Oatlands Care Home

Oatlands has a unique atmosphere, emulating an extension of your own home. We are situated in South East London with excellent transport and community links (5 minutes away from the beautiful and historic Crystal Palace Park). Our home-from-home ambiance makes us stand out from the chains of care homes, where individual needs can often get lost behind company bureaucracy.

 

A vital resource to complement our care team are the dedicated Activity Co-ordinators we employ, creating and developing activities in consultation with the service users. Their role is integral to the home, providing an environment that is not only relaxed, but stimulating at the same time.  

 

The Home offers a variety of leisure activities to interest our service users, various board games, bingo, musical evenings, gentle exercise and ball games are available. In addition we have a small library with a variety of reading material and regular trips to local libraries. Make-up sessions are available for the ladies and regular hairdressing for all service users on request. We have a small shop for essential items and confectionery. Regular outings are arranged for those who wish to participate and walks in the local parks can be enjoyed. Service users' participation in gardening activities is always welcomed and the regular service user parties are a popular event. Assistance is available if required to enable service users to use the wide variety of community facilities available, for example, day centre, clubs, cinemas and theatres. Ministers of religion visit regularly and a church service is held twice a month in the home. Arrangements can be made for service users to receive communion and to attend various places of worship on request. Monthly service user meetings are held and we welcome service users’ views on the service they receive.
