ABOUT READING’S BEST CARE HOME
This wonderful care home is built around a sheltered and sunny garden. It is designed to be a sociable home, with light airy rooms and stunning decor, and our ethos is centred upon compassionate, person-centred care.
Laid out over two easy-access floors, Shinfield View has somewhere for everyone to call their favourite place. Everything has been designed to aid our residents’ ease of movement and enjoyment of their surroundings. The first floor terrace allows access to the garden from both levels of the home, and the ground floor is centred around the social elements of the home, like the bar bistro, the cinema and our wonderful reception hall.

THE AMAZING SHINFIELD VIEW CARE TEAM
Meet some of the team
Shinfield View opened its doors to residents in 2016 and since then has risen to become one of the top care homes in England. Jodie Whatmore and her exceptional team have been awarded outstanding in all five categories of the CQC’s inspection, something that only a handful of homes have achieved. So let’s meet some of them.
SAFE VISITATION AND DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS IN CARE HOMES
Using tech to improve our care
Being a leading care home means always looking at ways in which we can deliver better services and part of that is looking at how the advancement of technology can benefit our residents and their families.
EXPLORING SHINFIELD AND BEYOND
A central point in the community
Shinfield View sits overlooking the green in the village, next to a house which long ago belonged to Catherine of Aragon – you can now see her depicted in our logo and also in Aragon’s bar and bistro within the home.
Our residents have enjoyed rich lives, often deeply involved with their local communities, so enabling them to continue those traditions is very important to them. It may be as simple as waving to the school children as they pass each morning, or visiting the lawn bowls club on a sunny afternoon. Often we will go further afield, to a historic site, or a place of worship in one of the Shinfield fleet, but wherever we do and whatever we do, we always want our residents to continue to be and feel part of the wider community they have enjoyed for so long.
AN AWARD-WINNING CARE HOME GROUP
