Oakfield Care Home in Bath
We are planning the re-development of Oakfield Care Home as the facilities and environment at the home are not aligned to the standards we expect, and strive for at Barchester Healthcare. Due to the significant work needed, we are sorry to say that we are not able to do this whilst residents are living in the home, so have made the difficult decision to close the home whilst we do this. We hope that this would be completed in 2021, but it is not possible to say for sure.

Oakfield Care Home is located just north of Bath’s historic city centre a short distance from all the area’s amenities. You’ll find us near to the Botanical Gardens and the Royal United Hospital. With 26 bedrooms, offering nursing care and respite care, Oakfield is a close-knit community of staff and residents.
We want every day at Oakfield to be as good as it can be. It’s why we deliver care based around a complete understanding of each resident’s needs. This means we’ll create the right environment to keep you well and happy. You’ll decide how you want to live; we’ll make sure you always feel valued and comfortable.
Activities vary each week: from animal therapy and pampering, to quizzes and film afternoons. And everything’s flexible – if it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day. We’ve built excellent links to the community, allowing residents to continue their lives outside the home with ease. We make regular trips out into the community and have recently visited the local school for an opera afternoon, Royal Victoria Park, and a petting farm. We often have local entertainers, musicians, comedians and school children performing at the home too.
We have a spacious dining room on the ground floor, overlooking our tranquil garden, and meals are prepared by our Chef at the home. Our dining room always becomes a hub of conversation and laughter, and mealtimes give even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise. Whether it’s a traditional roast with all the trimmings or afternoon tea on the patio balcony, we encourage our residents to make the most of living in a friendly environment. There will be plenty of people to meet, and a lot of stories to share.

Hi, my name is Natalie, and I am the General Manager here at Oakfield. Welcome to our website!
Having spent a number of years working in social care, starting off as a care assistant and going on to be a deputy manager for another provider, and a local authority, I can now combine the skills and knowledge I have gained in that time and put them to good use here at Oakfield.
Please feel free to contact me and the home at any time. We are looking forward to meeting you!Get in touch Meet my team
