Description
Ultimate Care Cambridge Oakdale is located in Leamington, a short distance away from the charming town of Cambridge, with rural views. We offer a dementia facility providing specialised, care for those assessed requiring a secure environment. Our dementia unit is a brand new purpose-built facility that complements the existing rest home which has recently been fully refurbished to a very high standard.

Along with high quality accommodation, our landscaped gardens offer views across the commons. Local amenities and shops are within walking distance, and transport is provided for community activities and twice weekly outings.

With an extensive programme designed to meet the needs of our residents that require a secure environment the rest home has something for everyone, from quizzes, movie nights and concerts, through to mini golf, crafts and sing-a-longs. All meals are cooked on the premises and menus are reviewed by our dietician
