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.

The staff and management are first class and made her stay exceptionally good. Their care and support goes beyond Mum to her immediate family which helped us be with her at the end. She was treated with care and love and her comfort and dignity was preserved at all times. Not only are the care staff fantastic but also the support staff who keep the home spotlessly clean. In my view it is a template as to how first-class care is provided.View report
The registered manager and staff showed exceptional skill and innovative thinking when looking for ways to reduce risks for people, whilst encouraging and enabling maximum independence.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:
Community professional: "In my opinion the service delivers top quality care. I have worked in my field for many years and in many care homes. I would state without hesitation that Shinfield View delivers the best quality care I have experienced anywhere, in every aspect, from the food, to the quality and variety of the activities, the access to a range of professional services, the physical environment of the building, its cleanliness and attractiveness and the kind-hearted staff who work there.View report
