Our history

Oxford Aunts was started in 1967 by two sisters and a friend, who wanted to provide good quality home services to those in the local area. The business was focused on offering cleaning, baby-sitting services and domiciliary care.

With an entrepreneurial spirit the team expanded the Oxford Aunts’ service in 1984 to offer families looking for long-term care with a real alternative to moving their loved one into a care home and launched its live-in care service.

Over the past 30 years, Oxford Aunts has established a reputation for high quality live-in care throughout Oxfordshire and its surrounding counties. We have helped thousands of families to enable them to live well at home with the support of an experienced, trained and dedicated carer.

Our service is rated ‘Good’ by CQC in all five measures – safe, caring, effective, responsive and well-led – which we know provides families with peace of mind that their loved one or family member is receiving the highest standards of live-in care at a time they need it most.
