Job Description

At Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury our dedicated team will help your loved one to continue living a busy and fulfilling life.

Our purpose-built care home in Newbury opened in April 2014 and provides a full range of care services for older people, including residential, short-term respite care and even sensitive end of life care.

When you first visit Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Think five star hotel rather than care home. We believe that living in a care home should be just as good as living in your own home – in fact, we strive to make it even better. So close by reception you’ll find our hair and beauty salon, where residents can be regularly pampered; there’s a coffee shop where they can relax with visitors over a cup of coffee and a slice of something delicious. There’s even a cinema, where residents can catch the latest releases and Hollywood classics.

Scattered around the rest of Winchcombe Place are other great spaces for relaxing or doing activities, including a library, vintage-themed lounge and an arts and crafts room.
