Located close to the centre of Blyth, our purpose-built care home is situated in a quiet residential area with very good transport links into town and to the beach; and is within easy walking distance of local amenities.
Providing the highest possible standard of residential dementia and nursing dementia care, our well-established team are friendly and trained to deliver the best possible care. Before a person takes up residence we meet with them and do an individual assessment. Once in our home we create an individualised care plan that enables us to get to know our residents, their needs, likes and dislikes.
Warm and welcoming with dedicated staff, The Oaks Care Home offers a range of care choices, including;
The Oaks has 35 tastefully decorated bedrooms. We encourage our residents to personalise their rooms with items of furniture, photographs and memorabilia. All rooms have TV aerial sockets, Wifi and wheelchair access and of course, nurse call systems in all rooms for the safety and wellbeing of all our residents.
We have 3 dining rooms offering a wide choice of delicious home cooked meals, residents will always find something to their taste at meal times. Should a resident choose to eat in the comfort of their own room staff will happily ensure that they are accommodated. Family members and friends are always welcome into our home to join their loved ones over a lovely meal prepared on site by the team in our 5-Star kitchen; we also cater for celebrations and birthdays. Fresh snacks, fruit and refreshments are also available around the clock for our residents.
The Oaks has 3 comfortable lounges for residents to socialise in, enjoy their favourite TV shows or to simply relax and enjoy some peace and quiet. We have a sensory room with a colourful fish tank and sensory equipment designed to stimulate residents mental and physical abilities. A lift enables people who have mobility restrictions to access all amenities in the home.
We have a dedicated hair salon, and host regular visits from healthcare practitioners such the dentist, optician and chiropodist.
Our activities coordinator offers a range of activities including 1-1 pamper sessions, reminiscence activities and games. Residents attend dementia-friendly lunches arranged by local charity Mind Active and go on outings to the seaside and to local beauty spots
