Welcome to Oak Tree Care Home
You'll find Oak Tree Care Home in Yate, South Gloucestershire. Here our well trained and dedicated nursing staff and carers provide for people living here permanently and on a respite basis.
Specialist care, including in our dedicated dementia unit, is offered at various levels to meet individual needs.
Ours is a purpose-built care home in landscaped gardens. Close by are shops, a pub, and a small park with duck pond.
Inside the home are lounges with flat-screen TVs where different activities take place. All bedrooms have en-suites - we love residents to personalise these spaces and have them decorated to their tastes so they feel more familiar and homely.
Life at Oak Tree Care Home
Our aim is to help people stay as well as they can for as long as they can, so we understand the importance of being active and entertained.
We have a diverse programme of activities and entertainment based on the interests of each person living here.
Our activities coordinators get together one-to-one with residents to help them do things like crosswords and writing letters. They also run a shop trolley, bringing people little necessities and favourite treats.
My mother is well looked after and often comments that the staff are nice and helpful and she knows their names. I visit at different times of the day and always feel welcome and there is a good atmosphere.
My aunt having only been at Oaktree for a month it is early days but I find both management and staff efficient and caring, happy to welcome me to see my aunt at any time. It is worrying when a relative you care for first enters a home, you are never sure whether you have done the right thing but Oaktree has allayed my fears. So very well done to all.
My father was resident in this home for only 6 weeks, however the nursing and pastoral care he received was excellent. He was always clean and tidy, and was comfortable. His medical needs were met and when it was apparent he was approaching the end of his life he was treated with dignity and compassion by all members of staff. His relatives and especially his wife were looked after with equal dignity and sympathy.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

Oak Tree Care Home in Yate has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.
The care team at Oak Tree Care Home is celebrating being accredited for a radically different approach of care for people living with dementia.
The Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs.
The pioneering home is part of Four Seasons Health Care which spent two years developing and testing the new approach. The home hosted an event for care commissioners, other health and social care professionals and relatives to introduce the Dementia Care Framework to them during an Alice in Wonderland themed party on Friday 21st April..
John Kirk, Managing Director for Four Seasons in Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, South West England and Bristol said: “This is next generation dementia care to make life better for the person with dementia and we are excited to offer it. A vital part of the Framework is the bespoke support and training the team throughout the home receives with additional support and training for those, working within our dementia services. This goes beyond the practicalities of caring for someone with dementia and through simulation gives them a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with dementia.”
At the heart of the Dementia Care Framework is a personal care review process which is continuously updated electronically by care staff to give a comprehensive and current picture of each resident.
Thought to be the first of its type worldwide, it is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.
The resident and family charters were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments. The resident charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences.
The family charter, sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.
Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.
