Life at The Oaks

A Day in the life of a resident

Here at The Oaks, all of our residents are supported and encouraged to live a happy and fulfilled life. We recognise that each and everyone is different, an individual, and therefore all of our care packages are set up with full consultation prior to admission to their new home.

Choice is one of the most important elements we offer each of our residents. Whether it’s a cup of tea in bed, a morning lie in or early to rise and taking breakfast with new friends, each of our residents will choose what works for them.

There is also an extensive choice of options when it comes to dining. From breakfast until supper time we offer an array of home made, home cooked foods. Every meal time is an occasion and an opportunity to chat with like minded people on the topics of the day.

If you like to go out with family, friends or of course on your own then this is your choice. On the other hand you could just relax, put your feet up, drink a cup of coffee, read the daily newspaper and watch the world go by sat in one of our numerous sitting areas or in fact out in the garden. You’ll be sure to see a bird or two!!

Throughout the day time you will always find activities going on, should you wish to join in and have a go. From professional entertainers, bingo, dominoes, cards, quizzes, competitions, the list goes on.

And to keep our residents looking their best, we have our own professional hairdressing service. In the comfort of one’s own home, residents can have a cut and blow dry, wash and set, colour or maybe even a perm. Our chiropodist also visits regularly to keep our residents feet, toes and nails in good shape.
