If a person needed care and support I would recommend Oak House, the staff are very friendly, supportive and mix one on one with the resident. Rachel takes me shopping and out for a meal, which is very nice, it made me feel very comfortable. The room is exactly what one person would need and is kept very nice and clean.

I want to express my gratitude and heartfelt thanks to all the staff on Floor 2, who welcomed my father into their family and enriched his life. They gave him excellent care and I am so lucky that I found a home for him that he loved, and that I had peace of mind.

My mother has been in highway unit for over two weeks since her bad fall at a shopping centre. I have found the manager very amenable and put my mum at rest as soon as mum was admitted. The carers have been very encouraging and totally dedicated to mums welfare and rehabilitation. Oanna, Christine, Aneshca, Marion and all the team I give a very special thank you.

Bozena and team on 2nd Floor. I have been a regular visitor to Oak House over the last three years as my friend and neighbour was resident there. She was very well cared for and I found the staff kind, helpful and friendly. The home is very clean and bright with a cheerful family atmosphere. The rooms, spacious and comfortable and visitors always made most welcome by staff willing to answer questions about patients health and welfare. On these grounds I would recommend Oak House for elderly people needing care in a homely environment. Value for money, unable to comment.

My mum is now on the 1st floor in Oak House. She is well looked after and cared for. The staff on this floor are 2nd to none, with special thanks to Bozena, Kristina, Rachel and Kim not forgetting other staff in the home including Kim Tillson. When I go home,I leave this home knowing my mum is receiving the best of care, I can see it in my mum's mood, appearance and happiness. Well done everyone.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
