OVERVIEW

Oaksey House

This £2.7m pioneering facility for the holistic treatment of injured and retired jockeys is the first of its kind in the UK, and was designed in partnership with the Injured Jockeys Fund (IJF) – a registered UK charity.

Oaksey House is divided into two primary functions. The first is a residential village for retired jockeys and IJF beneficiaries. In total there are twelve residential units, including three that are double units and one with respite care facilities for nursing staff. The design for these units focuses on providing a high quality, domestic living environment centred round the inhabitants. Home care technologies have been integrated to facilitate independent living.

The second aspect of Oaksey House provides rehabilitation for injured jockeys, including clinical and complimentary treatments. Three flexible paramedic and physiotherapy treatment rooms have been provided, with a cutting edge rehabilitation gym designed specifically with the needs of the jockeys in mind. In addition, there is a recreational gym with further specialised equipment, including two racehorse simulators, a sauna able to accommodate eight people and a wheelchair, a large flexible community room, and a smaller meeting room.
