Oxenford House Staff and Services
The general manager has a wealth of experience in the care of the elderly, is a qualified nurse, and has attained the Registered Managers Award. Supporting her is the Deputy Manager and a team of Senior Carers. Our valued team of care staff, on duty around the clock, are also encouraged to undertake both in-house and external training, many having attained a minimum of QCF/NVQ Level 2 and 3 in Health & Social Care. This enables our staff to successfully meet the physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual needs of our residents. Oxenford House encourages residents to retain their independence, staff will help with the things they can’t do.
On arrival at Oxenford House we will introduce you to a key staff member and an existing resident, to help you with any queries you may have during your settling in period. Oxenford House has resident’s meetings where everyone has an opportunity to join. Ideas and suggestions are proposed by the residents on everything, from menu planning to
entertainment. Our activity leader and staff ensure that there is always something going on such as:
In-house theatre shows
Arts and Crafts
We build up relationships with students from local schools who on a weekly basis, visit residents whilst aiming for their Duke of Edinburgh Award. The interaction between the different generations is mutually beneficial.

About our staff and carers
The care team is complemented by catering, domestic and administrative staff who are also fully trained in their area of
expertise, and our lanscaped grounds are cared for by our visiting weekly gardener. Oxenford House has its own GP from a local surgery who visits every other week (other times by appointment only and in the case of emergencies) and we can arrange visits by chiropodists, opticians and dentists, subject to the individual needs of each resident. Residents are encouraged to pursue and develop interests that attract them.
