Review of Oak House

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.

Review of Oak House

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.

Review of Oak House

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
