Located in the countryside of Yarnton, our residential and nursing home is tucked away in a rural spot of Oxfordshire, in the Cherwell area of Kidlington.
Situated next door to the local primary school, you often hear the joyful sounds of youngsters during their breaktime. The children often join us for arts and crafts or to give us a sneak preview of a choral performance, which is a real treat.
The home has a beautiful garden, with raised flowerbeds, wheelchair friendly pathways and a large greenhouse; it’s perfect for our green-fingered residents. We even have a gardening club, where we grow a range of beautiful bedding plants to sell to the community in Yarnton and Kidlington. The club is run and managed by our residents, giving them a real sense of pride and purpose, empowering them to be as independent as possible.
We have very close links with our local community, often hosting events in the heart of our residential and nursing home. From a Las Vegas-themed virtual cruise week to a summer fayre with ice-cream and stalls galore, we pull out all the stops to host wonderful celebrations for our residents and the wider community.
Not only do our activities enhance our residents’ wellbeing, they bring familiar and fresh faces into their home. For our residents in residential care, they often tell us that they socialise more now than when they lived alone - and that's what it's all about!
Other popular visitors are creatures of all shapes and sizes that come in for animal therapy sessions. We also encourage visitors and relatives to bring their own well-behaved pets when they visit. Spending time with animals can bring back lovely memories for residents who once had pets of their own and can be extremely calming and therapeutic. For those with greater nursing needs animal visits, which have even been known to include a miniature pony, can take place at their bedside.
The home also has its own minibus to take residents out and about. From garden centres and museums and other places across Oxfordshire - even trips to the seaside. We also use our minibus to support people living with dementia in their own homes around Yarnton and Kidlington, to get to a local day centre. This is something we are really proud of, because we are helping to reduce social isolation within the area.
Our dedicated team
Providing residential, nursing, dementia, palliative and respite care, our team provides care that is truly bespoke to every individual. Everything we do is person-centred, from care and activities, to the mealtime experience. Our catering team are able to sit and speak with the residents during mealtimes to really get to know their personal likes and dislikes. This ensures our residents get the most out of their dining experience.
And in our opinion, our residents are very lucky indeed, as our Chef Manager Marcella Field has confidently secured her fifth victory in Sanctuary Care’s prestigious Chef of the Year competition. It's with no surprise that our residents adore the food prepared by Marcella and her team.
