What clients say about us
Since starting out in 1967 Oxford Aunts Care has built a reputation for providing excellent live-in care. We have strong word-of-mouth referrals and the positive feedback we get from family members and clients is a testament to the dedication and professionalism of our team.
Below are just a few examples of the feedback we receive.
Help with mobility
“I noticed that he became very obsessed about security; at 1am he’d be roaming and checking the windows were closed. Around the same time, I realised my father wasn’t eating or drinking properly and he was eventually hospitalised with severe dehydration”, explains Donald. It was obvious that Henry needed full-time care.”
It’s very reassuring that Dad is in a familiar environment. Despite the scope for ‘activities’ being limited now, he enjoys watching TV and gets out in his garden to enjoy a cup of tea under the willow tree – where he’s appreciated many pleasurable hours over the years.
Living with dementia
Oxford Aunts attended a case conference with his geriatrician and day centre manager and he was cared for at home for a further eighteen months.
“We were delighted that Alison was our first carer. She was a big help setting the whole thing up and helped iron out any teething problems.”

Short-term holiday care
Oxford Aunts liaised with her occupational therapist and nursing home and put three carers with full manual handling expertise into Lady C’s home.
“My mother thoroughly enjoyed herself. The team gave her a very happy and successful fortnight’s holiday back at her home; she did very well indeed.”
Lady C’s daughter
We assessed her whilst she was still in hospital and an Oxford Aunts carer went home with her and helped her get back on her feet again.
“We both found Ellen an admirable carer and felt that we had greatly benefited from her week’s stay here.”

Assisting loved ones
We carried out an immediate re-assessment and a carer was assigned to provide much needed support. The following day Mr A was admitted to hospital for a blood transfusion. When he came home, the carer spent each day with him, helping with personal care, ensuring he ate and drank sufficiently and generally giving reassurance.
“The Oxford Aunts staff went above and beyond the call of duty, giving 110%. We couldn't have asked for better care.”

Live-in care for a couple
Our carer was a terrific support to the family. She dealt with all sorts of things, like plumbing problems, without difficulty and always had my Aunt and Uncle's best interests at heart.
