Austen House is a purpose-built care home in Reading set in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of the town, and gets the best of both worlds – there are plenty of local amenities, but it is within easy reach of Reading, Wokingham and London.
Staff are very much focused on residents’ personal needs at Austen House, where nurses are on duty 24-hours a day to provide top quality elderly care.
Staff at Austen House’s specialised Memory Lane Community (for people living with dementia) have been awarded certificates by the Alzheimer's Society for passing a course aimed at enhancing their understanding of dementia. It involves improved insight into dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, and learning that feelings matter most – what the individual is feeling at any given moment in time is the most important thing.
Austen House welcomes enquiries and is pleased to show people who want advice or support around if they would like to drop in to investigate for themselves.
