Abbey Hey Care Home

Care Home in Oldham, Lancashire

Abbey Hey in Oldham near Manchester, is a purpose-built 36-bed residential care home specialising in dementia-related care. We also provide short term respite care to help families and loved ones take a break from their caring roles.

We adopt a compassionate, caring approach, placing each of our residents at the heart of everything we do. We are underpinned by respect and trust, so all our residents feel settled and cared for during their stay. Independence is encouraged so that all residents maintain a sense of purpose and their dignity isn’t compromised.

Our talented chef curates a specialist menu that covers different dietary requirements, and all meals are prepared in-house so they are nutritiously balanced.
