Review of Oak House on Thursday 13 February 2014 by Pat T (Daughter of resident)

I am so pleased with the level of care provided by the first floor at Oak House for my mother. She has been there for 15 months and the staff are wonderful. She has gained weight and now looks much healthier, she loves the food! It is a warm, safe and caring environment and I have peace of mind as I know she could not be anywhere better.

Review of Oak House on Tuesday 4 February 2014 by Margaret G (Respite resident)

Sympathetic realistic assistance in a short stay recuperation period to enable a regaining of some energy to continue life with as much independence as possible in the near future, it is hoped. Cannot say a big enough appreciative thanks. Truly. Returned to home address safely on January 13th. My son took me home and shopped for food to keep me going for a while.

Review of Oak House on Thursday 9 January 2014 by Barbara B (Daughter of resident)

Due to on-going medical problems my mother only spent a brief time on 'the highway' but in that short time I was really impressed by all the staff - the facilities: everyone smiled. The manager on the floor was fantastic - she deserves a medal. I'm sure the staff take their lead from her, can't praise Oak House enough its the only place I'd want to go if ever I was in need of rehab. Well done.

Review of Oak House on Tuesday 10 December 2013 by Debbie W (Father-in-law in care)

The management supervisors on the 1st floor and the carers look after my father-in-law so well. He has so many illnesses which is difficult for anybody to handle but these carers understand my father-in-law's needs and they are there for him. They also can see straightaway if a doctor needs to be called or an ambulance. My husband and I would not know what to do without them, they deserve a big thank you.

Review of Oak House on Wednesday 6 November 2013 by Charles Willmot (Nephew of resident)

My mother recently broke her hip while I was visiting her from New Zealand where I now live. Whilst here, I decided to visit my Aunt Gladys at Oak House. I was pleased to find her in good spirits, clean, and obviously well cared for and happy. I was impressed with the standard of presentation of the premises as well as the friendly staff. I especially enjoyed talking to Fiona and Muriel.

Review of Oak House on Wednesday 10 July 2013 by Carol Pearson (Daughter of resident)

My father dreaded not being independent. He originally went into Oak House for intense rehab but was too frail to return home. The staff in Oak House (first floor) were always kind, considerate and very respectful of him. He didn't mix well with the other residents, he has always enjoyed his own company but they still made every effort to involve him in activities without being patronising. I couldn't care for him 24 hours, they became part of our family and supported us all.

Review of Oak House on Wednesday 10 July 2013 by Shelia Cousens (Wife of resident)

My husband was a resident at Oak House for a year until his death on 17th June 2013. Throughout that time he was cared for with respect for his dignity and with great tenderness. There were several changes of staff but all of them especially those who were there at the beginning, treated him extremely well. They were always welcoming when I visited him usually every other day.

Review of Oak House on Thursday 30 May 2013 by Peter B (Son of resident)

The best facilities I have ever seen in a care home. The staff were absolutely superb, very caring. Looked after my mother above and beyond their job requirements. The staff really cared for my mother, and she was very happy there. I couldn't wish for better staff, or their care and attention. I would recommend the home and especially the staff to anybody.
