The Friends of Oaklodge
One of the fundamental principles of Oaklodge Nursing Home is to ensure that our door is always open to the local community, giving the residents a sense of their community and community spirit. The Friends of Oaklodge volunteer groupvisitis on different days every week to play cards, chat with residents or to help with activities. We also facilitate local schools, choirs and youth groups to become actively involved in life at Oaklodge as we believe that this inter-generational contact enables our residents to contribute to the local community.
Families are encouraged to continue caring for residents through their active involvement in Oaklodge family council, activity programme, life story books etc. A visitors / family room is available, as well as an overnight room.
