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.
