Unityone Ltd took over Elizabeth Lawrence Rest Home (as it was known then) in July 2004. When the home was taken over by current providers the registration was for elderly residential care. In 2005 Elizabeth Lawrence was rebranded to reflect the new ownership as Oakwood Rest Home. At the same time the home was also registered to provide dementia residential care. This required some adjustments to the building as well as further investment in specialist advanced Dementia training for all staff. Oakwood is now a high quality dementia home that provides a homely, family environment for residents to enjoy.
