Welcome to Chiltern Court Care Home
You'll find Chiltern Court in Wendover, Buckinghamshire. Around the clock we provide high quality residential and nursing care, specialist care for those with dementia, and respite care to give home carers a much needed break.
We also offer end-of-life care at a time residents and their families need specialist help and support; and specialist care for individuals of any age with learning and physical disabilities.
Residents at Chiltern Court have varying needs from specialist nursing support to general assistance with everyday living.
Our home is nestled at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, and offers spectacular views in a safe environment. To help individuals feel at home, we welcome residents to bring their pets with them.
We also have our newly opened Chiltern Mews - this is made up of 5 bedrooms all bursting with character from the original part of the building.
Residents pursue their hobbies in our communal and quiet lounges - perhaps watching TV, listening or quietly reading. Our landscaped garden with patio and gazebo is a great place for people to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun.
All these areas are used for relaxing, socialising, and are great for spending time with friends and families when they visit.
Life at Chiltern Court Care Home
Our activities coordinator meets each new resident to discuss their social interests. There's always something going on from quizzes to hand massages, and music therapy to flower arranging.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
My mother has stayed here for the last four years and we are delighted with the quality of care she is given. Mum has had a few problems to overcome and the Management and staff have always shown the upmost care and compassion for her.
My dad and I are ever grateful to you all for caring for my mum. She has deteriorated this past year and lapses of memory loss. She has just had a UTI and she is very confused. Today is the first day she seems settled and calm. She has a lot of anger and bad past memories. She talks yo the wall or her clown toy, rather than us. My dad and I don't mind, we've got used to it. Thank you for all your help and kindness, the staff are so kind and sincere.
Mother has been here for four years and has been well looked after.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Emily Hewitt, Domestic Assistant at Chiltern Court Care Home in Wendover has been crowned the Regional Support Team Member of the Year for the South East of England in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this Year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Emily demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Support Team Member of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including demonstrating a high level of support to colleagues, residents and families through their everyday tasks, alongside their commitment to development and their attitude to Making a Difference.
Emily was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “Emily is a fantastic all-rounder here at Chiltern Court. She has taken on a number of additional roles which run alongside her day to day job. She helps her colleagues with their online learning, is a brilliant advocate of the home and has conducted numerous successful show rounds to prospective residents and their families.”
As the winner for South East England, Emily is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. She will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Iain Edgley, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Health Care Midshires, said: “Emily is dedicated and committed to Chiltern Court not only in her role as a Domestic Assistant but as a fantastic support to her colleagues. We all know how difficult it can be to learn something new, and Emily is always there as a guiding hand regardless as to whether it’s a team member she’s helping, a resident, relative or prospective family. Well done Emily this is a well-deserved award!”
Jo Vasey, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in South East England, said: “Emily is a fantastic asset. The endorsement she’s had from her colleagues shows just how much she’s valued in her region. You are a worthy winner Emily.”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to approximately 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Carer/Support Worker of the Year’ to ‘Personal Activities Lead Champion’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
