So good to see Dad doing so well in the care of Oakwood Grange Care Home. I saw huge improvements within days of leaving the hospital. Staff are attentive and caring and questions are answered positively. The home is clean and tidy and you can see the effort everyone puts in. I'd have no reservations in recommending Oakwood Grange to future residen… ts.

My dad came here recently from the hospital after his previous care home refused to take him back. Since the day he came here, the staff have been amazing, not only with Dad but with his (4) anxious daughters. Dad has challenges caused by his dementia, and the staff are not only understanding and caring but also looking for ways to improve Dad's mo… od and behaviour. They are in frequent contact with our family with updates. We could not feel happier and more supported by the manager and every other single member of staff we have met.

I struck gold when I found this care home. I had personal and health problems of my own, aside from worrying about my dad and didn't visit as much as I would have liked, but I never once felt judged, and I felt assured that Dad was being looked after and treated so kindly by the lovely caring staff. On Dad's final day, I was scared and didn't know … what to expect, but as I walked into his room, there was a calm ambience, and a member of staff sat holding his hand. I knew right then that everything was going to be alright. There were three members of staff that I met for the first time that last night, and they were all there for me; I don't know how I would have gotten through it without them. Especially one particular lady who looked after me. It's just such a homely, lovely environment. The staff are so professional and also have a sense of humour and always gave off the feeling that they loved working there and always had a smile for you. Nothing was too much trouble. Brilliant place.

My wife is a dementia resident. I am very pleased with the care she is receiving, and with the friendly welcome I receive from the staff each time I visit. The staff are wonderful - very caring, kind, patient and helpful. They are an excellent team, well-led. First class, purpose-built accommodation and facilities. I could not hope to find a better… place to care for my wife than Oakwood Grange. My heartfelt thank you to all.

My mum was only with the care home for two months before her death. The staff were very caring and compassionate. The food was lovely (although my mum was not good at eating), but my dad enjoyed many meals while visiting her, which he kept commenting were excellent! I would recommend this home wholeheartedly and thank them for the care they gave Mu… m in her final months,

Mum arrived at Oakwood, coming directly from the hospital. Mum was only in the home for a week as she was very ill. The staff were absolutely wonderful, kind, compassionate, caring and experienced. Between them all, they could not have done more for Mum and our family. The staff have created a very comfortable, friendly, warm environment for the re… sidents; it's an absolute credit t them all. Mum sadly passed away. We will always be grateful that she was in such a lovely home.

My dad moved to Oakwood Grange when we lost our mother. The manager accepted him within three days. The staff go above and beyond to cater for his needs, and the service from all the staff has been superb since. His room is always clean, tidy and well-maintained. The food is always first class, with plenty of choices. Thank you for the great servic… e at Oakwood Grange.
