My mum has lived at Oak Tree Lodge for 2 1/2 years and we have been very pleased with the care she has received. The staff are very caring, they take time to get to know the residents so they can give them the best experience possible. Staff have communicated with us regularly and when we visit we are always made welcome. Mum has remained content … and calm in the home and I cannot thank the staff enough for the care they give her.

My sister-in-law has flourished since becoming a resident at Oak Tree Lodge. There is nothing that can be done about her dementia, but as a result of care in Oak Tree Lodge she is safe, well fed, and healthy.

Ever since my mother-in-law moved into Oak Tree Lodge in October 2021. She has been treated with dignity, respect and affection. Her dementia is progressing quite rapidly and she has had moments of very challenging behaviour with both residents and staff, but each incident has been has been handled professionally by the managers and carers and I ha… ve nothing but admiration for them all. Thank you so much to all at Oak Tree for taking such good care of my mother-in-law.

Mum came here in February 2023 from hospital and she has fitted in well, she gets looked after, fed, watered, entertainment and there is plenty going on for her. Her room is nice and looks out so she can see what is going on. The lounge area is nice and big with nice views, and loads of little spaces to sit around the home. The staff and carers are… all fantastic and have the patience of Saints. Mum seems to be happy here and would recommend oak tree lodge to anyone looking for a place for a relative.

My father has just celebrated his 92nd birthday in Oak Tree Lodge. The staff could not have been more accommodating. They gave over a small room to the family so that we could make it special. They also provided tea, coffee and drinks for the children. This is just one example of the care and thoughtfulness that the staff have shown both my father … and my mother. I cannot praise them enough

I've been to see my friend every week since her arrival and I've seen a big improvement in her condition. On admission, she was very upset and angry each time I came, but not she seems quiet settled and happy. A much better experience for us both.
