Care Homes in Berkshire

TrustedCare has been created to help you find residential care homes in Berkshire that meet your individual set of needs.

We know that researching the care homes near you can be tiring and time-consuming; our easy to use online directory saves you time by bringing you the information you need in one website.

Each Berkshire care home has its own unique profile page, where you will find the information you need, such as the home’s specialisms, facilities and a gallery. You will also be able to view a link to the home’s most recent report from England’s independent regulator of health and social care, the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Care homes can support a variety of care requirements, often including dementia care and respite care. Browse the profiles below to explore their specialisms which will help you create a shortlist of suitable homes. Unlike a nursing home, residential care homes don't have a Registered Nurse on duty 24 hours a day so if this is a requirement, we recommend that you check out nursing homes in Berkshire instead.

Some of the Berkshire residential care homes in our directory have been awarded star ratings. Derived from independent reviewers’ scores across ten categories including dignity, professionalism and information handling, the star rating gives you valuable insight into how service users and their loved ones rate the care they received in a particular home.

When beginning your search for care homes in Berkshire, you will likely be interested in what the weekly cost may be. In Berkshire care homes cost around £1,215 on average but it is important to note that the cost can greatly vary from home to home. Some of the homes will accept local authority funding which is where your local council covers part or all of your care fees. To find out whether you may be eligible for funding support, please get in touch with your local council to arrange a Financial Assessment.

We know that choosing the right care home can be a daunting task, so if you would like help creating a shortlist of homes that meet your needs, please get in touch; our friendly, experienced team of Advisers will be happy to help you.

Commonly, residents are elderly and their need for care is because of degenerative health conditions associated with ageing e.g. reduced mobility. In a nursing home, care is provided 24-hours a day by Registered Nurses who are supported by Care Assistants. All residents require some element of nursing care such as administration of intravenous medication and/or wound care. Learn more about the difference between a care home and nursing home.
