We are situated in the beautiful market town of Chipping Norton in the gorgeous, rolling Cotswold Hills in the district of Oxfordshire, about 12 miles (19 km) southwest of Banbury and 18 miles (29 km) northwest of Oxford. We provide 24-hour nursing care and personal support to frail older people, people with long term illnesses, people with sensory deficits and people living with dementia, who are cared for in our specialist ‘Memory Lane’ community.

Our approach to care is based on careful assessments leading to a personalised and regularly reviewed care plan. Drawn up with the individual concerned and with relatives the care plan provides the basis for medical and rehabilitative work, making sure that dietary needs and preferences are met and the basis for our activities work, which we see as the heart of what we do - to keep up to date with our latest activities and events, please keep popping back to our website to see what we have been up to and what is coming up.

The Care Quality Commission, independent regulator for the care sector in England on its last visit noted ‘positive interactions between people and carers,’ and care workers ‘showing genuine warmth.’ They recorded that residents said: ‘It is good here. I like the food, too,’ ‘I’ve been here four years. I like it. The carers are excellent,’ and ‘I have complete faith in the carers. They are wonderful.’ A relative told them: ‘My mother is in good hands here
