A converted Victorian mansion, our home has retained much of the charm of its original architecture while being organised with comfortable furnishings in mind. Residents coming to live at Oakworth Manor are treated as individuals and encouraged to take part and have a say in the running of the home itself. There are many activities to get involved in, which are always created with individual residents' needs taken into consideration. The provider believes in on-going training programmes, though carers are employed for their personal qualities as well.

List of Activities:

With our staff on hand at all times, each activity is designed to mentally & physically stimulate our residents, and to enhance their quality of life and wellbeing. This helps our staff to get to know each and every resident, and take pride in listening, understanding and responding to their needs.
Participation is entirely voluntary and families can take part if they wish. To further improve their feeling of well-being we provide our residents with weekly visits from local hairdressers, chiropodists, and local religious leaders of all denominations.
At Oakworth Manor, we firmly believe that people ought to eat the food they enjoy. A dietician might pull their hair our but we continue to adhere to the view that the enjoyment of food takes preference over healthy eating though hopefully the two things are not always in opposition.
We give food a very high priority. The main reason is, that it is one pleasure we can all enjoy, and secondly we have found that older people, especially when alone, just can't be bothered to prepare food for themselves so eating an appetising range of food is a vital aspect of feeling better.
All meals are prepared in the modern kitchen using fresh ingredients. Special diets are catered for and residents suggestions regarding the variety of the menus are encouraged.
Meals may be taken our elegant dining room, or in the residents own room if preferred. We at Oakworth Manor are exceedingly flexible and are more than happy to accommodate your routine. You may choose to continue your routine or adapt to life within our home.
