Are you looking for Care Advice in Goring, Berkshire?

The Care Hub in Goring is ‘the place’ for people to congregate in Goring, Berkshire,  if they are looking for adult support, company or advice on any aspects of care in the home. We are open Monday – Saturday 9am-5pm

What does the hub provide?

We run a range of clubs and educational sessions and are of course dementia friendly. We are a safe and caring environment for anyone needing that little helping hand or someone to turn to. We are looking forward to seeing our more senior community members back out and about in the village. They are missed and such an invaluable part of the village fabric and community.

We work with multiple agencies, providers and charities to give our community easy and regular access to what support is available. We hope to make all this information and support for easier to find and tap into via a single point of access.

We support families who are seeking care options for their loved ones and it has long been an ambition to have this ‘hub’ where we can meet as many people from the community as we can.

Melanie Meads, founder of Q1Care, is an active member of the Gap community and has been involved in many community services over the years, from being a school governor, working for a couple of the local businesses and being the treasurer for the scouts for a time. She is a dementia champion and is a member of the Dementia Action Alliance group in Reading. She offers regular dementia friends sessions and is an active fund raiser for the Alzheimer’s Society as well as supporting Marie Curie and other important charities.

Melanie says: “It is an honour and a privilege to be at the heart of caring for some inspirational individuals and we are so excited to now have a community hub in the village. We can’t wait to meet you and if we can assist you and your family, don’t hesitate to get in touch either by popping in or calling our head office on 01189 323 865. Alternatively you can email Melanie.Meads@q1care.co.uk
