Our family caring for yours
Our philosophy is simple, our residents and their families are at the heart of our care and nursing homes. We believe that each resident and their families are unique. As a result, we tailor programmes to suits our resident’s preferences. We focus on treating all residents as individuals, with compassion and dignity.
Luxury, state-of-the-art facilities
From bistros to pubs, cinema rooms to spas - this may not be what you’d expect from a nursing home! We pride ourselves on our award-winning care services which exceed industry standards. Oakview Lodge has 64 en-suite bedrooms, we have our very own pub, cinema room, hair dressing salon, spa and beautician. Each floor has it's own tastefully decorated lounge and dining areas. Visitors are welcome at any time, with coffee and cakes available in our café for relatives and friends to enjoy. Children and families are encouraged to visit too with a dedicated family area complete with games and toys to keep younger members entertained.
We are all different, so we get to know our residents and their families individually. Our staff become one of the family and from that we ensure that each person receives an experience unique to them that goes beyond their care needs. Our Well-being and Activity Champions are responsible for ensuring that meaningful opportunities are developed and implemented, ensuring people and especially people with dementia lead meaningful lives and have a purpose. Our residents can choose to join in with group activities such as gentle exercise, crafts, games, singing and gardening. We encourage visits from local community groups to maintain and strengthen our place in the local community.
We know that quality nutritious food can make a real difference to our residents’ health and well-being. Country Court Care Chefs work closely with the care team to understand the needs and preferences of each resident. We like to involve our residents in developing the weekly menus and regularly use vegetables and herbs grown in our garden. Fresh cakes are available daily in our coffee shop for residents to enjoy with their visitors. We ensure that we ask for feedback by speaking to residents regularly about their meals.
