Our Care at Hungerford Care Home

We offer brighterkind care – a person-centred approach that is delivered through quality care, recreation and activities, and food and dining.

A resident comments on carehome.co.uk: “Having been first admitted on a temporary to discharge basis Dad was adamant he did not want to be in a care facility. Within a couple of days he loved it so much he wanted to stay permanently. We arranged for Mum to be transferred from her temporary facility and they are very happy. It is wonderful and supportive. All staff are very helpful and incredibly caring. Staff are amazing with them both. The location and grounds are wonderful and the activities organised are being thoroughly enjoyed.”

Key Information

We provide care for those paying for their own care and in some cases where there might also be a contribution from the local authority or NHS Trust. For those paying for their own care we provide an indicative weekly fee.  For those fully or partly funded by public funds, we may require an additional top up contribution.

It’s important to get professional advice on the best way to fund the cost of care and we suggest that you take advice from a care fees expert to make sure that you have explored all the options available to you.

In order to make life easier we have contacted a national care fees planning specialist, Symponia who are dedicated to the financial issues of later life, in particular the payment of care fees. Through Symponia’s network of carefully selected and qualified financial advisers they offer you and/or your family member empathic, bespoke advice on the best way to fund weekly care fees. This approach ensures that not only are all our residents and their families aware of the legislation and how it works but they are able to explore all the financial options available to them.

It should be noted that brighterkind and Symponia operate completely independently with no commission or financial benefit to brighterkind as a result of your conversation or contract.
