Oaktree is a new build care home, well located in the town of Yate in South Gloucestershirecare, just 12 miles from Bristol city centre. The home is surrounded by lovely gardens with a patio. The team at Oaktree are passionate about providing truly exceptional care, and they work with residents and families to ensure all individual care needs are met.
Staff work closely with each resident to understand their hobbies and interests, providing a varied activities plan encompassing group and one-to-one activities. Reviews for the care home are excellent with many families highly recommending the facilities and standard of care provided.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Oaktree. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly 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:
- Church service
- Pet therapy
- Arts and crafts
- Lovely gardens with patio
- Pub visits
- Coffee and lunch trips
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.
Meals are freshly cooked every day and residents have two options. The menu is offered on a four week rotation and is seasonal. A regular residents meeting with the chef helps to determine residents’ likes and dislikes and we encourage people to eat within the dining room where possible where a host of traditional foods are served.
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 day.
Oaktree is located close to the town centre of Yate, which is just a short walk away or there is a public bus stop close by. Other local amenities include a supermarket, a takeaway (which we use once a month), a hairdressers and a pub. We are just 10 miles from Bristol where residents and visitors can enjoy the many shops, parks and sights.
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 76 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.
Our pretty gardens, bordered by flower beds, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
