Mum has been in two other care homes before being here and one of them I refused to let her stay in after a few days. he care, food and attitude of staff is so much above the previous homes. If we are not happy about something the staff are always willing to help i.e mum struggles with coordination of fork to mouth, the staff now give her specially designed spoons to encourage independence.

This home is very friendly to both residents and relatives. The staff are open to listening to any requests that may help towards the care of residents, if we (the relatives) have any concerns, they will usually listen and try to help. The home has a very welcoming feel about it and I would recommend it.

Last Summer, when my family were very stressed and worried about mum, following her fall and severe heart attack, we we welcomed and reassured by Margaret and her staff. I am particularly pleased with the cheerful atmosphere at The Oaks, thanks to the friendly and helpful staff. Also I am impressed with the variety of activities provided whether it be a quiz, craft work, bingo or the singers brighten an afternoon for the staff and residents alike. Long may it continue.

I would recommend the home to others defiantly. My husband and i are very satisfied, he has lived here for 3 years and I have no need to complain about the home. Have not met the new home manager!

Have to say so far care has been beyond reproach. Carers have been exceptional and have had staff come in on their day off to assist with mother and take her to the shower and dry her hair as she is unable to easily sit up so the hair dresser has problems. The nursing staff have also shown proven ability in their dedication to assist and have on all occasions been honest and dedicated towards the care, both holistic and medical.
