Service Overview

Oakland House is a Nursing care home that provides intervention for adults (male and female) aged over 18 years that need continuing care support and who have enduring mental health/complex needs. It is currently registered to provide care for 38 people who may be informal or subject to certain conditions under the Mental Health Act 1983.  

The aim is to provide appropriate, high quality, nursing care and treatment using a person centred approach that responds to any changes in the individual’s needs.

All treatment and care is delivered through the Care Programme Approach/Care Review where each service user is fully involved in their individual care planning as part of their care pathway. We ensure that the service users feel comfortable within the environment to optimise recovery by providing a homely atmosphere on each unit. The primary objective is to facilitate as normal as possible a life for our service users, taking into account their illness, individual needs and wishes.

​Equilibrium Healthcare shall admit service users, regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.

We believe that every person who is referred and admitted to our services should do so as a planned process of care and should be supported and empowered through the process, ensuring that an appropriate care package can be provided for the individual service user. We will consider emergency admissions provided a full assessment of needs are carried out prior to admission.
To make a referral please contact Dale Ward via any of the following contact details:

We ask that you provide us with necessary information to aid the assessment process:

  • Comprehensive needs assessment
  • Current care plan or care programme approach summary
  • Current risk assessment or most recent
  • Tribunal report (if necessary)

Dale will then contact you to discuss funding and organise an appropriate assessment date and time.

Each referred person will have a comprehensive multi -disciplinary assessment prior to admission; this will determine suitability for the service and determine the care package required to meet their needs.
