The luxurious 80-bed care home has opened following a successful Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection and is now ready to welcome residents to the home for residential, nursing, dementia and palliative care. Short-term respite stays are also offered at the home, which is discreetly located within a private woodland setting on Poole Lane. The idyllic location of Great Oaks offers residents a restful atmosphere, which is enhanced by the landscaped garden; featuring raised flower beds and a vegetable patch, which green-fingered residents are welcomed to help maintain.
Great Oaks is a purpose-built care home with state-of-the-art facilities; designed to enable staff to provide the highest standard of twenty-four hour, personalised care and ensure residents are comfortable and happy in their surroundings.
The architecture of Great Oaks has been designed with large windows and verandas to ensure a light and airy space is created throughout the home to promote healthy wellbeing. All bedrooms are generously sized and create a spacious and bright place for residents to call home. Each has a private en suite wet-room with movement-triggered lights, touch-sensitive lamps and underfloor heating.
Ian MacDonald, home manager of Great Oaks, said: ‘‘I am thrilled to welcome our first guests to Great Oaks. I lead an incredible team of care professionals and we’re proud to be able to offer such brilliant care facilities within a beautiful and secluded woodland area. Our doors are always open and visitors are welcome to pop in any time to meet the team, have a look around and enjoy the peacefulness of the landscaped gardens.’’
