By C W (Daughter of Resident) 29/05/2018, The Oast Residential Care Home in Maidstone

Mum became a resident in September 2017 after no longer being able, or wishing to live alone. She now seems a lot happier and feels safe and secure at all times. And we feel reassured that she is surrounded by friendly, caring and very approachable staff 24/7 which gives us peace of mind that Mum is well cared for and respected. Thank you to the manager and all the staff at The Oast.

By Keith P (Son of Resident) 08/05/2018, The Oast Residential Care Home in Maidstone

My father was a resident for the last six months and sadly passed away this weekend. We have nothing but praise for the care which he received in The Oast especially since his return from the hospital. He was quite content there and all the staff were very caring towards him. They have a lovely new conservatory which unfortunately he was too ill to use.The manager and all her staff are really professional and very approachable.

By Pauline K (Daughter of Resident) 17/04/2019, The Oast Residential Care Home in Maidstone

My Dad had one week's respite care in May 2017. The staff were very warm and welcoming at all times. They ensured he joined in activities which he really enjoyed. His room was light and airy. Dad has vascular dementia and can be very unsettled but he was well looked after and was fine. When we picked him up after his week's stay he said: "I want to leave my case here for next time I come". I think that shows how happy he was at The Oast.

By G G (Son-in-Law of Resident) 17/05/2016, The Oast Residential Care Home in Maidstone

Since becoming a resident my mother-in-law has improved not only physically but mentally too she seems to enjoy life so much more, there's a contentment and feeling of happiness I've not seen for a long time, she has everything she needs warmth, friends, good food, respect and a warmth of caring that runs deep in all the staff, they give so much to all those at the home. If all homes were run like The Oast old age would hold no fear for anyone, I hold a deep respect for all who work at The Oast.

By James G (Son of Resident) 10/05/2016, The Oast Residential Care Home in Maidstone

The Oast is well managed, and the staff are helpful and friendly. The residents in general seem happy and are well cared for. I would recommend The Oast to anyone, knowing their loved ones would be well cared for.

By Valerie (Daughter of Resident) 28/04/2016, The Oast Residential Care Home in Maidstone

My Godmother has just passed away after being in The Oast for nearly 3 years. I have to say I would happily go into The Oast when my turn comes. It is, without doubt, the best Care Home in the South East, the Manager and staff are truly caring and compassionate and when my Godmother was dying someone was with her and holding her hand right up to the end. Whenever she wanted something they would go above and beyond to supply it for her and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Can't praise them highly enough.
