Oak Lodge is an award-winning care home, located within 300 acres of a beautiful Hampshire country estate. We are an outstanding care home that feels more like a five-star hotel. Part of the family-owned and managed Forest Care group, Oak Lodge combines luxury living alongside specialist nursing, residential and respite care for the elderly, in a purpose-built environment,
Our team provide a full and varied activities programme for our residents. The activities team use care plans and individual residents’ histories and hobbies to plan respectful activities that enhance lives, encourage socialisation and stimulate memories. This is an important part of our person-centered care.
Listen to what Beryl has to say about the care at Oak Lodge: “I’m so grateful to my family for having chosen this place, it’s really lovely. The staff are friends, they do absolutely everything they possibly can to make me feel happy and contented. I cannot praise it highly enough.”
To provide the exemplary care our residents deserve, we have nurses onsite 24/7 and intentionally hire more staff than the industry average providing a relaxed environment for our residents where staff can deliver person-centred care.
Good nutrition and hydration is important for your health, our talented Catering Team prides themselves on offering freshly prepared meals every day. We also plan and organise new and exciting ways to encourage nutrition and hydration.
We think it’s important that you hear from our residents, their relatives and our great staff. See our review pages to listen to our residents, relatives and staff stories and read the wonderful testimonials on the UK’s leading care home comparison site: www.carehome.co.uk
Choosing a care home can be a difficult and emotional process. We try to make it a little easier by providing the level of care and homely environment that our residents would wish for. Our open-door policy means visitors, guests and pets are always welcome, any time of day.
Residents, families, and staff came together at Oak Lodge to celebrate ‘arts’ across our four care homes with a theme of ‘reflections’. This event showcased creativity in diverse ways from painting, crafts, knitting and photography, to Irish and Indian dance, music, poetry, creative writing, and martial arts. ‘Arts’ in care homes greatly helps the wellbeing of residents, that’s why we continuously look at ways we can bring arts to our homes and will be running this event again in 2024.
