Residential care home Winchester, Hampshire


Brendoncare is a registered charity, dedicated to improving the quality of life for older people through our 10 care homes and 90 friendship and wellbeing clubs. Brendoncare Meadway, our popular care home in Winchester, provides residential care for 13 residents in St Cross, enabling older people to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives.

About Meadway

Combining warmth and community spirit with caring expertise, the home enables residents to be cared for, secure in the knowledge that their individuality will be respected however frail they may become.

Brendoncare Meadway provides a home where older people can be helped to live as normally as possible and where the emphasis is on quality and enjoyment of life. The staff offer good care and are proud to do so in an atmosphere where residents can feel they are still in charge of their own lives.


“I wanted to write and thank you and your wonderful team for all the dedication and care they showed Dad during his life at Meadway. He enjoyed his life at Meadway and felt very at home and comfortable there. Your team looked after him extraordinarily well, and I never heard him say a bad word about Meadway. We were very touched at the gentle, patient and caring treatment he received whilst we were there in the last week, and I know it will have made his last days easier to bear. The team are a great credit to Brendoncare Meadway and we will always be thankful that he was under your care.”
Family of resident, May 2016

“I would like to tell you how wonderful Kate and the staff have been to our family, and to praise the care being given. I have a very aged (nearly 98 years old) cousin who is more like a mother to me and to my family. D. herself chose about 3/4 years ago, having lived independently, to live at Meadway. She had looked around but chose Meadway as she liked the atmosphere. I have to admit to being surprised as my Mother for her last year, had been in a much more luxurious (and much more expensive!) care home and on a first view Meadway seemed rather simple. I’ve soon learned that D. had made an excellent choice and the ethos of Brendoncare is second to none.”

Respite Care

Brendoncare Respite Care (Winchester)

Do you care for someone who needs support while you go on holiday or have a bit of time to focus on your needs? Perhaps you need some short-term care or some support while you recover from a hospital stay or operation? We can help.

Our approach to respite care is simple; a care and support plan devised around your needs and a warm welcome to our home, however long you are staying with us. Plus, there are options to extend your visit, if you feel you would like to stay with us longer, so you can take as long as you need to recuperate.

At all of our homes there is a full range of activities on offer for everyone to enjoy or quieter spaces for more tranquil moments. Food is an important part of every day and our chefs spend time with residents, finding out their likes and dislikes. While every Brendoncare home is different, the care provided by each is firmly based on the values of kindness, care, choice and community.

Get in touch today and find out how we can help.
