Oaklands is a home (with nursing care), providing a range of services for adults with physical disabilities.

Our home is a Victorian house set in extensive grounds near to Garstang, Lancashire. We are next to the Lancaster canal and have private access to the towpath. In the summer it is lovely to sit by the canal and enjoy a picnic as the narrowboats pass by.

Garstang is a pleasant market town with a range of shops and restaurants. Blackpool, Lancaster and Preston are also within easy driving distance.

Our residents make sure their home has a lively atmosphere. At their request, we offer all sorts of daily activities, including arts and crafts, drama, computer classes and quizzes.

We also like to hold events where we invite the local community to join us. These include parties and annual events like a Christmas dinner and an Easter egg hunt. We're always looking for new ideas for things to do!

Our fully-trained staff work hard to ensure everybody is happy in their home. We support our residents to be independent and to take part in community activities as they wish.
