Find out more about our lovely residents

Everyone at our dementia and residential care home is unique and has their own story to tell. Take a moment to read some of our residents’ journeys and adventures here.

Family plant a tree at Oaklands in memory of much-loved resident Alex

Alex was a much-loved resident here at Oaklands, who had been with us for three & a half years for dementia care, before his sad passing earlier this year. Prior to coming to Oaklands, Alex loved gardening, and amazingly he was still gardening for clients right into 80s before his dementia diagnosis.

Oaklands go above and beyond to help Gurdev settle into her new home

English was not Gurdev’s main language, so one of the concerns Gurdev’s family had was surrounding the communication between their mother and staff. Thankfully, several of our team are able to speak more than one language, including Punjabi and Hindi – which also happened to be Gurdev’s first language.

Oaklands put together a special ‘birthday menu’ for Pete

Birthdays are always a special occasion at Oaklands and we go to every effort to make sure each of our resident’s special days are unique to them. When Pete – a long-term resident of ours – had his birthday coming up in May, he was initially a little hesitant to celebrate; however, having often spoken about his favourite pastime meals, he was keen to enjoy some of these on the day.

Oaklands reunite couple to celebrate their 39th wedding anniversary

Tony joined us at Oaklands earlier this year for respite care. His wife of 39 years – Diana – also recently joined us while awaiting the completion of their final home renovations, before they return home together. When we heard about their 39th wedding anniversary, we decided to put on a special afternoon tea in our private reading room for the couple to celebrate.

Helping Keith live independently again

Returning home after receiving short-term care can sometimes be daunting for residents. So, when Keith joined us at Oaklands temporarily, we wanted to make sure his transition to living independently again would be as smooth as possible.
