Feel at home…
Be part of our family
Great Oaks Care Home has 3 floors, with each floor offering several cosy lounges, dining and café areas for residents to enjoy. Each floor is its own community so you, or your loved one will feel part of a smaller family unit and can make friends with other residents easily.
Feel comfortable knowing that you, or your loved one has their own spacious private bedroom and en-suite wet room. We offer various styles of rooms to suit your taste and budget and encourage you to bring in some of your own possessions to help you settle in from day one.
Relax in our communal areas
Our dining rooms are bright and airy and are a lovely space to socialise with other residents during mealtimes. Each floor also has several cosy lounge areas where you can catch up with your friends or family, or simply sit and enjoy some quiet time, read a good book or catch up on your latest TV shows.
Take some time out for you
Take advantage of our on-site Pamper room and book to have your hair done by our visiting hairdresser. If you prefer spending your time outdoors, feel free to enjoy our beautiful landscaped courtyard and gardens with raised flower beds. We encourage our residents to join in with some potting and planting in the warmer months.
The care we provide
If you are finding aspects of day-to-day life at home difficult, we offer residential care which allows you to be independent for longer within the comfort of a home environment. We tailor our care plans to suit you, or your loved one; offering as much or as little care as needed.
We provide qualified nurses on-hand 24 hours a day to plan and deliver the very best nursing care and specialist support to you, or your loved one. Our nurses are fully supported by a team of care assistants to ensure personal care is delivered accordingly to every person’s individual care plan and needs.
Our care home was purpose built to be dementia friendly from the layout of the building, to sensitive décor and interior design to provide a familiar and safe environment. We get to know each resident, to create a care plan as individual as they are.
We are here to support you, or your loved one. We listen to your wishes and preferences and take these into account when creating a care, or end of life plan. We can help manage pain and other afflicting symptoms to ensure you, or your loved one are always cared for with respect and dignity.
We offer short-term care for when you need it most. Whether it be for a short break or to aid recovery following an operation, or from being unwell we can provide personalised care for a few weeks while you recover.

We love good food
Good, nutritional home-made food for our residents is an extremely important aspect of the care we provide at Great Oaks Care Home. Our in-house chefs take into consideration residents’ specific requirements to ensure that not only are we producing balanced meals that appeal to the taste buds, but also have a positive impact on their health too.
