The latest goings-on at Oakwood House

Find out all about what we’ve been up to both here at Oakwood House and out and about.

Kind Gifts from Bowthorpe Scouts 

Our Residents got a lovely surprise as Bowthorpe Scouts dropped off a box filled with handmade cards and painted stones.

Residents enjoyed us reading all the kind words and messages written to them, it really did put a smile on their faces.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Bowthorpe Scouts.

Games in the Garden

As the sun has been shining, we got our Residents out in the garden and played ball games, darts and skittles. This was a big hit with Residents and they are already looking forward to being outside again. ????

We took a picture of our naughty squirrel pinching all the nuts from our bird feeders.

Crazy Hair Day

Staff decided to wear wigs to work for our Crazy Hair Day. Residents were smiling and laughing when they saw staff in their wigs.

Our Residents have also been busy decorating cupcakes and these were enjoyed by all. As you can see the results were amazing!

We have also been decorating a table in the lounge and made it into a beach theme and it is looking great. Residents have been colouring in paper ice-cream cones and drawing pictures of the seaside.

Visiting Update

We now have a gate with a lock fitted. The gate will be closed between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm to allow our Residents to use the garden. We welcome visiting to wave to your loved ones through the window outside of these hours. Thank you for your co-operation.


Our Residents made the most of the lovely bank holiday sunshine, as a small group sat outside in the garden and had their lunch together.
