Hunters Care Centre in Cirencester

At Hunters Care Centre, we provide a range of accommodation and services for older people in need of support, from independent living to 24-hour nursing. We also provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community. Hunters is proud to be one of the first homes to be accredited as part of Barchester’s 10-60-06 Dementia Care Programme, reflecting the enhanced level of dementia care and improved quality of life experience by residents here at Hunters.

All of our independent living properties are self-contained and residents have the option of taking advantage of the additional care and support services available in the main home, such as meals and group activities.

Hunters have been approved by the Cinnamon Trust, the national charity for the elderly, those terminally ill and their pets. This means we have been acknowledged by this charity as a pet-friendly home. We have strong links with and regular visits from a local Pets as Therapy dog, Zoolab and Walks with Hawks, all of which residents thoroughly enjoy and get a huge amount of satisfaction from.

Our home is a former country manor house in a stunning position on the Fosse Way on the outskirts of Cirencester. Residents can enjoy the local amenities of Cirencester and the surrounding Cotswolds countryside, whilst also being easily accessible from the M5 and M4. We welcome visitors at any time, so please feel free to pop in or give us a call.

Types of care

The care we provide is delivered in a way that promotes independence for those who live in our home. Where possible, it is important that residents are encouraged to perform daily tasks independently or with minor support. Our services are devised with individualised treatment in mind for each person, so getting to know everyone and understanding their needs is imperative to delivering bespoke, person-centred care.

Our Team

Kathleen Ortiz

General Manager

Hi, my name is Kathleen and I am the General Manager here at Hunters. Welcome to our website!

I am a registered nurse from the Philippines with over twenty years’ experience, both in academic and clinical settings. I have a great passion for psychiatric nursing and preventative nursing.  

I came to the UK In 2009 and started my career in health and social care as a carer and have progressively climbed the ladder to become a UKRN. I have successfully managed and turned around numerous care homes to become fully compliant with national standards and became an Area Compliance Manager, where my role was to focus on supporting care home managers.

I am passionate about delivering high quality, person-centered care to residents and advocate family involvement in their care. I always aim to ensure that our care home will be residents' ‘home from home’, where they can live fully and comfortably.

I joined Barchester in 2018 and I can’t wait to get to know each one of you, so that together we can create the best home, where every resident and family member would love to come ‘home’ to.
