Our programmes are tailored and developed specifically to cater for our residents' individual needs. Oak Vale Gardens is a purpose-built and welcoming centre, with all referrals coming via the Cheshire and Merseyside Rehabilitation Network.

Specialist rehabilitation care

Oak Vale Gardens is an 18-bedded specialist rehabilitation care home with nursing, for males and females aged 18 years and over.

We have two units:

  • Stephenson Unit
  • Unwin Unit

The units are designed with the needs of the individual in mind. The people we support at Oak Vale Gardens may require extended rehabilitation (approximately 12-18 months) to meet their physical, cognitive, behavioural and emotional needs, to support a planned return to community living.
