A warm welcome to our home

  • Dementia Care
  • Residential Care
  • Respite Care

The home is situated within a mile of Corsham town centre and walking distance of the local GPs’ surgery, Health Centre and the Community Centre.

Patio area at Hayward House

As part of our specialist care service, we have introduced themed areas within the home offering facilities for relatives and friends of our community to use whilst visiting. Residents and families can enjoy a visit to the cinema or enjoy afternoon tea all whilst remaining in the safety of Hungerford House.

Hungerford House Interior

Residents regularly enjoy the daily social activities going on in the central communal areas with the hairdressing salon open during the week. The cinema room is used partly for activities but also for individual and personal use. The relaxing, well tendered and nourished garden is a perfect for meeting family and friends or for relaxing and indulging in some peace and quiet.

Meet the team

The talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals on site daily from our own kitchens. We source quality produce for our excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All-day dining is available for lighter meals and snacks and all dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences.

Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join us. The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on. Our chef bakes every day so there is always a fresh cake to enjoy.

Each of the households has their own small kitchen dining room where residents can take their meals if they wish. Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food and to make snacks whenever they choose.

Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.

Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us at Hungerford House. We have a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.

We are also fortunate to have the support of many volunteers of all ages from the local community, strengthening our links to this thriving market town. Here is a sample of activities on offer:

  • Trips to garden centres, cafés, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
  • Visit from Pets as Therapy Dogs
  • Exercise and wellness activities, for example Seated Yoga, Zumba
  • Board game competitions and quizzes
  • Music therapy sessions
  • Gardening
  • Arts and crafts
  • Communal Church services

With so many well-being activities for body and mind on offer, we also recognise that everyone needs some personal space for relaxation and mindfulness for personal reflection. The cosy lounges offer an opportunity for some quiet time or to host family and friends.

And that’s not all:

We’ve had silent discos, hoe downs, Chinese banquets, Oscar parties and so much more.

Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.

As we are on the outskirts of a market town - within a vibrant community, there's never a dull moment. We run regular activities for all to join in:

  • Coffee mornings
  • Care Home Open Day
  • Summer and Autumn fetes
  • Christmas parties

Head Housekeeper

Gail joined the Trust in 2017 as part of the housekeeping and laundry team. Before the Trust, Gail worked on the MOD site in Corsham from 1987. She started by working as a cleaning operative 2 hours per day whilst her daughter was still at school, and as the years went on she went on several courses to work up to be coming a Cleaning Manager for a team of 35 staff. Soon after that, I became Facilities Manager, looking after the cleaning side of the business, medical waste and general day-to-day business.

She has one daughter, a son in law and four wonderful grandchildren, with her main hobby being her dog called Tillie, who is now 8 years old.
