The Close Care Home

the close

The Close Care Home offers long term care, short – stay convalescent, respite care and specialist care. In a beautiful location, close to the market towns of Abingdon and Wallingford, and also within close proximity of the city of Oxford making it the perfect location for a relaxing and sophisticated stay.

Our state of the art care home sits in four acres of landscaped gardens rolling down to the banks of the Thames.  The luxurious environment supports the highest standards of care delivery undertaken by our team of well trained and passionate staff.  Unrivalled locally as a centre of excellence.

We want our residents to believe that this is their home as much as it is ours, and we pride ourselves in treating every resident individually. We match the care they receive to their specific needs. Each resident’s Care Plan is designed to build upon their strengths and to improve quality of life, something we are constantly trying to achieve.

 A note from Victoria Forsythe or Senior Operations Manager


I would like to take this opportunity to wish a very merry Christmas and a happy new year to all our residents, friends, family and staff. It’s been a hard year of work at the Close with many changes and improvements to the home. We have had an extensive refurbishment throughout the home with stunning wood flooring, new tables and bedroom furniture was just the tip of the iceberg. Each department has made striving changes such as pictorial menus boards now in each wing and in compliance with new food regulations we have instigated a food allergy’s section to our menus. The Life skills support team are ringing the changes with day trips, activities and event evenings to keep everyone talking. I would like to thank all of our staff, residents, family members and vendors for all their support, hard work and dedication in the past year and moving forward wish you all a happy and prosperous new year.
