Description of The Oaks Sidcup

Below is what Compare Care Homes knows about this care home provider. The words 'we', 'us' and 'our' do not necessarily refer to Compare Care Homes. Also, references to inspections are likely to relate to inspections by the care home regulator for this part of the UK.

The Oaks cares for up to 111 people with a variety of needs including people assessed for NHS Continuing care. The Care Centre was last inspected in January 2008 and obtained a 2 star, good rating. We are aware that many people with Dementia will have a variety of needs and our team includes both Registered Mental Health and Registered General nurses to provide 24 hour nursing care.

We have a number of activity groups such as lunch clubs, gardening and a recently added bike maintenance group. We also try to encourage visits to local pubs and restaurants in the area. Although we have a dedicated activity team all staff are encouraged to involve people in a number of different activities.

Situated on the A20 the service is easily accessible from London and Kent and free parking is provided. We are close to both Sidcup and Eltham high streets and we have a wheelchair accessible minibus, which can be used for trips out of the home.
