Supporting independent living at home is our priority. The 1 Oak team specialise in providing high quality care to support you around the house in a variety of ways. You may need support getting in and out of bed, preparing meals, washing or general mobility support. Our carers are there to help you and available from just 30 minute appointments to 24 hours per day.
Respite care is short-term rest periods for your family or friends who usually provide care. We aim to understand your needs and take over seamlessly, allowing your family or friends to take a rest and recharge. This could be for a few hours, a few days to as many days as you require.
Every hospital has their own policy for discharging patients who may suffer from temporary or permanent impairment which they may not previously have had. We understand that each hospital stay and recovery is different, at 1 Oak we work with the hospital team to ensure you can resume life at home as soon as possible.
Day trips are important to everyone and sometimes special occasions can be a worry for you and your family. Whether you need support to go shopping yourself, a grandchild’s christening or maybe a family wedding – we can be with you for your whole trip. From arranging transport to having a carer with you we will see to it that the trip is a success and give you some independence.
Squeaky door? Lawn getting too long? Our in-house Maintenance team are there to help when you need them. If our team are unable to do the work themselves they will work to ensure you don’t pay too much! Simply call us to book an appointment or use the contact us page to send us an enquiry.
The 1 Oak cleaning team are there for weekly, fortnightly or occasional appointments at times to suit you. Other services our team offer are dog walking, sewing and repairing clothing, laundry and ironing (either at your home during a care visit or we can collect and deliver it for you). All our cleaners come with glowing references, DBS checks and superb attention to detail when it comes to your home.
Staying in touch with family is so important and we believe that shouldn’t just be for the youth. Whether it is help to send text messages and emails or setting up internet and computers we can help. Our 1 Oak Technical team are patient, use jargon free language and can visit you at a time to suit.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS & THEIR RELATIVES SAY
I am finding the carers excellent in every way. They are kind, supportive and caring to my dad, who is terminally ill. I have no faults with them at all.
I have used 1 Oak Home Care for the last four years since my mother came to live with me as she needed 24-hour care. I would not be able to manage without the expert help all the girls from 1 Oak give me and my mum. They all offer exceptional care and concern towards my mum as she is now bedbound and has dementia, and is also very deaf. Without their first-class care, she wouldn’t still be with us. I am very grateful to all the staff from 1 Oak for all their kindness and excellent work.
1 Oak provided both palliative care and dementia care for my parents. The efficiency of putting this in place at short notice was remarkable. All the carers showed enormous support and kindness and went above and beyond to ensure that personal care was always given with dignity. The house was always spotless and washing up to date. The communication was exemplary. 1 Oak provided trips out in the car for mother as a change of scene and was always happy to take her into the garden. My mother wanted to take 1 Oak ladies into her care home with her!
