“I have been working in day services for several years, I love being able to bring meaningful and stimulating activities to every individual resident. It’s wonderful seeing everyone try new activities but not forgetting reminiscing about the ‘good old days’. Everyday I am happy to come into work with a beaming smile on my face.”

“I really enjoy working for Oakdown House and arriving with a positive attitude makes a difference to the residents who we support to promote their independence. Taking residents out on activities makes a difference to their days and puts a smile on their faces. That’s what it’s all about, seeing residents with a bright smile makes my job worth while. Also I have learnt so much from the training that Oakdown provides.”

“I came to Oakdown with some trepidation and apprehension after a bad experience working in care 30 years ago. But what a difference my Oakdown experience has been – I am so impressed. The residents live in a lovely homely environment, with choice and goals. The staff are hugely motivated. They are caring, with genuine love, affection and respect for the residents on every level.”
