Care homes and guidance

Visit the Regional Care website to read the The Berkshire Care Directory which lists all the care homes in Berkshire and offers useful advice.

Types of housing

Different types of housing can cater for different levels of needs.

  • If your needs are not high you may find that sheltered or extra care housing is the right choice for you
  • Residential or nursing care homes are available for people with high levels of need, where 24 hour personal care support is available

  • Range in size from very small homes with few beds to large scale facilities
  • Offer care and support throughout the day and night
  • Staff help with washing, dressing, at meal times and with using the toilet

Search the directory for care homes.

Other homes are also registered to provide specialist care for other types of needs such as physical disabilities, mental health health problems or dementia. 

They do this by providing appropriate services and facilities to meet those special needs.

Search the directory to find specialist care homes.
