Welcome to Oaken Holt Nursing and Residential Home

Oaken Holt Nursing and Residential Home is a Victorian mansion set on the 23-acre Oaken Holt Estate with The Coach House alongside and our sister home Wytham House also on the grounds in Farmoor. These three buildings offer residential care, memory care and more complex dementia care and nursing respectively. These complementary services offer the high-quality service associated with the Caring Homes experience, and no matter how and when your circumstances change, you won’t need to leave the place you’ve come to call home.

Our residents living in the Oaken Holt Main House enjoy independent lifestyles in a gorgeous property overlooking the Oaken Holt grounds. Our highly trained team are always available to provide a light helping hand along with day-to-day activities, and our residents live with the peace of mind that care and support is always there if they need it.

Oaken Holt has been updated to meet the latest care standards whilst retaining some charming original features such as oak panelling, painted ceilings and plaster cornices. There are stunning lounges and dining areas, a bistro and hair salon as well as a library. Residents are often popping over to the shops in Witney and Kidlington, or to a local pub for lunch and we've enjoyed mystery tours of Oxford and boat trips on the Thames. Our residents and families enjoy feeling a part of the local community where residents and local people meet at our events including barbecues, cheese and wine evenings and coffee mornings.

Keeping Things Personal

The wonderful surroundings at Oaken Holt Nursing and Residential Home 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.

Do I need to book a viewing?

You should be able to visit a home at any time – we advise visiting more than once and at different times, so that you can get a clearer understanding of what it is like throughout the day. If you wish to meet the Home Manager during your visit, you might want to consider booking in advance to help ensure they are available when you attend. You can book a viewing using the form above or by calling the home.

Who decides on the menu?

Our Head Chef and the team have many years of cooking experience. They craft their nutritionally balanced menus using seasonal produce, and are guided by the feedback provided to them from our residents during their monthly hospitality meetings and individual care plans.

What qualifications do your care team have?

All members of our care teams are given the training and support needed to help them provide the highest standards of care.

Caring Homes has been providing care for over 25 years. Every team member receives our unique ‘Living in my World’ dementia training which is accredited by City and Guilds.

It highlights the importance of meaningful activities and a stimulating environment for people living with dementia, as well as addressing clinical aspects of care.

The ‘Food in my World’ training, also accredited by City and Guilds provides the hospitality team and chefs with the skills and knowledge to stimulate senses and increase creativity in the cooking and presentation of food. This can provide a much-improved dining experience for residents living with dementia and or dysphagia.

How long can people stay in a care home for?

The length of time people spend in a care home varies according to their needs and preferences. Our homes offer permanent care to suit your needs or perhaps a respite stay might be required during a period of convalescence after being in hospital. Day Care is also available at many homes to ensure care can continue when a regular carer is unavailable.
