ABOUT THE HOME
Oaken Holt Nursing and Residential Home is a Victorian mansion set on the 23-acre Oaken Holt Estate with our sister home Wytham House also on the grounds in Farmoor. Oaken Holt has been updated to meet the latest care standards whilst retaining some charming original features such as oak panelling, painted ceilings and plaster cornices. There are stunning lounges and dining areas, a bistro and hair salon as well as a library. Residents are often popping over to the shops in Witney and Kidlington, or to a local pub for lunch and we've enjoyed mystery tours of Oxford and boat trips on the Thames. Our residents and families enjoy feeling a part of the local community where residents and local people meet at our events including barbecues, cheese and wine evenings and coffee mornings.
We offer fantastic training and development opportunities, each of our care workers work towards their Care Certificate, giving them the confidence to deliver first-class care.
We also undertake a wide range of diverse training, from manual handling to infection control and safeguarding. We have an extensive training team, consisting of regional trainers as well as a network of in-home trainers, able to deliver programmes to colleagues.
In 2015 we launched our own dementia training programme, called ‘My World’. This is accredited by City and Guilds and was awarded the Princess Royal Training Award, every employee is given the opportunity to learn and develop.
