Meet The Manager

Ronnie Wright 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.

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.

Description

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.

Description

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.

The Importance Of Meal Times

We firmly believe that when you eat well, you live well too. This is a core part of our brighterkind philosophy of care, centering on good nutrition and the importance of mealtimes as a social occasion.

Our dining rooms are always set to restaurant standards, so residents need worry about nothing but enjoying the food.

Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Our residents get involved in helping to plan our menus, too.

The dining rooms always become hubs of conversation and laughter, giving even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise. Whether it’s tea and cakes in the garden or a roast each Sunday, we encourage our residents to make the most of living in an active and friendly environment.

Of course, when, where and who you eat with is entirely up to you. Friends and family can join you as often as you’d like (at a small charge), and our extras menu gives you the option to order snacks at any time of the day. We also have a kitchenette where residents can bake cakes or make a snack.
