We have been so pleased with the care and attention that mum has received since entering Oak Lodge. The staff, from the manager Grace, down have all been excellent and it has given us great peace of mind to know that mum is so well looked after. The home is spotlessly clean and there are activities every day. It really is a home from home. We are very pleased to recommend it to anyone.

Review of Oak Lodge Nursing Home

The location is superb - the pre-visit was very encouraging and inspired confidence. resident assessed in hospital prior to admission and the whole process was discussed with me. Unfortunately my husband had to return to hospital, but they kept in touch and visited him. If he needs further residential nursing care, I will certainly try to get him back to Oak Lodge.

Review of Oak Lodge Nursing Home

We live very close to Oak Lodge and we had a dilemma with Dad being in Doncaster desperately unhappy in the home he was in. So after coming to see Oak Lodge and being shown around, we were left in no doubt the standards set were far superior to the ones in Doncaster, the greeting from all members of staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The cleanliness and efficiency of all the staff and lay out of the home were all factors in our decision. Dad is not only happier but more responsive, mobile and stimulated.

The home provides an atmosphere calm and happiness. Every member of staff speaks when I visit.

My friend has been a resident for 3 years. The care she has received has been excellent. She was very ill last April & was in hospital for a month. She could not have survived if it had not been the care Oak Lodge had given prior to her admission. On her return to Oak Lodge she made an excellent recovery due to the excellent nursing care. The facilities, activities, entertainment is wonderful. All the staff are so kind & caring, the house is beautiful set in beautiful surroundings.

Review of Oak Lodge Nursing Home

My mother has been a resident at Oak Lodge for nearly 6 years, initially as a respite care resident, and then more permanently. After about a year, her husband of nearly 54 years died. Soon after that, she began kidney dialysis sessions three times a week. The staff at Oak Lodge coped with these major changes admirably, and continue to deal with mum with care, compassion and patience, despite her challenging and complex needs. Family members are always made to feel welcome. Activities are frequent, varied and imaginative. The move to new, purpose built, accommodation has improved a good home to an excellent one.

An excellent home with high quality staff who really care. My Mother spent nearly 10 years there and was looked after better than I had expected and enjoyed her time there greatly. The care is exemplary and she was encouraged to join in all the various activities that are run which she did every day and got great pleasure from. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Oak Lodge as an excellent care home with lovely, caring staff.

Review of Oak Lodge Nursing Home

When searching for nursing homes, Oak Lodge stood out as a having a homely atmosphere with friendly and caring staff. Happily these first impressions were correct. Sadly, my Nan was only a resident for a matter of months before passing away, but she was welcomed and cared for in a manner that we could not fault. Both the caring and admin staff take great pains to welcome and get to know residents and family, and to provide personalised care. It is a difficult decision to find the right nursing home for relatives, and we were very lucky to find Oak Lodge. On behalf of the whole family we wish to thank every member of staff for making Nan's final months as happy so comfortable.
