Modern care home in North Oxford

We moved into a new purpose built care home on 3rd July 2018. Located in North Oxford just behind the original Victorian home, the new building provides 40 en-suite bedrooms, some of which are suitable for couples, and high quality communal facilities including a large lounge, a dining room, a fully equipped activities suite with IT, wellness and beauty rooms as well as a large landscaped garden. There are large ceiling to floor windows to fill the rooms with light and let the outside in.

We also have a small assisted living unit in the grounds, regulated by CQC, for more independent living but with the additional support of care visits, housekeeping and meals.

Fairfield is passionate about supporting residents so that they can continue to live independent lives and to make the most of our North Oxford connections, and the new building further strengthens this with easier accessibility and enhanced amenities.

Of course, it is people that make a building into a home and we have a wonderful Fairfield ethos of providing residents with exceptional care in the a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Fairfield has an ethos which remains so genuinely supportive and stimulating, enriching the lives of all
