"I feel so lucky to be well looked after. The staff are so caring, warm and friendly; they couldn’t have done more for me! There is always someone to talk to when I need to as my husband has passed away, so I feel down often. They really are fantastic! I can’t rate Oaklands high enough! I really feel at home!

They have helped me so much. You can see how much they enjoy their work!"
