Home Care - Good Oaks (Reading)

A little about us

Care at home is a cost-effective way of supporting independence at home by helping you with tasks you are finding difficult.

Good Oaks’ friendly and professional carers prepare meals, administer medication, and help with morning routines. We can visit as little or as often as you like, from one 30 minute visit a week, to around the clock live-in care.

Often, our carers;

  • Help people with their morning routine
  • Prepare meals
  • Administer medication for people who can forget or have an impairment
  • Provide companionship and support for people living alone
  • Help people to regain their independence after a stay in hospital (reablement)
  • Provide personal care
  • Help people visit the shops, attend doctor’s appointments or meet friends
