Situated in Saint Margarets, North Dublin, Oakwood Lodge is a charming and comfortable residency that promotes restorative practices and a sense of belonging.
With 50 accommodations, spacious grounds in natural surroundings and a prime location in the North Dublin catchment, Oakwood gives residents a caring home full of warmth, and respect.
A range of single and sharing accommodations are available, with residents' comfort and privacy our top priority. Our residents are strongly encouraged to make themselves at home, decorating their room with personal items, from photos and books to favourite throws, all of which help foster a sense of belonging.
Each room has its own ensuite facilities, either a toilet or full shower bathrooms. Every room is equipped with a bell to help those with mobility issues access assistance when they need it.
Step inside Oakwood any day of the week and you’ll always find a range of absorbing activities on offer. Our Activities Coordinators take the time to learn what residents are interested in, to plan a program that helps people make the most of each day. We also encourage plenty of impromptu activities throughout the week.
It’s an important part of our philosophy. We know how vital it is to take an active interest in life, not just for a resident’s physical vigor but for their mental health, too. And seeing our residents enjoying themselves and bonding over shared passions, makes us happy too.
For residents with dementia, our special Advisory Support is there to adapt activities and train staff on appropriate methods of inclusion.
Giving our residents, family members and friends a say in their care is important at Oakwood Lodge. We use a holistic approach, learning a resident’s likes and dislikes, and building a history of their previous medical treatment to create a whole picture, so we can provide the most effective and restorative care plan for every individual in our home. It’s all part of our resident-centred approach.
Care plans are reviewed regularly and adapted, should the resident’s situation or condition change. We take the time to make sure residents and their loved ones are comfortable with decisions. Our expert care team are trained to help reduce the anxiety and distress that may accompany such changes, especially those with cognitive issues such as dementia.
The spiritual needs of our residents are just as important to us as their physical and social comfort. We have relationships with a number of ministers, who regularly attend on residents, as well as conducting a weekly Mass and Eucharist within the home.
Oakwood Lodge is located near to the famous St Margaret’s Championship golf course, a regular haunt for professional golfers and enthusiasts. The Home itself is surrounded by natural charm and well positioned in the North Dublin catchment for easy access.
