She has settled well and we are very happy. The staff are exceedingly caring, personal, thoughtful and supportive of us all. The home is always warm, clean and the food is good - it's very well equip too. I like that they are responsive to comments/feedback. Overall, very very happy.

I think the care and the home itself is very good but it's a shame she didn't take advantage of what is on offer there. My only feedback would have been for the staff to be more proactive in asking her the the lounge and get her involved but we also appreciate that they may have done so. Overall, we know it the stay was just fine.

We are happy with the home and the care being provided. It's been nice to watch the staff help him to his feet and walk him to the dining room and how content he is. I've become less involved now that he has good support.

My Mother has been at the home for a month and I am very happy with all the staff at the home. They are really looking after my Mother and she hasn't been happier. I would highly recommend this home to all my family and friends

My Mother was at the home for just over two weeks respite. While at the home all the staff were very caring and went above and beyond. If my mother need permanent care i will be going to The Oaks first.

I feel truly blessed that we have managed to get my Aunt & Uncle into this home and cannot thank the staff enough for all they do. This is not just the management, but the carers, the chefs and the cleaners as well. The home is clean and tidy, and there are actually activities going on regularly, which we have seen for ourselves.

Mum started as a respite stay at The Oaks but enjoyed her respite so much she decided to remain i as a full time resident. As a family we would like to say thank you to all the staff at The Oaks who seem to go out their way to help us - they of course are also brilliant with mum. I would highly recommend The Oaks

The home is fantastic. My Mother has settled wonderfully and we couldn't be happier. The home and staff are brilliant, very caring and attentive and the room is lovely. I can't thank The Oaks enough - it has been a very stressful time for the family and we can now rest knowing she is in the best hands
