I can be a daughter again, not a care giver.

My mom has been at the Oxford for a month now and I see her often. I am very pleased with the staff, the service, the location and the place itself. We arrived, unexpected, and were immediately taken on a tour. Mom is in the later stages of dementia. The care givers are well versed in dealing with this challenge. I get frequent feed back from the staff, who all are most approachable. This is where my mom will live out the last stage of her life. All of the burden of care giving has been taken over by the home. So now, I can enjoy being a daughter again and share those last precious memories until they disappear for ever.

A review of the Oxford by a British respite resident

Walking into the Oxford you would think you were entering a five star hotel. In the centre of the huge lounge area with its smart grey tiled flooring, high ceiling and white walls stands a piano with soft piano music playing in the background. Comfy sofas, marble dining tables, two wall mounted TV screens, a meeting room and tall potted tropical plants are also features, as is a bar area with tea, coffee, juice and snacks being offered throughout the day. Off the spacious corridors located on either side of the lounge are bedrooms with modern hardwood floors containing a bed, chair, nightstand, dresser and wardrobe with their own ensuite washroom. Outside is a stone patio with tables and chairs and lush landscaped garden. This is no hotel, however, but a new type of luxury care home – the only giveaway perhaps that it caters for a special type of client being the ceiling lift and pull cord call bell in each bedroom. The Oxford Senior Care is one of eight care homes owned by The Care Group in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island. Nestled in a quiet upmarket residential area of Abbotsford, the 84 bed facility reopened after renovation in March 2017. A registered nurse is on site 24/7 along with care aides who attend promptly to the needs of residents. Healthy and nutritious food is provided three times a day by professional chefs in consultation with a dietitian. Recreational activities are also offered ranging from physical exercise sessions to music and artistic: singing, drawing and painting to fun pursuits like bingo and baking. Other services include housekeeping, laundry and a visiting hairdresser once a week. In the words of Jennifer Wright, Director of Care, “the aim of the Oxford is a happy and healthy resident” and it is succeeding! For me personally the Oxford has proved to be a lifesaver going that extra mile to cater for all my care needs. As a 53-year-old Canadian permanent resident stuck in the UK with a neurological condition and limited mobility confining me to a wheelchair, I desperately wanted to return to BC but had specific requirements that most care homes couldn’t or wouldn’t meet. Thankfully I was introduced to the Oxford via A Place for Mom which finds appropriate care facilities for seniors and they provided me with a unique and outstanding respite care package that has exceeded all my expectations. A TV and telephone were put in my room in readiness for my arrival as a foreigner from abroad as I wasn’t able to bring my own. My needs are different to the average resident in terms of bathing and food – at the Oxford I can have a shower every day rather than once a week which is the usual provision and their kitchen cooks me an exceptional vegetarian and pescetarian menu to order. Wine is also purchased on request. The standard of care is superb – better than in any care home I’ve stayed in, the residents are quiet, pleasant and well-behaved, and every single member of staff is friendly and professional. Even the hairdresser is excellent! I can’t recommend the Oxford highly enough and can’t understand why every one of the 84 rooms isn’t filled with a long waiting list. Luckily for future residents there are still vacancies. I strongly advise a visit.

Great Care

I am very pleased with the care and attention the Oxford staff have provided for my sister [name removed]. Your facility is in a great location and provides all the needs and comforts for my sister. I would have no problem highly recommending the Oxford to anyone looking for a senior care home for a loved one.

Not impressed

Gorgeous place but very cold, clinical and asylum like. We found the manager was not interested in the patients or even us....my heart went out to those seniors. We walked out and all family members stated" there is NO way we are putting our family member there". They should go look at Hallmark and Bevan lodge and take a feather from their cap. The warmth family atmosphere, the activities and the fun the patients were having( even talking with them). That is where our family member will go.

Hi, beautiful place. Just seemed a little cold. Wasn't impressed with the person in charge. She was on her way out even though I had made an appt. Didn't care for the way she interacted with a resident.
