Life at Oxford Beaumont Care Community
Moments Full of Emotion
The Oxfordshire Fire Brigade visited the home on 30th April to show their support for all essential workers. These were moments full of emotions!
Keeping in Touch
Residents are still keeping in touch with family and friends, and even taking part in activities with them. One resident here at Oxford Beaumont was sent some flowers by her sister, and we then organised a Skype video call so they could chat while she was arranging them.
We are able to arrange appointments for Skype calls everyday, so please contact us to organise one if you would like to speak to family or friends who live at Oxford Beaumont.
Fancy Dress Day
To celebrate happiness and to have a day of positivity, staff at Oxford Beaumont dressed up in fancy dress. It certainly brought smiles to everyone’s faces and brought back memories of dancing in circle skirts with frilly petticoats, watching Roy Rogers on the TV, and of the Village People singing YMCA! We even persuaded Graham to wear the Elvis wig outside when he went out to see some of the flowers in the garden.
Weekly Scrabble Club
Our weekly Scrabble Club is always a hit with residents coming together to socialize, solve logical problem in each turn of play, develop concentration, and have an enjoyable time.
We have several residents who take pleasure in playing the game and find it a relaxing past time as well as making new friends along the way.
If you would like to come along and join in the fun please contact email@example.com for more information.

Burns Evening Celebrations
A fabulous evening was had by all when we arranged an event to celebrate the life and poetry of Robert Burns. We were very privileged to have our guest Harry Gow playing the traditional bagpipes to our residents and guests in his Scottish attire. Harry explained about the tradition and the meaning behind the annual event.
Chef prepared a Scottish supper including haggis, neeps and tatties. The Selkirk Grace was said by our Independent living Ambassador as well as the toasting of the haggis. Drams of whiskey were of course part of the refreshments and some dancing took place too. The event was especially memorable to one of our Scottish residents and her family who attended the event.
We would like to thank everyone who joined us and enjoyed another successful event.
