ABOUT LOCAL CARE HOME - GREEN GATES NURSING HOME
Green Gates nestles in a pleasant, leafy part of Summertown, just five miles from Oxford town centre. This grand Victorian building has been sympathetically updated to include every modern comfort. Many original features, such as the wonderful stained glass windows in the entrance hall, have been retained.
The care we offer
A range of care is provided at Green Gates - including nursing, convalescence, palliative, respite and specialist care for those with Parkinson’s disease.
The home's chef manager provides a wide range of balanced, nutritious dishes using the freshest seasonal ingredients and reflecting the preferences and dietary requirements of residents. Wine and sherry are served on request and on special occasions. All menus are clearly displayed on the wall and at dining tables, and carers are always on hand to offer assistance as required.
Snacks are available at any time and fresh water is delivered to residents' rooms every day. A delicious homemade cake is served daily with afternoon tea, and we make sure that on their birthdays each resident receives a celebratory meal and a personalised cake to make their day extra special.
We not only supply the nursing needs of our residents, we also work tirelessly to fulfil their social needs. There is a spacious activities room, which has its own kitchen and hairdressing salon. Our dedicated activity co-ordinator arranges a schedule of daily things to do, including musical afternoons, painting, drama, fun filled games and quizzes, baking and gentle gardening.
Musicians and entertainers regularly visit, and outings to Oxford are frequently arranged for those who wish to participate. Every month there is a special themed event for residents to look forward to and friends and relatives are most welcome to join in with any of our activities.
