Oldfield House was established in 1982 as a Registered Care Home to deliver a high standard of residential care to members of the community. Set in a quiet residential area of Darwen, this beautiful old stone building has been tastefully extended and adapted to retain many of the original features of the home. The management team have continued updating through the years, maintaining a safe and comfortable home for our residents. The home is set in private mature and beautiful gardens and a beautiful patio suntrap allows our residents to enjoy the outdoors at their leisure.
The home has a large lounge which overlooks the the gardens and another separate quiet sitting area. The environment we have strived to achieve is "homely" and comfortable. All toilets are adapted for disabled use and a lift is available to all floors.
Our highly qualified and dedicated staff are supervised by a Care Manager, and supported by senior care staff on each shift. All members of the care team are committed to delivering the highest standard of care. As a smaller home, registered for just 19 residents, we are able to have a more personal approach to our care delivery. Our care is individualised to meet all the needs of each of our residents and is delivered with professionalism and the sincerest of care. Residents and their relatives are invited to be involved in the care planning process if they so choose.
The residents are involved in menu selections and a nutritional varied menu is produced with excellent home cooking, and special diets can always be catered for. All rooms have wash hand basins and a nurse call system and some rooms have en-suite toilet facilities.
A telephone is available for all residents to use and there is visiting hairdresser & chiropodist for our residents. There is a varied activities programme and our residents are accommodated in their choices and suggestions for our activities programme.
The team has worked tirelessly to have developed our enviable reputation. The home is a recognised 'Quality Assured Home', as assessed under the Blackburn with Darwen Quality Assurance Scheme.
Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the very best service in the care industry.
