Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Ultimate Care Karadean Court is the only specialist aged care facility in Oxford, a tranquil rural town with beautiful mountain views. Karadean Court is close to local shops, cafes and the library. We have spacious rooms, premium studio rooms and large lounges looking out to the stunning views over the hills in mid-Canterbury. Our chef creates exceptional meals for all of our residents. The level of care is exceptional, and friendly staff like to have a laugh and a joke with residents. With an excellent day care and popular activities programme, all residents are made to feel welcome, safe in the knowledge that there is 24 hour emergency support. We would love to show you around and talk with you about how we can help you or your loved one with their needs and goals.
"We have a beautiful home, overlooking the hills surrounding Oxford, and there are always lovely inviting smells wafting from the kitchen. Our residents remain very active and supportive of each other, and our staff are totally committed to providing outstanding care".

Karadean Testimonials:

“My sister and I would like to express our gratitude to you and your staff for the wonderful care you provide”... We chose Karadean for the hills and surrounding countryside... My lasting impression is of the willingness of your staff to attend to any issue along with the support and friendship given to my Mum”.

“Wonderful caring atmosphere, that only becomes home because people like your team care like a family”
