Welcome to Fairfield

I would like to welcome you to Fairfield, an independent care home located in North Oxford. We provide long-term and short-term residential care for the older generation.

We are hugely proud of Fairfield and the wonderful home it has provided for over 70 years. We are also looking forward to moving into our brand new care home in June, when we will have a number of additional bedrooms and a new home that offers beautiful purpose built facilities and interiors.

The happiness of our residents, their families and staff makes for a wonderful environment to live and work in and we are committed to ensuring that each and every one of our residents receives the individual care and attention they deserve.

The convenient location of Fairfield allows residents the opportunity to embrace all that Summertown, North Oxford and Oxford City have to offer.

If you are interested in viewing Fairfield please do contact me to arrange a visit.

About Fairfield

Fairfield is an independent care home for the active elderly located in North Oxford.
We provide exceptional care with compassionate, respectful and experienced staff who focus on the happiness of our residents. We believe that all residents should regard Fairfield as their home, thus retaining their right to independence, dignity and privacy.

Fairfield has been a care home for the elderly since 1947 and has a long-standing reputation for delivering excellent standards of care. This ethos will continue when we move into our brand new, purpose built home in June.

Life at Fairfield is centred around the residents. We provide a wide range of daily activities, chosen to suit the varied personalities and individuals at Fairfield – there is something for everyone. Activities include regular entertainment from theatrical groups and musicians, visits from local schools and colleges, yoga, art classes, singing and even an expedition to some stables for horse riding at the request of one of our residents!

All bedrooms are en-suite and we also have some accommodation suitable for couples. Rooms are provided fully furnished although residents are invited to bring items of their own to make their rooms more personal to them.

The communal areas are comfortable and welcoming and include a large lounge with garden views as well as a fully equipped activities suite, IT, fitness and beauty rooms. The large glass windows and doors help provide a light and airy environment.

Residents are encouraged to enjoy the landscaped garden and participate in its planning where they are able.

The residents enjoy excellent quality food, including vegetables and fruit often grown in the gardens, and they are regularly asked to contribute ideas for future menus. All meals are cooked from fresh on the premises and are served in our dining room or, if required, in residents own rooms.

Staff are available 24 hours a day to offer care and support as and when required.

The current Fairfield building is a large Victorian red brick house in North Oxford that has been extensively extended over the years. In 2018 we will be moving into a purpose-built brand-new building designed to our specifications, which is being constructed in the grounds of the existing Fairfield. Our new home will offer facilities to the highest standards. The home will be brighter and more accessible, with large floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful gardens, larger social areas and rooms for quiet relaxation. All bedrooms will offer en-suite facilities. Find out more about our new building.

The staff provide a very friendly family atmosphere and treat the residents with affection and respect. My mother loves the staff and enjoys the activities offered.
