Private Gardens & Patio

We are incredibly lucky at Oakdene Care Home to have our own beautiful gardens, alongside our private patio area, which allows our residents to have a quiet outside space to socialise with each other and their loved ones, as well as a place to stretch their legs in the warmer months.

We’re fortunate here at Oakdene Care Home to already be situated in such a beautiful part of England and to have the stunning Dorset countryside as an incredible backdrop to our lovely gardens. At Oakdene, we encourage our residents to get outside when the weather’s just right and soak up as much vitamin D as possible. When you have access to gardens this pretty, why wouldn’t you?

Take Time Out to Enjoy Nature

When the weather is nice, our Activity Coordinators plan a variety of activities in our garden, including gardening. Members can join the gardening club, which helps residents plant herbs in the herb garden, maintain the many plants and flowers across the property, and refill bird feeders. There is always something that can be done to help. We encourage our people to participate in outdoor activities for the sake of their health and social well-being.

Outdoor Activities Galore

Residents and staff at Oakdene Care Home always look forward to the summer months, as that means we can spend a lot more time outside in our gardens. We really do make every effort to take advantage of the dry, warm weather whenever possible, which is why we spend a lot of time organising outdoor tea parties, outside entertainment, and lots of opportunities to show off our resident’s green thumbs. We also like to make sure that everyone has the chance to get out onto our bowling green and show off their sporting skills.

What You’ll Find in Our Gardens & Patio Area

Residents at Oakdene Care Home have access to the greatest, five-star facilities available. Our lovely private gardens and patio area are open all year and we encourage our residents to take full advantage of them as often as possible, especially when the weather is something to celebrate.

Beautiful Garden Pond

One thing we hear time and time again from our residents and visitors is how much they enjoy our beautiful garden pond here at Oakdene. It has been described as a relaxing place for all of our residents and their guests to spend their sunny afternoons. We recommend using this area to either socialise, or relax with a good book.

Well-Kept Bowling Green

Many of our residents like to take full advantage of our bowling green here at Oakdene Care Home. When their friends, family and loved ones come to visit our home, residents can enjoy a game or two with their guests, as well as other friendly residents. True, our garden is a place of relaxation, but it’s also a place of fun, games, and plenty of excitement.

Available Raised Planters

One of the main focal points of our private garden and patio area is our raised planters. This helps contribute to a lively atmosphere. We urge people to enjoy the relaxing activity of planting; with so many flowers and plants, everyone has the chance to get their hands dirty and plant their own flowers, whether that’s by themselves or with the help of another team member.
