“I cannot praise Oakwood Grange highly enough. This is an amazing place where the staff prove, day in day out, that nothing is ever too much. The staff are highly professional, compassionate and dedicated people who genuinely have a very deep interest and affection for the residents. They know their residents as individuals and the care they receive reflects this. They show immense patience, kindness and above all, a desire to make their residents feel safe and happy. The quality of care is outstanding at every level. I feel so very lucky that my mother is cared for by them. It really is a model for how all care homes should be. An incredible, happy place, I have complete trust in them and the care they provide. "
