West Oak Care Home in Wokingham

West Oak is a purpose-built home with gardens in a quiet residential area in the market town of Wokingham, Berkshire, set within a quiet housing estate, close to Wokingham town centre. It is nearby to Wokingham train station, and the 190 bus route to Reading. The M4 and M3 motorways are also very easy to access. Wokingham town centre and a small park are a short walk away from the home.

West Oak provides 24-hour nursing care for older people, including people living with dementia, who are supported in a dedicated Memory Lane Community. The purpose-built home is set in pleasant gardens, winning Barchester in Bloom’s  internal competition in 2014 for its sensory garden.

West Oak has an inclusive, family atmosphere. We welcome visitors to the home and residents are encouraged to invite their relatives to join them at any time. We are always here to help.
