Welcome to Triangle Care Home
Ours is a modern purpose-built home in Wheatley, Oxfordshire, where we offer nursing care 24 hours a day. The people who live here have varying needs, from specialist nursing support to general assistance with everyday living, and we provide for these in a compassionate, home-from-home environment.
All our rooms are tastefully decorated and have en-suite facilities, and we also have a large, bright conservatory, and lounges where residents pursue their hobbies. Outside, many take pleasure in helping maintain the mature garden, with its flower beds and patio area; or just relaxing and socialising, especially with family and friends when they come to visit. There is also ample free parking, which is a bit of a plus in Oxford!
Our dining rooms are warm and welcoming. Tables are laid with fresh linen and menus displayed to show the choices available. Depending on how they feel, residents can choose to have their meals in their own rooms or in our dining room. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
Life at Triangle Care Home
Thanks to our dedicated activities coordinator we have a full and varied activities calendar with events planned throughout the year. Singers and other professional entertainers often perform, and we enjoy visits from a Pets as Therapy dog.
We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time. Our Sunday lunch is particularly popular with residents and their relatives.
We organise trips to local places of interest, including the library, park and museum.
A local hairdresser visits every Tuesday and a chiropodist is available on request.
I cannot speak too highly of the standard of nursing care my father received during about 9 months at The Triangle. The team are kind, patient and always have time to discuss what is happening. The local doctors and specialists also speak highly of them. The fact they make good porridge was also a big bonus for my dad. I wish we didn't have to have privately owned care homes but if we do, then The Triangle is a good example.
I would come back again. I've really enjoyed it and would come again. I've had lots of laughs.
I'm happy and feel safe here. We've enjoyed trips out.
Purely that the sitting room could be improved with natural lighting instead of overhead lights being on all day! I am aware that it is extremely dark in the sitting room but if it was decorated in lighter colours and windows were more exposed it would be nicer for the residents.
We have had a relative in this care home some years ago who was treated with kindness so it was obvious that this friend (now resident and who lived many years in Wheatley) should go into the Triangle as all her friends could visit her as well as a few of her relatives.
I've enjoyed my stay, felt well looked after and safe here, staff have been pleasant to me.
Mum has been a resident here for four years and during that time she has responded very well to staff and carers. She is well looked after and is always cheerful and well turned out. All in all very happy with Triangle Care Home.
Good choice of foods at meal times. Friendly staff. Good sized rooms.
Excellent care. Nice food. Enjoyed a birds of prey show that came in. Joined in most day activities provided.

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.

A Wheatley care home has scored around 95% overall performance rating in a national survey of people living in care homes. The Triangle Care Home, scored 949 points from a possible maximum of 1,000 in the survey for “Your Care Rating".
The overall performance rating is derived from four core themes: staff and care, home comforts, choice and having a say and the quality of life being experienced by the residents.
The home, which is operated by Four Seasons Health Care, also scored the maximum possible 100% satisfaction rating for its standards of care and 100% for people being happy with life in the home.
The independent confidential survey was conducted by leading market research organisation Ipsos MORI.
The Triangle achieved the maximum possible 100% rating for being safe and secure and for the care team treating residents with kindness, dignity and respect. All respondents said that the care team understand them as an individual, are sensitive to how they are feeling and are capable of providing the care they need.
The home scored around 97% or 968 out of 1,000 around the theme of the quality of life for people living in the home.
It scored 100% among respondents for the choice of meals offered and for the quality of food served. It also scored 100% for offering activities for residents to take part in if they want.
Marjorie Condacos, Regional Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care, who run the home, said: "All the care team are delighted that in this independent national survey the residents at The Triangle rated the home so highly.
"The survey outcome corresponds with the responses we have had directly from residents, their relatives and care professionals who are able to give us instant feedback on a day to day basis about any aspect of care quality, by using iPads placed in the home with a touch-screen questionnaire linked to purpose designed software. This has been recording a 100% overall customer satisfaction rating.”
The home is rated as “good” by the Care Quality Commission. The CQC inspectors reported that residents told them: “Extraordinary, the staff have amazed me.” “Nothing is too much trouble". “We are like one big happy family.” A relative said: “Staff are caring, very much so. I cannot fault anyone of them. They are always happy and enthusiastic and they really connect with people here."
