Oakdown House, in Burwash Common provides care and support for up to 45 adults across 6 independent units set in 5 acres of beautiful grounds.
Oakdown House is a residential care home for adults with learning disabilities. Established in 1986, we have many years of experience in supporting residents to live a full and valued life as independently as possible. Person- centred care plans combined with key-worker input and great communication enable our staff to develop an awareness of each individuals needs. We support all of residents to fully participate in making choices about their care, within the safety and security of a residential service.
‘The Main House’ has three floors each operating as it’s own self contained flat designed so that residents can enjoy the benefits of smaller group living. On the ground floor we are able to support older residents who have more complex physical requirements including dementia.
‘The Bungalows’ nestled next to the main house at Oakdown can facilitate both independent living or high dependency accommodation with 24hr staffing support, should it be required. We have three bungalows, each bungalow has its own private front door, kitchen, bathroom and lounge with french doors that access our extensive and private gardens.
‘The Mews’ is a specialist unit that caters for four residents with severe epilepsy. Residents who live here are able to live independently from the rest of the site but at the same time they are able to access all the facilities that Oakdown has on site.
‘The Pavilion’ is a purpose-built unit with incorporated day-service centre and accessible garden that has 14 bedrooms. Fully wheelchair accessible, the living accommodation and bedrooms are individually tailored to support each individual’s specific need. Facilities include nurse call and listening-in systems, profile beds, mobile and over-head tracking hoists, large wet rooms and bathrooms.
Oakdown House provides a full and varied timetable of activities and opportunities including use of our IT and Sensory equipment. Music sessions & gardening clubs are hugely popular at Oakdown, as is our Summer ‘Open Day’ and Christmas parties. Our dedicated day service team also assist residents to attend activities within the community including college courses as well as paid or voluntary employment.
