We cater for every taste and diet, and our food is freshly prepared and locally sourced where possible.

    Andy Kirby the Home Manager at Oak Lodge welcomes visits to the home or is happy to give further details should you wish to telephone the home on 01460 67258 to arrange a visit.

    Meet the manager

    Andy’s ethos is fairly straightforward, to make every resident and their loved ones feel they are receiving the best possible care, and couldn’t live anywhere better.  “It’s always about good communication and teamwork”, says Andy, “making sure every member of staff knows the residents really well, so everyone feels they are among friends. It’s also really important that the staff how much they are valued, both by the management team and their colleagues”.



    Andy feels that getting the views of the residents is invaluable, and tries to see every resident, every day, so he knows everyone is happy and comfortable. He is always delighted to speak to family members, especially if they have any ideas on how to improve the residents’ lives in any way. “It’s a team effort, and the families and friends know them really well, so they tend to give us ideas which we wouldn’t have otherwise thought of”.
