Review of Oak Lodge Care Home on Friday 18 October 2013 by Kathryn B (Daughter-in-law of resident)

We have been impressed by the friendliness, cheerfulness, and efficiency of not only the carers but every member of staff. They have done their very best to ensure that my father-in-law is content. He enjoys company and loves to get an affectionate kiss on the cheek from the carers.

Review of Oak Lodge Care Home on Thursday 11 July 2013 by Nigel F (Son of resident)

Excellent care over what was sometimes a difficult 18 months. Staff superb but sometimes under staffed. A bit more investment and it would be perfect. Sometimes coping with second hand or repaired (often) equipment.

Review of Oak Lodge Care Home on Tuesday 18 December 2012 by Wendy B (Relative of resident)

The staff have looked after our dear aunt for the past year or so. They continue to give us support and always have time for us to discuss any issues they might have in the care of our aunt. We are very grateful for the way they care for Joan.
