Oaklands

Anick Road, Hexham, Northumberland, NE46 4JR

Oaklands is a specialist residential service supporting up to 15 people with learning disabilities and complex needs. The team also supports individuals who have additional mental or physical health needs, and complex behaviours.

The service is a large detached property with extensive living areas. This means that residents can choose if they want to be in the gender specific lounges, or in mixed company. Everyone has their own bedroom, which they are supported to decorate and personalise. There is a conservatory with access to a spacious and private garden, with seating and picnic areas. We also have a greenhouse and raised flower beds for people to practice their gardening skills. Outside there is also a lovely accessible sensory garden.

Oaklands is close to the historic market town of Hexham, which hosts a good choice of recreational and leisure facilities for people to access. 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. People 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 people to structure their time, build relationships and establish a balance between therapy, self-care, work and leisure, as appropriate to their individual needs.

People may come to Oaklands for many reasons. They may be moving on from a hospital setting or may require a service which can support them more than a residential placement. It may be that they are leaving a residential or home setting and require a little support during a difficult period in their life, or they could be on a pathway to a place of their own.
