Review of Oaktree Court

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.

Review of Oaktree Court

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

Review of Oaktree Court

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.

Review of Oaktree Court

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.

Review of 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.

Review of 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!

Review of Oaktree Court

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.

My father has been a resident at Oaktree Court for just over a year. He found it very hard to settle but with understanding and some wonderful staff he was able to enjoy life there until he passed away recently. The house is in lovely surroundings and ideal for sitting out in the sun or short walks. The activity team are brilliant and encourage residents to join in.

The home is very clean with none of the smells often associated with care homes. The staff are caring, compassionate, friendly and efficient. Mum was always kept clean and comfortable and we were always made to feel very welcome.
