My brother has been a resident in Oakleigh since July 2023 and we have found the staff very friendly and caring and happy to discuss and resolve any queries. We are very pleased that we found Oakleigh and would definitely recommend this care home to anyone in the same circumstances.

This care home is fantastic. The care, patience, and never-ending interest in all the residents regardless of the different challenges they all provide, as shown by all the staff in every position I find just astonishing. My father has been a resident for 6 months now and I have not had one single doubt in all that time that luckily I found the be… st care home for him. There always are events to keep the weeks from becoming dull, the recent annual fete was so well organised and carried off. Hats off to Oakleigh and everyone working there, it really is a quite amazing place.

My husband has been with Oakleigh for 16 months now with Dementia. My experience has been really good. They always take the time to talk to you. My husband is always in a good state, bathed regularly, and his clothes and bedding are always clean. No smells anywhere. His floor is cleaned everywhere daily. The food always looks lovely. He is happy ge… nerally, and if he isn't, they speak to me and arrange outside help regarding his medication if necessary.

My dad was 102 in January and had a great day thanks to the care of the staff of Treetops, who decorated the dining room for the family to use in the afternoon and couldn't do enough for us. Dad ate a fresh mango for the first time, with help and had so much fun. Dad is very happy here. The staff are lovely, caring, and kind, and he looks at them a… s friends. He enjoys the activities and says the food is very good. Dad was living independently until he was 101 when a series of falls meant he couldn't cope in his home any more. It is such a relief to the family that he is so well cared for and happy at Oakleigh.

Having looked after my sister (with dementia) for the past three years, I wanted some respite and reluctantly looked around care homes. I chose Oakleigh for the feeling I got looking around, of being a warm and caring environment - not clinical and regimented. The staff appeared relaxed and friendly. Each floor had an open, homely feel. My sister s… tayed for ten nights, and an individual care plan was used, keeping to her general routine. She came away just as happy as she went in. So back home, it was like she'd never been away, and no settling back in was needed. I look forward to my next respite - with absolutely no worry about my sister.
