Little Oaks

We are registered for 35 residents. All our bedrooms have en-suites and we provide long term residential care as well as short term respite and end of life care.

Little Oaks is open to private, national health service and local authority referrals.

We are committed to providing the highest quality care for our residents and deliberately maintain a high staff to resident ratio.

We adapt to the needs and choices of the persons with whose care we have been entrusted and listen to the families and individuals who support them, to personalise the service accordingly.

CQC Rating

We have had a CQC rating of outstanding for care since 2018. We are however, always looking to the future and relentlessly seeking opportunities to improve.

Rest and relax

We have pleasant communal areas for residents and families to enjoy, these include three lounges, a conservatory, and two dining rooms for residents to rest and relax as well as two terraces overlooking the landscaped gardens.

Technology

Whilst there is no substitute for carers having the time and support to meet resident’s need’s, we also make use of the most modern technology where appropriate. An infra-red call bell system is fitted throughout the home and all documentation and record keeping is done electronically on a bespoke care package.

Home cooking

We believe good food to be a vital element of the service and all our meals are freshly prepared and cooked on the premises from quality, seasonal ingredients by our chef. Residents are always offered a choice of meals from a changing menu which are enjoyed in the dining rooms, conservatory or outside on the terrace in the warmer months.

Our staff

Our staff are attentively selected, appropriately trained and we invest in them wholeheartedly. They give all our residents the support and care needed whilst promoting independence, dignity and choice.

Activities

In addition to the tailored care we provide, there is a full and varied programme of entertainment, events and excursions.

Mum moved into Little Oaks at the end of January this year, having spent ten weeks in hospital following a minor stroke. I was very impressed with the speed mum moved in - from the initial look around the home and choosing the room, her assessment at the hospital, to her being discharged into the care of Little Oaks. It took mum some time to adjust to being in a care home after being so independent, but the caring staff soon made her feel at home. I think having some of her own furniture, family photos, and other personnel effects around the room helped her to settle in. Now, mum joins in with every activity and always says how lovely the staff are. When you walk in through the front door, it feels like you are entering a family home. All the staff are so friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. We are so grateful mum is in Little Oaks. The care and love for the residents and the dedication of the staff are second to none. Knowing that mum is well cared for and happy is very important to us.

We would like to thank Little Oaks for making Ann’s 92nd birthday such a special occasion on Sunday. The staff were very kind and helpful, the decorations were very festive and many thanks to the chef for such a beautiful cake. It was lovely for our family to come in and celebrate with her in the conservatory.

We , the three sons of Rita, would just like you to know that we are very grateful for the care our Mother received while at Little Oaks. Although she was only with you for 4 months, she could not have had a better end to her life. She was almost 96 and had had died one day before the Queen ,a happy coincidence. She had never suffered a serious illness in her life and passed away peacefully in her sleep -thank you to all your staff for being so caring and looking after her.

Just thought I’d say that my mum, Pat, is doing remarkably well and we are very happy for that - we can put that down to the care she has received, the right diet and regular drinks. Please pass on our thanks to everyone.

Mum received exemplary care, both before and after change of ownership. She was “rescued” from hospital amazingly speedily just before the surge in infections and subsequent lockdowns from Autumn 2020, and so only experienced no, then restricted, visiting. Throughout this time every effort was made to maintain communication with the family. Once visiting opened up again and I was able to go in, I found it comfortable, clean and tidy, with no odours (in my profession I have visited many carehomes which the same cannot be said for) During her last few weeks when she needed a high level of care, this was provided sympathetically and efficiently - Mum was always clean and well cared for, as was her bed, so her last few weeks were peaceful. All the staff were very kind, and we found it reassuring that she was safe and comfortable.

I just wanted to say what a lovely afternoon myself, my husband, my sister and her husband had with mum (Judy) in the conservatory yesterday afternoon for Mothering Sunday. It was the first time we had all been together since last October. We wanted to pass on our thanks to all your lovely care team who looked after us so well. We are so happy that mum is now living at Little Oaks. People are always quick to criticise but slow to praise where it's merited”

Our residents do not live in our workplace, we are privileged to work in their home
