About Oaklands House

Oaklands House is located in the seaside town of Southwold in Suffolk. The house is surrounded by five acres of mature woodland. Inside the home is a handsome entrance hall which leads on to a number of exquisite reception rooms. The stunning south-facing conservatory is ideal for peace and quiet but is also a popular meeting place for residents and guests.

Silver service helps to create wonderful mealtime experiences at the home and residents can thrive in a happy, homely environment with a small team of regular staff who are dedicated to providing the very best care to residents. Everyone is treated the same – whether you’re a staff member, visitor or resident – we are the ‘Oaklands family’.

Activities and entertainment

Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Oaklands House. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of monthly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.

We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.

Some of our regular activities include:

  • Word games
  • Arts and crafts
  • Tasting sessions
  • Trialling and decorating
  • Trips to the seaside
  • Garden centre visits
  • Theatre shows
  • Entertainers
  • Singers and musicians
  • Animal visits
Dining

Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.

We have winter and summer menus and when we change the menu we ask for input from the residents who can put forward ideas. Lunches are silver service and served at tables – it is a wonderful experience for the residents.

Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. The catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each and every day.

Location

Oaklands House is situated near to the centre of the pretty seaside town of Southwold. This famous town has excellent shopping, a beach, a pier and it even has a famous brewery to visit. The home has a unique location in the Suffolk countryside with extensive views over the tree-lined gardens, which also provide a perfect setting for walks or relaxation.

Health and wellness

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 accommodation

Arranged over three floors, our 29 hotel-style bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home. All of our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished, but 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.

Our in-house hairdressing and beauty salon provides the perfect sanctuary to keep our residents feeling their best, whilst our vast gardens, bordered by flower beds and mature trees, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from regular exercise to taking tea.

        Terms and Conditions

        If you will be funding your stay privately, please click here to view our Resident Contract of Admission for Self-Funders.

        If a Local Authority may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a Local Authority Funded Stay.

        Your Local Authority might locate/suggest a care home that is/your Local Authority believes is suitable to meet your care and support needs, that is of a lower cost than our required weekly fee. In this circumstance the Local Authority is unlikely to agree to fully fund your stay if you choose to select our care home instead of the less expensive establishment it has sourced for/suggested to you. In this event, private ‘top-up’ payments will be necessary in order to address the shortfall between our weekly fee and the weekly fee funding available from/offered by your Local Authority.

        An additional top-up payment will almost certainly be required if you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home and your Local Authority is only prepared to pay for a standard room. If you select, or we only have available, a non-standard room in the care home, the additional cost for that non-standard room will have to be met by top-up payments.

        Owing to the fact that your financial means will have been assessed by your Local Authority, it is very likely that the Local Authority will require private top-up payments to be made by a third party from their own funds. Although the Guidance to the Care Act 2014 states that a Local Authority ought itself collect top-up payments, some require us to collect such payments on their behalf. Should the Local Authority require us to collect top-up payments, we would issue the third party who is to fund the top-up with a contractual agreement for their review and signature.

        If a Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) may be funding your stay, please click here to view our Resident Terms and Conditions for a CCG Funded Stay.
