It has ample parking, relaxing views of open fields and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. With accommodation for 53 residents, Oaklands offers residential care, award-winning dementia care, day care and respite care when available.

Our team of staff are highly trained with the skills and knowledge required to support all residents and, as with all Kingsley care homes, person centred care is at the heart of what we do.

Oaklands lies in a small south Norfolk village, just four miles from Diss with easy access to the A140 and A143. Both the Norwich and Gt Yarmouth buses travel through the village, which has a shop, and a public house.

The home is a beautiful, tastefully converted grade II listed Georgian manor house with rooms for 53 residents and plenty of communal areas. Visually attractive inside and out, the home has large, well-maintained grounds that residents can and do enjoy all year round.

Oaklands has had a recent programme of refurbishment, and has been carefully and tastefully modernised to provide exceptional care in a truly homely environment. The home still retains its high ceilings and many of its original features, such as the grand sweeping staircase.

The home has so much character, and with its wealth of interesting ornaments, objects d’art, pictures and talking points, it never ceases to please and entertain. The friendly staff always extend a warm welcome too, so visitors tend to be immediately put at their ease.

The home is very well appointed with private rooms, suites and pleasant common areas, including a large dining room, lounge, school and music corridor, sports corridor, conservatory, garden and patios.

Each bedroom is finished to the highest standard, but can be individualised and decorated to personal taste. They are also fitted with necessary aids such as call bell systems, door alarms and wet rooms. Baths are fitted in en suite rooms, and the following are available should the need arise: pressure mats, pressure-relieving equipment, hoists, stand aids and lifts.

As with all Kingsley homes, our daily emphasis is on the care that our residents need, whether that be physical, emotional or mental.

Why not give us a call to find out how we can support yourself or a loved one at our care home in Diss, Norfolk.
