Local Information

At Oakwood House we encourage our residents to engage in activities outside of their normal living environment.  We want residents to maximise their independence by participating in varied activities that will provide the mental and physical stimulation they require.  ‘Community Presence and Social inclusion’ will result in a more stable frame of mind.

Due to the proximity of our location, residents have easy access to local everyday amenities/support and/or activities.
