We have a daily menu with plenty of choices on it. Our chef has been at the home long enough to know how to keep all the residents happy! He tries to accommodate everyone and will take into account the additional dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes.

Albany is located in the eastern suburb of Headington in Oxford. It is surrounded by parks and local shops are easily accessible to those wishing to visit family members at the home. Places of interest include the local pub located just down the road, garden centres, the open market, museums and church parks.
The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.
Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.
Arranged over two floors, our 38 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All of our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.
Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.
