Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Christine Tyrrell here at Murdoch House Care Home in Wokingham, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Residential care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they're more frail.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at Murdoch House Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

"It was very concerning when at the age of 102 my Mother had to move from her care home due to closure. We need not have worried, Murdoch House provided a most caring and considerate environment.
Our thanks to the whole team.
Kind Regards"

John Young, Son of Resident/Service User at Murdoch House Care Home
