Oak Lodge – Nursing and Respite Care Home near Basingstoke, Hampshire

"Treating residents with dignity and respect according to their individual needs and wishes"


Oak Lodge provides specialist nursing and respite care in beautiful surroundings

Residents of Oak Lodge have the most beautiful north Hampshire countryside to enjoy. Located in the grounds of the 315-acre Oakley Hall country estate, Oak Lodge is a stunning conversion of former farm buildings providing a high standard of accommodation for up to 60 residents.

Oak Lodge provides 24-hour nursing respite care within a peaceful and beautiful countryside environment, and access to the grounds of Oakley Hall is something that our residents always enjoy. All 60 bedrooms are single occupancy with en-suite facilities and we can also create six interconnecting rooms for couples.

There are extensive communal areas, including an enclosed sensory garden, which gives residents the choice of getting involved in any of the daily activities or enjoying quieter times chatting with fellow residents or spending time with their visitors. We believe that choice is fundamental to good care, whether it’s the choice of what to eat or what to do each day.

At the heart of our service is respect and dignity. Care plans are tailored to individual needs and our aim is to support each and every resident of Oak Lodge to live as independently as they wish.

Meet the Team

From the moment of our first arrival, the staff have been welcoming, cheerful and dedicated. Nothing is too difficult or unreasonable. It is clear that every possible effort is exerted in order to shape the care provided for the preferences of the resident. There is a happy atmosphere, the rooms are comfortable, well furnished and spotless. Every encouragement is given for use of the residents own (small) furniture. Meals are good and there is regular tea/coffee/juice available. The location is superb, surrounded by lovely countryside and beautiful gardens. I cannot imagine there is a better care home to be found anywhere. September 2016
