We understand that choosing the BEST nursing home is a big decision...
We kindly ask you to refrain from visiting the home if you (or anyone you've been in contact with) are or have been ill recently
We value our residents and believe that Oak View should be their home away from home, so relatives and friends are welcome to visit anytime.
However the safety of our residents is of equal importance, therefore we do respectfullly request that all visitors use the sign-in book located in the Reception area, both upon entering the nursing home and sign-out again when leaving.
The only time we discourage visiting is during meal times (please refer to our notice posted throughout this website & within the physicla building).
The only other times visiting may be restrictedand is during an infectious outbreak.
Visiting & Lifestyle - FAQs
Residents may leave the premises for day trips etc. with friends & family.
If you plan to go out for the day, a bite of lunch or indeed to spend a weekend with your friends or relatives, we simply ask that a member of staff is informed before you leave the nursing home.

Holidays can also be facilitated, however please be aware that the resident’s normal fee will still be applicable during the period of absence.
