Introducing the New Holly Oak Dementia Care Home

Posted on Posted in Dementia, News

The Hollies is set to open the all new Holly Oak Dementia Care Home in January 2021, providing state of the art care in comfortable and luxurious surroundings.  The Hollies will now comprise the well-established Hollies Nursing Care Home, Holly Oak Dementia Care Home, luxury apartments and care suites.


A win win for the area of Dursley and South Cotswolds!


The 45-bedroom Holly Oak will contribute a significant investment in job creation for the area and provide the community with a service that is second to none in Gloucestershire.


Set in a park overlooking Dursley, the Hollies provides nursing, dementia, residential and palliative care over a range of accommodation types including en-suite rooms and luxurious apartments. The Hollies has gone from strength to strength with outstanding reviews and accreditation with the Gold Standards Framework Award (Commended).


The Hollies was, and continues to be, well-prepared for the COVID-19 pandemic. It was one of the first care homes to its close doors to outsiders and has maintained strict and evolving hygiene standards and controls. Additionally, it has been able to offer assisted-living accommodation with options of greater space such as terrace rooms, garden suites and apartments. Within the grounds, there is an abundance of outdoor patios and comfortable seating areas for residents, and when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, their guests. The care home’s coronavirus-free status is commendable and attributable to exceptional team effort and investment in high quality personal protective equipment and other solutions and resources.



What sets Holly Oak apart?


With the increased demand for specialist dementia care, and the enviable space surrounding the existing home on the park, Holly Oak is poised to be a great success.


Leading the way, Holly Oak affords important details that will enhance residents’ everyday enjoyment. Imagine a charming community with a tearoom, private bar, beauty salon, small dining rooms and beautiful furnishings that remind you of home!


Care and service are founded on the internationally recognised ‘household model’ of care, which helps those living with dementia experience more positive outcomes in daily life. There is a dedicated nursing and care team in place with extensive training on this method.


It is no surprise that service standards and amenities will be impeccable, as the new development is the work of experienced and highly regarded care home owner, Jonathan Hawkins, and his very skilled and loyal team.


Jonathan commented, “We are proud to be such an integral part of the community here in Gloucestershire. We provide dedicated care and an array of amenities to ensure our residents have the best possible day, every day. Having achieved this we are now one of the biggest employers in the area.”
