A BRAND NEW HOME FROM AN EXCEPTIONAL CARE PROVIDER
Discover Portobello Place
Portobello Place is a stunning care home in Chartridge, enjoying beautiful rural views over the Chilterns and arranged over three floors, providing luxurious accommodation to residents looking for exceptional care with added luxury.
The Berkley Care Group has again created a uniquely stylish and homely place for residents to call home and enjoy life to the full, while receiving the expert care they need. Around every corner is something to behold and with the addition of a gym and an artist’s studio it really takes later living to the next level.
MARRYING PIONEERING CARE WITH TRADITIONAL LUXURY
We can help our residents’ decision to move to a care home an easy one by providing clear guidance and a compelling, all-inclusive package.
- All-Inclusive Care Packages: Having everything included in one, easy-to-understand weekly fee is the foundation of our ethos at Portobello Place. By removing the stress associated with personal bookkeeping, we let our residents and their families focus on what is important – spending quality time with each other, engaging with new friends and being a part of a varied and stimulating community. From daily meals to entertainment to wellbeing, everything is taken care of.
- An expert team of caring individuals: We care about people; our residents, their friends and relatives and our staff. All of our employees are hand-picked for their dedication to their role, a naturally compassionate nature and for being the best in the business. We don’t just look at the carers, we are talking about the chefs, our activities manager, hospitality staff and even an artist-in-residence. The result is a varied programme of stimulating activity, run by people who love what they do, in a warm and supportive environment, 365 days a year.

PERSONAL CARE PLANNING AND COVID-SAFE VISITING
Technology and care homes
Harnessing the power of technology is something that we always keen to do if it improves our services, and anything that will add to the lives of our residents is always looked at with open eyes and a keen ear. Whether it is the digitisation of our care plans and staff training, to the acoustic and pressure monitoring of residents’ rooms – if it helps us provide better services and greater stimulation to our residents then we will always look at what is on offer.
STAYING IN TOUCH WITH THOSE WE LOVE
Conversation, stimulation and community
Staying in contact with our loved ones is always important and more so as we age. Portobello Place is a community-minded home, knowing that social interaction with friends, family and new people of all ages keeps the mind active and promotes wellbeing. Our residents are always able to enjoy new ways of communicating, whether it’s in one of our online Zoom quizzes, a spot of karaoke to the more traditional coffee mornings and baby sessions.
STAYING IN TOUCH PHYSICALLY
Ensuring residents are able to meet in person
Our pioneering spirit and determination to enable our residents was on show during the difficult year endured by all in 2020. We adopted new strategies very early on in the year to enable the continuity of communication between our residents and their families and have tried to evolve these as the situation changes.
Providing better care through Technology
From electronic care planning and acoustic monitoring to high-speed internet connection on-demand TV, our care home always moves with the times if it’s for the benefit of our residents.
BEING AT THE HEART OF THE COMMUNITY
Interacting with Chartridge, Chesham and wider society.
Our care home is in Chartridge, Chesham – we are always looking for associations with community groups to build mutually beneficial relationships with.
Whether it’s sports teams, nurseries, schools and colleges, or religious and interest groups, we have always been a welcoming home, always looking to meet interesting people and communities to enrich the lives of everyone at the home.
