We are delighted to welcome you to our care home in Shinfield, Reading where we offer residents the chance to experience luxury living and exceptional care. We provide residential, dementia, respite and day care in a stimulating, beautiful environment. We are very proud of what we have created here and judging by the response we have had, so are our residents, families and our local community.
There are many things which set Shinfield View apart from other care homes. You can find out more about it on this website and in our brochure, which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. There are two main differences which I believe stand out and help to shape our ethos:
Firstly, we offer one clear, all-inclusive weekly price to our residents. This enables them and their families to plan ahead, without worrying about additional or unexpected charges.
Secondly, we are very selective when recruiting our staff and in return for them being the best at what they do, we have made a commitment to pay everyone above the living wage. We believe this is a first in the local market and ensures a happy environment within the home, while recognising the value of the care profession.
Great as our website is in describing Shinfield View, you will only be able to see it for yourself by visiting us in person. Once you are ready to visit, contact me and we will welcome you and give you all the time you need to look around the home and meet the staff. I very much look forward to meeting you soon.

Finding Shinfield View has changed all our lives [the family]. We went from feeling guilty and anxious about moving Mum to residential care, through sheer disbelief that such a place could exist, to delight and relief as we saw her become more settled and begin to enjoy her life more. The staff are exceptional and so amazing at diverting Mum when she becomes anxious and confused. Your team have allowed her to be herself, and not just another dementia patient and the activities you offer are wonderful. I never thought I would see Mum on a horse again!View report
The activities team and staff were determined to make sure people were able to maintain and develop relationships that were important to them. Everything at the service was concentrated on making sure people had as full and happy a life as possible.View report
The success of our care home is the happiness of our residents, many of whom will already be local to the area of Shinfield. We want our home to be as much a part of the community as the local school, shop and pub are, and we want our residents and staff to be involved as much as possible. How can we achieve this?
We visited Shinfield Rangers Football Club and Three Mile Cross Bowling Club to find out. Both clubs were incredibly welcoming and we are delighted to be able to help each of them with sponsorship for the coming year. We wish all teams involved the best of luck and we look forward to visiting some games.
We are always looking for new and different activities for our residents to enjoy; trips out, entertainment in the home, demonstrations and interesting talks. If you would like to get involved, contact our activities and events manager with this button:
