Specialist care & nursing homes in Welwyn Garden City

Oakview Lodge Nursing Home provides family-led nursing, residential and dementia care in a quiet area of the beautiful Welwyn Garden City. Situated on the site of the old Queen Elizabeth Hospital, our friendly and compassionate care team delivers outstanding, personalised care to residents with a range of needs. We understand that everyone is different, so we go out of our way to get to know each person individually. Our care plans are designed to foster independence for both our more-able residents and those living with dementia. For those with greater needs, our specialist on-site nurses offer dedicated medical attention to ensure the best quality of life possible in a comfortable and calming environment.

Oakview Lodge has become a well-established part of the local community, welcoming a variety of guests and groups, as well as hosting regular events. This, alongside our activities and well-being programme, ensures that every resident not only receives the highest level of care but enjoys a rich and varied life, where the small things make a big difference. Despite this, the thought of going into care can be daunting for many, so, at Oakview Lodge, we are here to support you in the next chapter of life. Call us today on 01707 375 345 for a confidential chat or drop in and visit us at any time.

Bedrooms

All of our sixty-four bedrooms at Oakview Lodge are tastefully and comfortably furnished, with plenty of scope for people to bring their own belongings to make the space their own. Our rooms are light and spacious, with en-suite with walk-in shower rooms to promote dignity and privacy.

Lounge & Dining

We have several communal areas throughout the home, all of which are luxurious and comfortably furnished, with thoughtful touches throughout to make people feel relaxed and at home. Dining areas are clean and fresh with tables laid ready for people to enjoy their next meal, making them inviting and sociable spaces.

Pub

The Hatfield Arms Pub is one of our most popular facilities. Whether it’s half a lager, a fruit juice or a glass of wine, time spent in the pub is a real social occasion. We want our residents to enjoy life, to be able to relax and share good times with friends, we host pub quizzes and games too.

Teashop

Serving hot and cold beverages, and scrumptious cakes and bakes are available every day served by our front of house team in Hattie’s tearoom. Residents often entertain their guests and visitors and we host regular activities and events here, making it a popular destination within our home.

Gym

Our gym is available for residents to enjoy light exercise, assisted by our Activities team. We’ve found that light exercise helps improve mobility and reduces the risk of falls and can also help as part of rehabilitation programmes.

Private Dining Room

For more formal or special family occasions, families can take advantage of our private dining room. The dining room will be your space for the day to relax and enjoy time with family and friends, just as you would at home. Our chef and hospitality team will be at your disposal, providing a bespoke menu to make birthdays and anniversaries truly special and memorable occasions.

Cinema

Movie night is a weekly highlight at Oakview Lodge Nursing Home. Whether it’s a classic black and white film or the latest blockbuster, we’re always taking requests from our residents. Our cinema rooms are specially designed for the comfort of all residents to ensure those with visual or hearing difficulties can enjoy the full experience too.

Garden

For many of our residents spending time in the garden is their favourite pastime. Our accessible and dementia-friendly outdoor spaces are well used by residents for relaxing on a sunny day, enjoying garden games and getting involved in gardening tasks. Some residents even have their own personal flowerbeds or veg patches to tend to!

Hair & Beauty

Our residents love to visit our in-house hair salon for a regular well-being boost, our wonderful hairdresser treats each person to their very own luxurious personalised weekly hair treat. Our in-house salon features a beauty bar for nail painting and hand pampering, and to top-off our beauty provision, residents can also enjoy time in our relaxing spa.

Fine Dining Experience

At Oakview Lodge care home, we provide high-quality, nutritious, tasty meals for our residents created by our in-house chefs. Our menus are updated on a weekly basis and according to the season - we strive to source local ingredients and our chefs are always happy to make dishes to order.

For Ben, our Chef, the challenge is to keep residents excited about coming to the dining table for their meals, every single day. Each dish is individually plated by Ben and his team and is presented to restaurant standards. Our hospitality team are on hand to look after residents both during and in between mealtimes, too.  In addition, drinks and snacks are freely available throughout the day -  nothing is too much trouble at Oakview Lodge.
