Palliative care

Situated in the picturesque Iffley village in Oxfordshire, our residential and nursing home is tucked away in a tranquil spot.

The team provides a wide range of care, including residential care, dementia care, nursing care, palliative and respite care. Our care and support evolve as our residents needs change over time. This means Iffley will always be a place they call home, giving our residents and their loved ones the peace of mind that the upheaval of moving into residential care need only happen once.

A magnificent Oxfordshire home

Sanctuary Care’s newest home in Oxfordshire, Iffley has some really wonderful features. Located on the dementia floor, the vintage café is a really popular spot for our residents to meet loved ones when they visit. With shabby chic prints and memorabilia from years gone by, it's the perfect place to enjoy a hot drink and a slice of homemade cake.

Another place residents can pop to with ease is the home’s hairdressing salon. A stylist from Iffley visits every Tuesday for sets, trims and even head massages. Our residents are pampered and made to feel extra special.

For those who love the big screen, there is a cinema room in the heart of the residential and nursing home. The residents enjoy modern titles and all the classics, and the team organises regular blockbuster nights.

And for those who enjoy the great outdoors, the home’s tranquil grounds are a fantastic place to relax. There are raised flower beds, which enable our green-fingered residents, including those in wheelchairs, to continue enjoying a much-loved hobby with ease. There is also a courtyard area, with a water feature, trellised area, seating and barbecue.

Making memories

When you walk into the home, the environment is clearly beautiful, but we think it's our person-centred activities that make us special. The team prides themselves on providing activities that are as wonderfully unique as our residents.

We also consider their care needs to ensure they get the best out of every experience. Whether enjoying a relaxing Namaste hand massage, baking or singing along to their favourite song with a member of the team, there is something for everyone.

Iffley has its own care home choir. Made up of staff, residents and those closest to them, it has proved to be a wonderfully inclusive activity that everyone can enjoy. The positive impact it’s had, particularly for our residents living with dementia has been phenomenal. Even if a resident cannot remember the title of a particular song, the wonderful feeling they get from singing at the tops of their voices stay with them long after the music has stopped playing.

The home also hosts animal therapy sessions, a knit and natter group, an exercise club and so much more. We also invite entertainers from across Iffley and Oxfordshire to perform music for our residents.

Iffley has its own minibus to make sure the team can support residents to remain active members of their local community. They enjoy visiting museums, garden centres and local pubs in and around Oxford. And in the summer, we take a trip to the coast to enjoy ice-cream or fish and chips by the sea.
