two floors, and each wing has its own light and airy lounge and dining room with views of the gardens, meaning peace and tranquillity is never far away. We also have a multi-sensory room, which provides a relaxing space for those with sensory impairment. All furnishings and decor throughout the home are of an exceptionally high standard. 

We also have a well-maintained garden and greenhouse with wheelchair access. There is a mature orchard, sheltered seating area and secure sensory garden suitable for residents with dementia.

Respite Care Yes

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

Infection Control Initiatives in place
safe-tick Infection Control Training Our staff are trained to use measures which prevent and control infections.
safe-tick Infection Screening We are using technology to screen for infections & monitor symptoms.
safe-tick Virus Testing We are testing for viral infection when symptoms present within our care setting.
Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space
Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

With 52 bedrooms offering nursing and dementia care, we think carefully about the type of room each resident needs. Many of our rooms are en-suite and there are bath and shower rooms in each wing for residents to use with or without assistance.

We understand that moving into Hungerford will be a considerable transition, but one we try to make feel as easy as possible. Your room is your own personal space, which is why we encourage you to personalise it if you like, by hanging your favourite pictures or bringing small pieces of furniture.

We encourage people to make the rooms their own. Quite a few of our residents will ask us to take out pieces of our furniture to make room for some of their own from home. The choice is yours.

When you arrive at Hungerford, we will work with you to develop a personalised care plan that will include everything from your hobbies, exercise, and dietary preferences, to any health issues you might have. It will determine the level and type of care you receive. This can vary from minimal residential care to full support.

Don’t worry, if your needs or preferences change, we’ll change your care plan too. Care plans are monitored on a daily basis and reviewed monthly. Changes are also made if there are significant changes to a resident’s condition.

We try to avoid moving residents from their rooms if possible. However, if a resident’s care needs change – for example, a nursing care resident began to need high level dementia nursing care – it might be necessary to move a resident to a room in a different wing.
