Outstanding Residential Care Home in Reading

Welcome to your home

Moving to Shinfield View is a smooth, simple process.  You can rest assured that we will help you at every step of the way.  Once new residents arrive, settling in is made fun, with regular visits from the team and a gentle acquaintance with your fabulous new surroundings.

We'll show you around the light and airy bar & bistro where you can enjoy, well - anything you like - from our fully-stocked bar or our talented kitchen, it's time to relax and meet the Shinfield family, at your own pace and in your own time.  Look out on or take a walk around our beautiful landscaped gardens and lodge, or pop into the library to pick up a new read.

Our team is focused on supporting residents to enjoy the life they want to, not one that's been decided for them.  We're here to listen, help and have fun.

Getting outside the home is important to our residents and to us.  To make group excursions, maybe to a local site of interest, pub or museum, we have the mighty minibus - comfortable, safe and quiet, it ferries us all over the place serenely.  For those more private or special journeys, we have the chauffeur-driven Mercedes - the choice is yours.
