Oakhill Mansions

Oakhill Mansions is a very special building. Originally a Methodist college built in the 1950s in the Art Deco style, it has tall sash windows, lending a light and airy feel to the appropriately-named Mansions. Its elevated location on Henbury Hill provides beautiful panoramic views of Bristol. It is close to the centre of Bristol, in a secluded and leafy part of Westbury-on-Trym, a village to the north of the city.

Renovated and restructured to almost purpose-built standards, it provides three self-contained wings which each provide 24-hour focused care for specific needs. This level of care is unique in the Bristol area.

Despite being secluded, busy everyday life is just around the corner. Local amenities include shops, bus stops and GP services at the local Primary Care Centre. Local hospitals (Southmead and Bristol Royal Infirmary) are within four miles, while Temple Meads railway station and Bristol’s central bus station are within four to five miles. For car drivers, the M5 motorway is three miles away.

Our home combines a tried-and-tested model of care for people with complex dementia and/or mental disorders, with a new and unique healthcare, therapy and hospitality service.

At Oakhill Mansions, as at all Cedar Care Homes, you’ll be part of a happy and stimulating household, where our standard of care improves the quality of life for everyone – adding life to years.

Who we care for

We’ve created Oakhill Mansions for people who require mid to long term nursing care:

  • for those who require support in daily living and socialising due to behaviour difficulties arising from complex dementia and/or mental disorders;
  • for people with dementia who also need high level of management and support for physical and medical needs.

Types of Care

Our home operates as three separate wings and each consists of self-contained suites with their own lounge and dining room, so that care and support can be focused to meet the varying types and levels of need of people:

Queens wood Wing – ground floor, 19 bedrooms

Provides psychological and nursing care for people who have complex dementia and/or mental disorders that result in behavioural issues.

Kingsley Wing – first floor, 31 bedrooms

Provides psychological and nursing care for people who have complex dementia and/or mental disorders that result in behavioural issues.

Princeton Wing – top floor, 26 bedrooms

Provides nursing care for people with or without dementia who also require management of physical difficulties. This may include people from the other wings who have become less physically able. Palliative and end of life care is also available in this wing.
