My mother spent the last few weeks of her life at Oaktree Court, she couldn't have had better care, the staff were excellent and showed compassion and understanding as well as good care skills. They were also very supportive to me and the rest of the family - we all can't thank them enough for helping us through such a difficult time.

I have a lovely room at the front of the home overlooking the gardens. The flowers outside my room are lovely. The staff are lovely and if I need help they come straight away. The food is good and there is a good choice. There are good activities every day and I get involved when I fell like joining in. The other residents are very chatty and nice, and we all enjoy each others company.

My father-in-law spent his final 5 months at Oaktree Court. First impressions of a bright, clean and happy place were only reinforced by the care my father-in-law received. Initially he was able to take advantage of the many and varied activities, and up to the end, these were brought to him in his room when he was unable to leave his bed.

We cannot emphasise enough how pleased we were with the fantastic care and kindness shown to us and my mum even though her stay was only short. Nothing was too much trouble and we thank every single member of staff for all their help and kindness. The catering staff were particularly kind to us during the last couple of days of mums visit.

My father Morris was a resident for the final 6 months of his life. He was dying of cancer and a frail 89 year old who progressively needed more personal and nursing care to keep him comfortable. The staff at Oak Tree Court were excellent at meeting his personal and nursing needs and I would highly recommend this home. The facilities were excellent and the residents dignity always respected.

I am so pleased with the care mother receives at Oak Tree Court. The new manager has been an inspiration, he is hard working listens and is pro-active. He acts on his promises and is a very positive presence. The activities team are superb and we are so lucky to have them. not least, the nurses and carers are kind, respect the residents and all deserve medals. So much better all round now staffing levels have been improved.

I have lived here for two years, and I have my own room on the top floor. It's a lovely room with views across the Backdown Hills. The staff always do their best to make me feel comfortable and I am very happy here. I enjoy spending time in my room but the staff always let me know what's going on, just in case I want to get involved. Julie the chef is excellent, and I can eat whatever I want, which is great as I am a vegetarian.

Making a life changing decision for my elderly father has been a steep learning curb, which was made considerably easier by the support of, both management and staff at this well run care home. I have been extremely happy with the care and great dignity the hardworking staff have shown my father and their tireless dedication, has resulted in him regaining his mobility after a very nasty broken hip. Many thanks to you all

All the patients seem content, but on the 'top level' where the patients are quite poorly, there is a lot of work and the carers work extremely hard, so although new staff have arrived another pair of hands would improve things even more. I spend 4 hours each day with my husband and I can see how busy this level can be - EVEN MORE STAFF that's my only comment, then it would be excellent 'plus'! but well done to them all.

I marked facilities down as the wet room attached to my room had only support one side of the toilet - perhaps I should have put under room?. Food and Drink, I had to ask to exchange the desert for fruit as I found it hard to get my '5 a day' at times. Activities - some were outstanding but a lot did not generally appeal to me. I was glad of my laptop to keep in touch with friends who were unable to visit. With such a varied number of health problems it would be very hard to please everyone. Oaktree court is the third care home our family have had reason to use in the last 6 years and it is by far the best. I had a wonderful stay there.

Oaktree Court

Oaktree Court has provided my mother with a good standard of care since she moved from a London area home in 2012. The nursing care is good and carers attentive throughout the 24 hours a day she needs support. The accommodation is of a high standard and food is generally good and suitably portioned for her needs. Her suite is in a quiet area of the home with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.

Oaktree Court

My Mum was a resident at Oaktree Court for two years before she passed away in February 2014. I have nothing but praise for the staff, food (she put on weight in there), cleanliness and the varied activities at Oaktree and I know that Mum was very happy there. Right up until the end she was treated with love and dignity - nothing was too much trouble. I personally always felt welcome and the staff were like an extended family. All the bedrooms are furnished to a very high standard with en-suite shower rooms - would match any good hotel room!

My mother has been in Oaktree Court since October 2013 suffering from Dementia. I am delighted with the care she gets, the staff are great, nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent she has put on weight. They organise events regularly and go out on weekly trips. There is always something going on. Last week the home organised V.E day celebrations over a lunchtime. The staff were very attentive, all the residents enjoyed joining in with the wartime songs, waving flags and a huge sponge cake decorated as a Union Jack was on the menu.
