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.

Our Values

At Oxford Aunts we are very proud of the high standards of care we have become renowned for.  Our approach and the way we work is guided by a set of values that are evidenced in everything we do.  All our dedicated carers are recruited against these values to ensure they have the characteristics that are important to us and behave in a way that is aligned to our culture.

Person-centred

We treat all our clients as individuals and our care is highly personalised to ensure they can live well in a way they wish.  Our carers are focused on providing care that promotes choice and independence with all the support needed.

Supportive

We take immense pride in the high levels of support we provide our clients, their families and our carers.  Our focus is to provide reassurance and peace of mind every step of the way, listening to our clients and responding positively to the needs of others.

Professional

We always conduct ourselves in a professional manner, whist being friendly, sensitive and approachable.  Through our in-depth knowledge of live-in care, we are able to provide expert advice to clients, carers and families as and when they need it.
