Keeping things personal

At Oaken Holt

The wonderful surroundings at Oaken Holt are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

Keep doing what you love

At Oaken Holt Nursing and Residential Home, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy – from the craft room to the hair salon, our packed schedule of events and activities, to picnics in the stunning grounds. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a pint in the local pub. We have strong connections with the Farmoor community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

You'll be in good company this spring

Book a respite stay for peace of mind

Over four million older people in the UK say they feel lonely and lack the friendship and support which we all need. Our respite and permanent stays offer the chance to see some new faces and try out some new things with as much or as little support as you need.

During this unprecedented time, many residents have chosen us for peace of mind so they feel safe in the knowledge that care and support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should they need it, as well as staying connected. Whether you're looking for permanent care or a respite stay, ask us about our latest availability in our homes and the extra things we are doing to keep our residents, families and teams safe.

Meet the Manager

Liz Day

Oaken Holt Home Manager

As Home Manager of Oaken Holt, I lead a professional team in providing the highest standards of residential and nursing care for up to 55 residents with varying needs.

After qualifying as a nurse 30 years ago, I began my career as a hospital staff nurse before moving into roles within care home nursing and community placements, which I found incredibly rewarding. My love of these roles helped me develop my core skills and I have now been managing care homes for over ten years. I love leading a team of dedicated staff and hope to always inspire people to create a lively and friendly atmosphere. The Wellbeing team at Oaken Holt encourage everyone to get involved, whether it’s a singalong, exercise session or a quiz. Oaken Holt is our resident’s home and we strive to respect that, whilst keeping them safe and well in a comfortable environment.

Choosing a care home can be a daunting time for residents and their families, often people find it difficult to imagine themselves reaching a point where they are leaving their own home. We help to overcome this by showing our residents that a care home can be a warm and loving environment, where people can lead fulfilled lives, learn some new skills and make great friends.

Working with older people is very rewarding as they have such interesting stories to tell. Knowing that what we do makes such a difference to our residents inspires and gives us tremendous satisfaction. The dedication of the team at Oaken Holt and a smile or a shared joke with a resident makes it worthwhile.
