Admissions

Fairfield is a home for the active elderly and aims to preserve the concept that residents should regard Fairfield as their home, thus retaining their right to independence, dignity and privacy.

Fairfield is a residential home for elderly people, primarily providing long-stay accommodation.

Fairfield is registered with Oxfordshire County Council as a residential home for the elderly, not a nursing home, and therefore new residents will only be accepted if they are mobile and independent. We acknowledge that the need for increased levels of assistance may increase over time and we endeavour to allow residents to remain with us indefinitely by providing levels of care to suit each individual for as long as possible.

We have some short-stay accommodation available for respite care to relieve carers or families for holidays or simply to provide a break.

I am always impressed by the level of professionalism and care provided. The staff are genuinely warm, friendly, nurturing, attentive and good humoured.
Sarah, friend of resident
