One of a kind home care - Unique as you are


1 Oak Care is a home care company with a difference. Founded in 2017, by Angel Doyle and Tel Clark they are passionate about offering a first class service to their clients and becoming a world-class employer for the staff that are trusted with providing care, compassion and respect for the people who need them.

1 Oak Care recognises that their clients have individual needs and the one size fits all approach is rarely the best way to care.

Their ethos is rooted in beating rural isolation, so prevalent in rural Suffolk, so their services go beyond personal care 

You might know someone who needs assistance getting ready for the day, or perhaps help at bedtime. Or perhaps it's loneliness that's the issue and you know someone who needs company during the day, or help with a bit of light housework. 1 Oak Care offer a free care assessment to establish what your needs are or what you might want for a better quality of life. Just get in touch for an informal and friendly visit from one of the team


Personal Care

Whether you need help around the house, getting in and out of bed, preparing meals or general mobility, 1 Oak Carers are there to help you, whether it’s for 30 minutes or 24 hours a day.

Respite Care

1 Oak understands the importance of taking a rest and being able to recharge. This is especially true if you’re a carer for a family member or friend. Your care responsibilities and needs are seamlessly taken over, so you can have peace of mind, whether you need a break for a couple of hours of a few days.

Hospital Discharge

Did you know every hospital has their own policy for discharging patients? Every hospital stay is different and every patient recovery is unique to them. 1 Oak work with the hospital team to ensure life at home can resume as soon as possible.

Day Trips

Who doesn’t love a day trip? They are important to everyone and should never be a day of concern. Perhaps you know someone that needs support shopping, or assistance to a family event, like a christening or wedding, 1 Oak can be there for the whole trip. They can arrange the transport, ensure a carer will be there and make sure the trip is a success.

Whether it’s a squeaky door, a spot of light gardening or fixing a broken shelf or fence, the team can help.
