About John Masefield House

John Masefield House in Oxford is a specialist nursing home supporting adults with physical disability and/or long-term neurological conditions, including cerebral palsy, epilepsy, brain injury, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, speech impairment, spina bifida, hydrocephalus or stroke.

Many of our residents require assistance with meals, drinks, and general nutrition. Some residents have communication challenges or cannot communicate verbally. Our dedicated team gets to know everyone well, quickly learning how they communicate so that their needs can be responded to with respect and dignity.

Our environment

The home is fully wheelchair accessible, and is all on the ground floor, making access very easy. Our garden and grounds are beautiful and sit within 4 acres going down to the River Thames, and provide opportunities for residents to enjoy the fresh air, nature and moments of peace.

We nurture a strong sense of family spirit here, caring for our residents and each other.


Our chef cooks homely, delicious food. We take time to learn from our residents exactly what they like to eat and how they would like it prepared.


Our wonderful team work together to provide specialist care, meaningful engagement and therapeutic  activities.

Our registered nurses are trained to deliver highly specialised and complex nursing care. We have experience with tracheostomies, PEG care, CPAP, wound management and end of life care.

We support residents to build their skills, inspiring confidence and enabling everyone to live their best possible lives. We help with personal care, physiotherapy, health and wellbeing programmes, rehabilitation, community engagement, enablement, volunteering and activities, and respite services.

Activities and Care

We spend the time to get to know each resident as a person, their wishes, aspirations, passions and interests.

We create a personalised support plan for each resident. Our activities team will plan 1:1 and group activities in the home and the community to enable everyone in our care to access as many meaningful opportunities as possible.

This may include a visit to a local garden centre, bowling, a trip to any beautiful surrounding towns or a trip to the local pub for lunch.

We love to meet with our residents’ families and friends to update them on activities in the home, progress on improvements and to receive their feedback. Often, we enjoy having a cup of tea and talking about daily events.
