Oxford House Nursing Home was established in Berkshire in 1980. The founders, Teresa and Ted Johnston, created it out of a desire to provide care for the elderly.

The Johnston family remain proprietors of Oxford House today.

Through years of experience, we understand what an emotional upheaval it can be finding a new home for someone you love. It's fraught with anxiety and complex worries.

At Oxford House, we can assist you and your family through the confusion and choices you face.

Our original family ethos remains at Oxford House, so we can reassure and comfort relatives through difficult decision making processes. We often suggest that prospective residents spend a few days or a week at the home on a trial basis - this allows the family and their loved one an opportunity to get a feel for the home in advance of making a long term commitment. This is often treated like a holiday.

We encourage family to visit as frequently as possible, at any time of day. We provide a varied range of home cooked food and constantly update our activity schedules. We find that one frequent concern is whether elderly residents are left alone for long periods. At Oxford House, making sure that residents are as active, or as private, as they wish to be is a priority.

From piano playing, to gardening, story telling, bell ringing and visits by pets, there is always something to do. We are proud of our beautiful gardens which the residents have an active hand in, recently winning a prestigious local award for outstanding gardens.
