I was a little apprehensive at first having read and seen on TV the bad reports about care homes. But this place is like a breath of fresh air. Form the moment the lady came to our home to access my wife she lifted a ton of weight of my shoulders, and from that moment everything went from good to super. The treatment my wife received from all the staff and management was superb. I will be forever grateful to all of them for looking after my wife.

My grandmother has been in Oldfield house on respite. The staff I have met have been excellent and hard working. I found the rooms claustrophobic, small, dark and not homely, the down stairs lounge is too small and at times cold. The Television is too small. At times the staff are to busy to interact with the service users. The whole building is like a time warp. Because staff are to busy my grandmothers discharge was bad nothing was ready some of her belongings where missing and she had some clothes that belonged to other people. Whoever does the laundry needs more training on how to wash garments with care.

It is a great place for looking after people, the carers do things that no one else would. I enjoyed the food on my stay here. I would recommend other people to come here.

My nanna had a water infection and was unwell in herself and was very hard to look after and was swearing and a bit unruly due to her infection, but staff were very understanding of the situation and dealt with patience and care.

At Oldfield House there is always a lovely warm welcome from the staff and residents. I don't have any particular time when i visit my mum, it's usually random and the residents always seem to be eating (LOL) which for me is a good sign that my mum is being cared for, just the way she would have wanted. The manager and staff always have time to chat and discuss my mums welfare, I can sleep at night knowing she is ok.

When the home was operated by its previous owners it was always clean and tidy, well maintained and residents were treated with dignity and respect. Since 'Runwood Homes' took over ownership of Oldfield House, the home has in improved in respect of visual impact, the care remains at the previous very high/ excellent standard. This is an outstanding residential home and sets standards for others to follow.
