Wild Acres Care Home provides dementia and residential care to 26 residents over the age of 65 years old who require 24 hrs care in Wokingham, Berkshire. We accommodate long, short and respite stays.
Hello and welcome to Wild Acres Care Home, our warm and friendly home in Wokingham. My name is Janet, I joined this beautiful home in January 2007 as the Registered Manager.
I had previous experience of managing a smaller home for adults with Learning Disabilities and many years’ experience of working in the healthcare sector, also in corporate hospitality and conference management for Pharmaceutical companies in the U.K. and overseas.
Here at Wild Acres, you’ll find a vibrant, supportive and laughter-filled community for both residents and their families. Our home is often complemented on having a very homely feel to it which we pride ourselves on. Our friendly, kind and expert staff are recognised for providing the very best care but don’t take my word for it. Have a look at our inspection report on the Care Quality Commission (CQC) website where in October 2019 we were rated “Excellent” in the Responsive Category, with an overall rating of “Good”.
I understand that choosing a care home for either yourself or a loved one can be a daunting experience which is why our doors are always open inviting you to come and visit us anytime where myself or any one of my team are here to help answer all your questions.
We look forward to Welcoming you to Wild Acres Care Home.
Janet Elliott, Registered Manager.
