The Oaks Care Home

My father spent 6 weeks in respite at The Oaks, Colchester he has been extremely ill and was sent straight from hospital. When he first arrived he was extremely anxious and the staff at The Oaks went above and beyond their duty to settle him in and deal with his terrible night anxiety etc. After his 6 weeks my father settled in so well he wanted to stay as a permanent resident. He has come on in leaps and bounds since then due to the care of Emma's dedicated staff. He is now 86 years old and is settled and as well as we could expect him to be and I believe due to staff at The Oaks he will see a few more years yet! I can't praise them enough.
