Our Residents

The ladies and gentleman that choose Cumnor Hill House to be their home enjoy life to the full. They have fun and lots of it knowing they are in a safe caring environment with a professional team who know them well.

Everyone loves the food at our home, from a fully cooked breakfast, three-course lunch, afternoon tea, with the best homemade cakes and our evening super. Themed evenings and events are among our resident’s favourites led by our Events Team and Bistro Managers.

Our ladies and gentleman enjoy the social side of life and are able to share this with family and friends, confidence is restored and loneliness is a thing of the past. 

The staff are all so kind and helpful, and they have time to talk to you and that’s important. The food is always lovely, and its nicely served”

It’s a joy and a privilege to work at Cumnor. Every day is different, the satisfaction from spending time with the residents, making their day-to-day wishes come true and working with a fun-loving and committed team makes my job, not feel like a job! I love it here.”

We are delighted to welcome you to Cumnor Hill House, where we offer residents the chance to experience luxury living and exceptional care. We provide residential, nursing, dementia, respite and daycare in a stimulating, beautiful environment just outside the City of Oxford.

We are delighted to announce that we have recently been given an Outstanding rating by CQC, which is recognition for the hard work displayed by all our staff these past 18 months.

There are many things which set Cumnor Hill House apart from other care homes which you can find out more about throughout this website and our brochure. There are two which I believe stand out and help to shape our ethos:

Firstly, we are very selective when recruiting our staff and in return for them being the best at what they do, we pay everyone who works with us above the Living Wage. We believe this is a first in the local market and ensures a happy environment within the home while recognising the value of the care profession.

Secondly, we offer one clear, all-inclusive weekly price to our residents. This reduces worry and helps people relax as well as being able to plan ahead.

We are proud of what we have achieved at Cumnor Hill House and we invite everyone who is interested in the home to visit us in person. Please contact me to arrange a convenient time – I very much look forward to meeting you soon.
