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.

Nutrition & Hydration Trolley

Residents were treated with our Nutrition and Hydration trolley which was full of cakes, fruits, yoghurts, biscuits, and chocolates, as well as hot and cold drinks. The milkshakes always seem to be popular with our Residents.

To celebrate Carers day, Shirley, our Senior Carer loaded trolleys with all things savoury. The cheese scones and cheese straws made by our Chef; Nathan were amazing. Our Deputy Manager, Sandra bought in coffee, drinks, and other cold snacks. This was a lovely surprise and appreciated by everyone.

Conservatory Visits

We now have our conservatory ready to use for visitors. We have a dividing wall built in with a plastic screen.

You can make an appointment and you will be required to wear PPE. We can provide a face shield if you do not have a face mask. Visits will be for 20 minutes to allow everyone an opportunity. Our Housekeeping team will be deep cleaning the conservatory after each visit.

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.
