Raeburn Care


Our Care Offering

Raeburn is situated adjacent to the ‘green belt’ in Cambridge, next to open paddocks with horses and rural views. All resthome and hospital rooms have ranch sliders, some opening onto decking, others onto a garden or a patio area.


We provide a complete range of care, with resthome, secure dementia and hospital rooms, all on the one site.


Our gardens are well maintained and we have recently refurbished most of the facility, bringing it up to the ‘homely hotel’ standard that is unique to Oceania. All our meals are cooked onsite and our chef is always willing to accommodate any special needs a resident may require.


Activities Programme

Our activities coordinator provides residents with a wide range of activities, all chosen with the needs of current residents in mind. When possible, activities are also relevant to what’s happening in the world and our locality.


Our facility is very active in the community with frequent van outings, regular Avantidrome attendees for trike riding, café and town visits and guests, Countryside Explorers, Beach hopping and concert groupies. We have several pets including friendly chickens and rabbits, and the managers dog is a daily guest. The neighbouring paddocks are home to horses too. 


Regular exercises, tai chi, concerts, visits from pet groups and line dancers are all part of our activities. One activity unique to Raeburn is our ‘Knitters and Knatters’ group. Our residents knit peggy squares for the Cambridge Knitters and Knatters, who join them together and send the finished blankets to orphanages in the Ukraine. Our residents derive a lot of pleasure seeing that they can still make a difference to the lives of under-privileged children overseas.
