The Oaks

The Oaks, situated within The Oaks Centre,
is an integral part of the Hartrigg Oaks
community and is suitable for people who
need higher levels of care than can be
provided in their own home. It is registered
to provide residential, nursing and
dementia care.

In providing services, we respect each
resident’s right to dignity and choice. We
carry out regular person-centred
assessments that take into account all aspects
of an individual’s life, to ensure that we
provide the best possible care and support.
The Oaks has 42 spacious bed-sitting rooms,
which are all en-suite with level-access
showers, and most have a French door
leading out onto a balcony or patio. Three of
the rooms are reserved for residents who
require a short stay, for example following a
period of illness, or early discharge from
In addition to having its own dedicated
facilities, including lounge, activity area, dining
room and rose garden, The Oaks is ideally
located for access to the main communal
facilities. This means residents who move
from their bungalow to The Oaks can still
enjoy the same activities and social links. It is
also conveniently placed for a partner or
neighbours living at Hartrigg Oaks to visit.
