Chimney Court - A2Dominion Extra Care SchemeDignity in Care

Chimney Court is an extra care sheltered scheme based in Tilehurst, Reading.

It offers a selection of self-contained one and two bedroom flats designed to help residents retain as much independence and control of their lives as possible.

Residents can continue to enjoy their social pursuits in a safe and secure environment, giving peace of mind to themselves and their families.

Our extra care schemes are designed to provide a real alternative to residential care for frail and vulnerable older persons. Our care and support packages offer flexibility for those who are finding their homecare services provision no longer practical nor economical.

These providers have met quality standards or represent value for money over and above our expected standards. We are confident to commission with all of our framework providers however when commissioning care on behalf of people in Reading we go to our Gold Standard providers first.

Dignity in Care - The Dignity Charter consists of 12 pledges towards dignity in care. Organisations providing care services in Reading are invited to sign up.
