Our approach to senior care and support

Our support is based on companionship and quality time spent together. Maintaining a person’s personal dignity is essential to us.

Older People at Home and in the Community

Home Care and Community

At Oaklea, we offer a range of care packages for you in your home that can help you to boost your confidence, retain your independence and remain in your familiar surroundings.

Whether you need some basic support with daily activities such as shopping or housework, or high-level care, for one or 24 hours a day, everything we do is based on the same principles behind the high-quality care that Oaklea is known for.

Our skilled team of staff will go above and beyond to deliver care that exceeds your expectations. After our team manager meets with you and assesses how best we can meet your needs, we will develop a flexible, personalised care plan to suit you, which will be reviewed every six months. A member of our team will be assigned to care for you and arrange to come and visit you, on a flexible basis, at times that work best for you.
