Yarnton Residential and Nursing Home


Overlooking fields and woodland, Sanctuary Care’s Yarnton Residential and Nursing Home is a beautiful care home with stunning gardens, spacious ensuite bedrooms and lots of wonderful spaces to enjoy.

But it’s the team, who provide residential, dementia, nursing, palliative and respite care, that make it feel like home. Respite care breaks can be booked in advance, which gives carers looking after loved ones at home the chance to take a well-deserved break, with the peace of mind of knowing their loved one is in safe hands.

The staff are devoted to enriching the lives of their residents, spending time getting to know their life histories and what they love to do, so they can make Yarnton their home.

A thriving home full of activity

The residents enjoy so many fantastic activities, from baking and listening to live music, to animal visits and pampering sessions. There is also a hairdressing salon for regular appointments with the home’s mobile hairdresser.

The gardens are a beautiful space to relax with loved ones, who are welcome to visit at any time. This summer residents have loved taking part in the home’s ‘Grow Your Own Way’ project, where the residents choose what to plant, nurturing their own produce, which is then used by the chef in the kitchen. They have grown everything from carrots and spring onions, to lettuce and parsley, giving them such a sense of achievement.

There are also raised beds and wheelchair friendly pathways, so residents in wheelchairs can enjoy gardening too.

The community are embraced into life in the home, with regular entertainers, children from the local schools and community volunteers popping in to spend time with the residents, which they love.

Residents leading the way

The team champion the residents to have a very active role to play in how the home is run, with resident ambassadors who provide feedback on everything from activities to the menu, as well as running residents’ meetings. This helps them to use those life-long skills, giving them a sense of purpose and belonging.

The home-cooked food is delicious, from roast dinners with all the trimmings, to fish and chip Friday and home-baking with afternoon tea.

The home has a private Facebook page, so families and friends can see what the residents are enjoying doing, even if they can’t be there in person.

Hear from the people who matter most

"The care home is immaculately clean; the care staff are hugely attentive and so lovely; the management staff are very much involved with the residents, visible, transparent and go the extra mile. The chef meets the residents to ensure they like the food he is cooking for them, including fresh cakes each afternoon. The grounds are beautifully maintained and my mother settled in very quickly, despite not wanting initially to leave her home. There is a varied entertainment programme and she loves the hairdresser on site. I can only praise Yarnton most highly across the board. review – daughter of resident

And don’t forget – you can pre-book respite care breaks too

Very thankful to all staff at Yarnton Residential and Nursing Home, who cared for my husband for a week's respite to give me a much-needed break. When we went to view the home, we were met with smiles and had all our questions answered patiently. The food was good, the staff were caring.” review – wife of respite resident

When artist Julia Sorrell contacted me to see if I thought our readers might be interested in the story of how she and husband, Ian, renovated their property in Shipton-under-Wychwood, I jumped at the chance to learn more. Their aim was to use as many recycled materials as possible, and they will be opening their home to visitors during Oxfordshire Artweeks in May.
