Vale House Oxford

Vale House is dedicated to supporting people with severe dementia until the end of their life, looking after a vulnerable group of people through its specialist care home on the outskirts of Oxford

Founded 1990

  • Mission statement

    At Vale House, we are pioneering the way forward in care for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of Dementia offering care, comfort, dignity and respect.
    People with severe dementia are often excluded from the world outside their home for many reasons. Their degenerative mental status makes them extremely vulnerable and dependent; they need specialist care 24 hours a day. Vale House excels in supporting such people, giving residents opportunities and activities they cannot have at home.
    The ethos of the home is to see in each of our residents the person that they are now, and were in their lives before, rather than the problems they present. We respect their adult status and their individual needs; we stress the principles of privacy and dignity, and recognise people’s right of choice as far as their capacity permits.
    The needs of the residents vary greatly, for each person the impact of their illness is different, and will progress through different stages. One person may refuse to be helped in any way, believing herself to be fully competent and independent. Another person may be restless, irritable, too bewildered to settle to anything. Yet another person may be frail, frightened, no longer able to walk, dependent on others to support the simplest functions of her daily life. The aim of Vale House is to understand and embrace this variety, and to match our care to the unique needs of each of our residents, from the day they come to us to the day they die.
