Hello, I am Judith, and I am a Volunteer here at the Oxford Beaumont Care Community. 
I am much enjoying being a volunteer at the Oxford Beaumont a couple of times a week, both chatting to the Residents and running a very elementary French class. I have lived on Boars Hill for many years now, with my late husband, who spent his last few months being very well looked after here, at the Oxford Beaumont. Before that we had lived a very peripatetic life all over the world and it is a great pleasure to be able to meet the interesting staff and residents at the Oxford Beaumont.
