Located in the quiet village of Sonning Common, in the heart of the Chilterns, Abbeycrest is one of Caring Homes’ newest care homes in Berkshire, offering exceptional residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.
Abbeycrest provides residents with a true Care Pathway by offering a full suite of residential, nursing and dedicated dementia care. As such, residents may rest safe in the knowledge that the home can cater for their care needs both now and in the future.
The home’s bedrooms and communal areas have been designed and furnished to the highest standard, utilising bespoke materials, with a blend of traditional fabrics, wall papers and furnishings to create a real ‘home from home’ ambience. Every bedroom features an en-suite bathroom and many have patio access to the landscaped gardens or Juliet balconies overlooking the nearby woodland. Communal living is enhanced with kitchenettes in the dining areas, where residents can relax together over a tea or coffee.
Abbeycrest Care Centre’s dementia care provision has been designed to meet the University of Stirling’s standards, which are widely acknowledged as providing the best living environment for people living with dementia. Stirling’s Dementia Services Development Centre is renowned as the world leader in this field. The Stirling approach ensures that residents are able to move freely around the home, with bedrooms and communal areas appropriately laid out and clearly signposted to minimise confusion or disorientation. Each bedroom features a memory box by its front door, where mementos from a resident’s life help to personalise their room and also remind staff and visitors of the individual’s life story.
Abbeycrest Care Centre is ideally equipped to provide residential support for elderly people living with different types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and Korsacoff’s syndrome. However, staff never lose sight of the fact that, first and foremost, Abbeycrest is home to our residents.
The retirement home offers a full range of residential, nursing and specialist dementia support, including trial stays, respite breaks and convalescent care as well as long term care. Residents are encouraged to bring important personal possessions to personalise their rooms. Abbeycrest Care Centre operates an open visiting policy, where residents and loved ones may visit at convenient times. In common with all of our homes, Abbeycrest’s manager has a qualified nursing background. The home is fully registered with the Care Quality Commission and has ISO9001/2000 and Hospitality Assured accreditation.

Currently there is a vacancy for a manger which is why grading has been part reduced, although temporary managers are trying hard to resolve issues. Occasional issues are always addressed promptly. Junior staff will report/comment on short comings of seniors e.g agency staff." - Robin H

Our priority is his happiness whilst we are away on holiday and although nervous on his first visit, when we collected him he was full of praise for all the care team and he was relaxed and happy. The choice of menu was also excellent. The rooms are light and have every amenity; he fell out of bed twice on the first visit, so pressed the call button and was helped straight away." - Sandra C
