Oaklands is a specialist residential service with nursing, supporting individuals with learning disabilities and complex needs in Hexham, Northumberland. The team support individuals who have additional mental or physical health needs and behaviours that may challenge.

The service is currently undergoing exciting developments to create single occupancy living for 5 individuals who may require additional staff support.

Upon completion in Spring 2021, the service will have:

5 single occupancy flats – These self-contained living areas provide the opportunity for 5 individuals with more challenging needs to live in their own space with staff support. Each flat has a lounge, kitchen/diner, en-suite bedroom as well as a staff observation area. In addition one of the flats is located away from the main house and has its own front door and garden.

10 en-suite bedrooms with multiple lounge and dining facilities. Other facilities within the service that are accessible for all individuals include a sensory room, large garden, café area and a conservatory.

Oaklands is a large detached property with extensive living areas. Close to the historic market town of Hexham, residents can access a good choice of recreational and leisure facilities. These include a swimming pool, a library, parks and shops, as well as the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Oaklands has a dedicated activity coordinator who supports residents to have individual activity plans, created based on each person’s likes and hobbies. Individuals are supported to plan menus, shop and prepare food with support to increase their daily living skills in readiness for moving on.

Our goal is to enable residents to structure their time, build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self-care, work and leisure, as appropriate to their needs.
