Luxury Living and Exceptional Care Home in Oxfordshire

We are delighted to welcome you to our brand new care home in Cumnor Hill, Oxfordshire where we offer residents the chance to experience luxury living and exceptional care. We provide residential, nursing, dementia, respite and day care in a stimulating, beautiful environment just outside the City of Oxford.

There are many things which set Cumnor Hill House apart from other care homes which you can find out more about throughout this website and our brochure. There are two which I believe stand out and help to shape our ethos:

Firstly, we are very selective when recruiting our staff and in return for them being the best at what they do, we pay everyone who works with us above the Living Wage. We believe this is a first in the local market and ensures a happy environment within the home, while recognising the value of the care profession.

Secondly, we offer one clear, all-inclusive weekly price to our residents. This reduces worry and helps people relax as well as being able to plan ahead.

We are proud of what we have achieved at Cumnor Hill House and we invite everyone who is interested in the home to visit us in person. Please contact me to arrange a convenient time – I very much look forward to meeting you soon.

Choosing the right care

It might seem like an obvious thing to say if you are used to living independently, but it is one of the biggest fears of elderly people looking at care homes – that they will just become a number, and one’s independence will naturally ebb away. We set out to counter this straight away and focusing on the individual is the best way of helping people to settle quickly in order that they can get on with enjoying life.

While we're incredibly proud of Cumnor Hill House's state-of-the-art design, its facilities, its comfortable rooms and its attractive furnishings, our priority is to deliver the best care possible, while never losing sight of the happiness of each and every resident. There are as many personalities in our home as there are residents; providing customised lifestyle care comes as naturally to us as ensuring residents receive the required medical care.

Seeing Is Believing

The wider community

We judge the success of our care home by the happiness of our residents, many of whom will already be local to the area of Cumnor and Oxford. We want our home to be as much a part of the local community as the local school, shop and pub are, and we want our residents and staff to be involved as much as possible. Here is one example of how we do that.

We visited Cumnor Cricket Club to find out. The club was incredibly welcoming and we are delighted to be able to help with sponsorship for the coming year. We wish all teams involved the best of luck and we look forward to visiting some matches.

We are always looking for new and different activities for our residents to enjoy; Trips out, entertainment in the home, demonstrations and interesting talks. If you would like to get involved, contact our activities and events manager.

Message from Seamus Halton, CEO Berkley Care Group

We are extremely disappointed to have received this outcome from our first CQC inspection in April 2017. Following this a new permanent manager was appointed in late April. She has made huge progress in improving the home in a very short time and we look forward to our next inspection.
