Meet The Manager

Samantha Bell is Home Manager at Woodbury House.

A real home has as much personality as the people who live there. That’s why Woodbury House is a place you’d be proud of and happy to live in – just as you would your own home. 

Woodbury House Care Home is situated near Swallowfield, Berkshire. A picturesque countryside location, we are not far from the shops and amenities of Wokingham, Reading and Camberley.

Our care home is set across three floors, and there are communal lounges and dining rooms throughout the home, as well as ample outdoor space, meaning peace and quiet is never far away.

We offer brighterkind care – a person-centred approach that is delivered through quality care, recreation and activities, and food and dining.

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 Contact Tracing We have measures in place to identify and trace contact between people in our care setting.
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 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.

Our Building and Facilities

Whether you’re entertaining your family and friends, spending time with other residents or taking part in activities, our living rooms are ideal. It’s always up to you whether you want to get involved with activities – you’re more than welcome to sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

Spread out across the home there are two communal lounges where we hold one-to-one activity sessions, watch films, and relax together.

Woodbury House is surrounded by an acre of lovely gardens. Our well-maintained lawns, flowerbeds, mature trees and large patio area are a big part of life here. The garden is also home to some of our pets – we currently have badgers and rabbits.

Residents love to relax outdoors and watch the world go by. We also have a summer house that is wheelchair accessible. We regularly serve afternoon tea on the patio when the weather is fine. The landscaped grounds are beautifully maintained and are a pleasure to walk around. In the summer we hold many activities outdoors, including garden parties and barbeques.

Description

With 37 bedrooms offering residential, nursing and dementia care, we think carefully about the type of room each resident needs. Half of the rooms are en-suite and there are bath and shower rooms for residents to use with or without assistance.

All our rooms have recently been refurbished to the highest specifications with new furniture, soft furnishings and fittings. We have designed the rooms with your comfort in mind. Your bedroom furniture consists of: an appropriate bed suitable to your needs, wardrobe, bedside table with lockable drawer, armchair and other furniture suitable to the size of the room. Your bed linen and towels are provided by the home.

We understand that moving into Woodbury House 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.

Description

We’re a diverse group, from different backgrounds and with different roles, but we all have something fundamental in common – every single one of us is passionate about care.

It’s almost like a sixth sense: people who are always on hand to help, but with enough empathy to know when to leave you be; people who don’t have favourites, and who are always busy creating the little moments of kindness that make a real difference to life here.

As well as our team of carers and nurses, the GP visits every week. We also have local dentists, opticians, chiropodists, physiotherapists and hairdressers who provide services to residents at the home. And everyone gets stuck in together – whether to serve breakfast or help out with an activity.

The Importance Of Meal Times

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

Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. And we can cater to any dietary or health requirements, however complex.

We have two dining rooms on and meals are prepared by our Chef at the home. Our dining rooms always become hubs of conversation and laughter, and mealtimes give even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise. Whether it’s Fish Friday or a summer barbeque, we encourage our residents to make the most of living in a friendly environment. There will be plenty of people to meet, and a lot of stories to share.

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.

Activities Are So Important

A willingness to get involved and try new things is something we see time and again, once people are given the opportunity. We have a dedicated Recreation and Activities Coordinator who oversees everything, but all our team regularly brainstorm new ideas, too. Our residents also have the opportunity to vote on their suggestions at our monthly activity meetings, so we can be sure everyone’s looking forward to something, every day.

Activities vary each week: from pet therapy and reading club, to music exercises and knitting. And everything’s flexible – if it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day.

We’ve built excellent links to the community, allowing residents to continue their lives outside the home with ease. We take visits to places of interest, cafes, garden centres, and local parks every two weeks for those who fancy it.

Every brighterkind home now has a Magic Moments Club which provides a vast range of activities and fun things to do that are open to all of our residents:
