Oakdene Care Home and the Wimborne Minster Area

Oakdene Care Home and the Wimborne Minster Area

Oakdene Care Home welcomes all of its residents to sit back, breathe in the fresh air, and relax. We encourage all of our residents to enjoy the Dorset countryside, and more importantly, really experience all that Wimborne Minster has to offer. Whatever the weather, we believe that Wimborne Minster is a place full of excitement and adventure, and a place with lots and lots to explore and discover. 

Although the Activities Coordinators here at Oakdene Care Home sometimes like to adventure a little further afield when it comes to ensuring our residents have fantastic days out, sometimes you can have some of the best times of your life right on your very own doorstep. For example, sometimes our team members organise exciting days out to Bournemouth beach in the warmer months. However, we find that some of the best days out are to the plethora of local garden centres, and live performances right in the middle of town.

What’s brilliant about our location, and the location of Wimborne Minster is that it’s so close to a variety of other towns and cities. This means that if you happen to venture a little further out, you can easily do so. Whether you decide to drive or get public transport, you’ll always be well connected and able to do the things you love. Besides, at Oakdene Care Home we always look after our residents and make sure they’re living their lives to the fullest.

Care Tailored To Suit You, Delivered By Care Professionals

When it comes to unrivalled levels of individualised care, our incredible team at Oakdene Care Home will be difficult to beat. We take pride in ensuring that our residents are well taken care of and that our residents always have the opportunity to live the life they want to. Two of the most important aspects of any care is ensuring the highest levels of dignity and privacy are being adhered to, and that’s something that we here at Oakdene Care Home take incredibly seriously. However, we also know that no two residents are ever the same, which is why we take so much care in putting together the perfect individualised care plan for each and every new member of the Oakdene Care Home family.

Respite Care in Wimborne Minster

We recognise that everyone deserves a break from time to time. We’ve installed a Respite Care Package here at Oakdene Care Home, to provide the primary caregiver with some much-needed rest. We’ve devised a short-term respite package to relieve strain and free up time, whether it’s to aid a loved one with additional nursing requirements after a short spell in the hospital to help them get back on their feet or to recharge, receive some medical treatment for yourself, or just some time out. Our Respite Care is customised to each individual resident and can last anywhere from a week to a few months.

What’s Local to Oakdene Care Home?

Here at Oakdene Care Home, we’re very fortunate to be surrounded by fantastic scenery and incredible views, making our home very popular amongst residents, loved ones and visitors. Wimborne Minster is a historical market town situated in the heart of Dorset, and with so much beautiful countryside right on your doorstep, why wouldn’t you want to get out and about and explore the local sites that are exciting to visit come rain or shine. 

Why not visit one of our many heritage sites that are scattered all about our town? Fondly described as “The Treasures of Wimborne”, this town is home to three incredible attractions that people of all ages can enjoy. Whether you want to take in the beautiful architecture of the Minster Church, the interesting and ever-changing exhibitions at Walford Mill Crafts, or the very small Model Town that’s guaranteed to leave a big impact, you’ll never run out of things to excite and amaze the entire family.


However, if history isn’t really your thing, there’s absolutely no need to panic. What’s fantastic about Wimborne Minster is that it’s also a market town, meaning there are lots and lots of opportunities for shopping, eating, and taking in a little bit of live entertainment every now and then. Whether the sun is shining down or the rain is hitting the cobbles, there are lots of bars and restaurants with both inside and outside seating options in the town centre, meaning no matter what, you’ll get to experience a different side of Wimborne.

Being a town that’s so surrounded by beautiful countryside areas, it would be a shame to miss out on a visit to Moors Valley Country Park. Whether you’re visiting solo or with your closest friends and family members, sometimes you just can’t beat an afternoon wandering around the forest and really taking the opportunity to be at one with nature. However, as with all of these exciting attractions in Wimborne Minster, we always recommend booking your tickets or entry slots in advance to guarantee that you don’t miss out on the fun.
