Welcome to The Close, a modern and luxurious care home offering residential, nursing care and a specialist care and ABI.

'The great atmosphere at The Close is reflected in its surroundings which are well kept, beautiful and serene. This, coupled with the approachability and friendliness of the management, makes it a truly wonderful place to be.'

Selina Morris, Head Housekeeper

The Close offers long-term care, short-stay convalescent, respite care, day care and specialist care in a beautiful location close to the market town of Abingdon and within close proximity of the city of Oxford. It is ideally set in four acres of beautiful landscaped gardens that roll down to the banks of the river Thames.

We believe this is your home as much as it is ours. We pride ourselves in treating every resident individually and matching the care they require to their specific needs - each resident's Care Plan is designed to build on your strengths and we constantly seek to improve on quality of life.

Please feel free to come and visit us, we would be delighted to show you around.
