Oaklands Care Home in Cambridge

Oaklands is a new addition to our Hilton Park Care Centre community. Opened in October 2008 Oaklands is a purpose-built facility for people living with dementia and young people with physical challenges. The home is set in beautiful ground on the outskirts of Bottisham Village, where we are an integral part of a wider community.

Dementia Care

The home's specialist Memory Lane Community utilises a careful blend of skills and techniques developed by leading experts in the field of dementia care, incorporating person-centred design in its use of colour and cues to help individuals navigate through the home, whilst thoughtful interior design features, such us adapted crockery and tableware assists with reminiscence. Communities are broken up into separate units with a family feel so people can feel safe and comfortable. Care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person-centred approach. Staffing levels reflect the needs of residents, and people living with dementia are offered a range of activities to help preserve life skills, support interactions and retain a sense of purpose and selfhood.

Oaklands Care Home has well-maintained and secure internal gardens so that people can enjoy the outdoors in safety. The home has hairdressing facilities, a café -style reception area, restaurant-style dining and lovely, relaxing communal areas.

Oaklands offers a real community feel. We have three units within the home. Two are dedicated Memory Lane communitues and the remaining unit is for younger people with disabilities. We have given all units street names to create a village feel:  each bedroom door even has its own letter box and door knocker.

Our experienced and highly qualified team delivers high quality care, giving people quality support that is in a league of its own, ensuring individuals remain in control of their lives. Working within the philosophy of person-centred care, the care team supports each individual in making their own decisions and choices regarding daily life and social activity.

We welcome visitors and enquiries, so please feel free to drop in to see us or to call.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Geanina Tinca

General Manager

Hello, my name is Geanina, and I am the General Manager here at Oaklands Care Home. Welcome to our website!

I qualified as a Nurse over 14 years ago and joined Barchester as a General Manager in 2107.

Caring for frail older people has always been very close to my heart and myself, and my team here at Oakands are committed to ensure that all of our residents receive the highest quality care at all times.

It is hugely rewarding to be able to support our residents and help them to lead fully enriched lives in their new home. I cannot praise my team enough and it gives me great pleasure to help mentor and develop their nursing careers with Barchester too!

I have always believed in a very “hands on” approach to running a home, as I feel that it is the best way to build relationships and get to thoroughly know our residents even more.

My door is always open to anyone, even if only for a cup of tea and a chat! If I can be of any help with your care enquiry, please do not hesitate to contact our home and I will do my upmost to assist you in whatever way I can.

I look forward to welcoming you at Oaklands very soon!
