Our Home Manager – Jodie Whatmore

I feel so fortunate, honoured and passionate to be the Manager here at Shinfield View. I have worked in Health and Social Care for the past 10 years and have been here at Shinfield View for 3 years. Our residents are at the heart of everything that we do and I see everyone here as part of my extended family. I am very much looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities that this role will present and to continue working with our fantastic team!

It’s the little details that impress our visitors so much – the time that staff are able to devote to the residents, the amazing standard of the food that is available to everyone and most of all, the ‘calm professionalism’ of the team.

This is what reassures new residents when they arrive at the home and, in turn, their loved ones, making the transition so much easier for everyone. Once settled in, it is never long before a new resident feels able to call Shinfield View ‘home’.

Being able to call somewhere ‘home’ is universally important, but especially so when choosing a care home. That is why it is our main focus and why our residents are so happy here. Please take a look at our reviews on carehome.co.uk to reassure yourself and then I look forward to meeting you very soon.

The Teams

Training is hugely important in our care home and our staff are some of the best trained in the business. But equally essential is having the right people.

If our team is happy, motivated and well rewarded, our residents receive the best care because there is no worry in the home and the focus is on nothing but providing excellent care and having fun. But we can’t do this without excellent people. From our manager to our housekeeper, we are always looking for the right people to work with us, not just someone who wants a job. Our teams are dedicated to care and caring.


Everyone is geared towards the healthcare of our residents and the team includes our Health and Wellbeing Personal Trainer and Workplace Mental Health First Aider, and we also receive regular visits from our GP, chiropodist and optician among others.

Beauty & Wellbeing

Everything we do is concerned with wellbeing, but not all of it is directly related to our physical health. Our beauty and wellbeing team is there to focus on making residents feel good through looking good and having confidence in oneself.

Catering & Events Team

With a fine-dining room and a special brigade of chefs, we need the best people to make it all happen. Our catering and events team are there to make sure that everything that happens in the bar, bistro and at events is entertaining, delicious and fun. We feel that having dedicated hospitality professionals makes all the difference.

Admin & Housekeeping

It is so important that any care home runs like clockwork. The more efficient a home is, the more focus there can be on the things that matter the most, namely time spent with our wonderful residents and their families. Our organised, hardworking admin team make sure all of our t’s are crossed and are i’s are dotted!

The Shinfield family

Person-centred care is the foundation of everything we do at Shinfield View care home. The choices of our residents and achieving positive outcomes are what drives us.

An important part of being able to deliver exceptional care is in getting to know each resident and their family and friends. We love taking the time out to listen to our residents’ stories and hear all about their loved ones over a cup of tea.

Not only do we have wonderful residents, but also incredible staff. Delivering the best care available is our overarching purpose and we can only do it with the very best people in our team.

Residents of Shinfield View

Our care and the environment of the home means that loneliness and isolation simply don’t happen. Isolation among older people in society is a growing problem and we are out to change that.

Many of our residents would have never thought of themselves in a ‘care home’ environment, it’s just not something that we talk about, is it? But once they have been here for even a short stay, we know that most people will either be back soon or moving in permanently. That’s because this home is not what people think of as a care home. This is a special place.. as two of our married residents put it “It’s the most comfortable place we’ve ever lived in, it feels like home.”

I had a secret dread of going to a care home, based on my late mothers’ experiences. I needn’t have worried. Shinfield View is what they say in their booklet; ‘luxury living and exceptional care’. All the staff were so friendly and caring. In fact, the calm professionalism of all the staff was really impressive. Shinfield View leaves an excellent example that other care homes should follow.


Friends & Family

My mum moved into Shinfield View in November and in just four weeks we (the family) feel we are coming home when we visit Mum. The staff are friendly, caring and I feel we have known them for years! I feel such peace with Mum staying here – I know she is being so well cared for both emotionally and physically. Thank you.


Our Care Team

I enjoy being able to give the residents my time, and being able to build wonderful relationships, and listen to their amazing stories. Being there when they arrive at the home and being able to reassure them. I feel that my job is so much more than ensuring the home is kept clean and tidy, nothing is too much trouble. Being part of the Shinfield View team is such a lovely reward, and knowing you’ve made someone happy and comfortable.
