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.

Games in the afternoons

Our Residents have enjoyed playing games in the afternoons which has bought a smile to their faces.

We are following the Government guidelines and keeping everyone safe as possible by social distancing and wearing PPE.

We will keep relatives and friends updated with changes.

Australia Day


Yesterday we thought we would hop across the pond and have a day inspired by all things Oz!

The home was lovingly decorated by our Activities Coordinator, with bunting, signage to well-known Australian Landmarks and a couple of cheeky Roo’s!

Residents were amused to see Oakwood staff rushing around wearing Australian Bush Hats (complete with corks) and began their day testing their knowledge on the Country with a themed quiz. 

Afternoon Singalong 

With the weather outside delightful, the thought of staying in was frightful. We had a few guests to show, Graham Johns and Sean Moyses as Banjo….(man).

We took appropriate precautions to ensure Residents remained out of the sun and well hydrated.

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.
