About The Oaks

At The Oaks Care Home, in Lexden, Colchester, we are pleased to provide care for up to 61 older people who require residential or nursing support, or who are living with dementia. There’s always a full diary thanks to our dedicated Activities Coodinator, meal times are carefully planned with delicious menu choices, and our well managed, fully trained team of carers and nurses are on hand 24/7, whenever you need them.

So much more than just a care home.

It is a great comfort to know that she is not alone and much loved and cared for.

The Oaks was completely refurbished to a high standard in summer 2017. Spacious and with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, bedrooms are beautifully decorated, while the family room, breakfast room, cinema room and open-plan dining room offer the perfect place for you to relax or socialise in. The Oaks has the added benefit of being surrounded by large gardens and well manicured lawns, which were created by award winning gardener, author and lecturer, Beth Chatto.

We can provide a variety of types of care, dependent on your assessed requirements. Please contact us to discuss your needs and see if we can help.


Your family and friends are welcome to visit at any time. There is ample free parking space available.
