Care and support
Care and support is available as part of a personal care plan, or as required. This is provided in residents' own home by a dedicated community care and support team. Services include:
- home help
- personal care
- residential and nursing care, on either a respite or long-term basis, within the on-site care home (called The Oaks)
- emotional support
- advice on diet and exercise.
Personal care and residential and nursing care in The Oaks are services that are registered with the Care Quality Commission. As such they are subject to regulatory inspections. For details of the most recent inspection reports, see The Oaks community page.
Our services are relationship centred. This means they focus on the importance of positive relationships between older people, relatives and staff. We take time to find out what is important to each individual. This helps us to provide them with services that best meet their needs.
