Activities at Red Oaks

We believe in making a difference to the lives of people living here with us and ensure that we provide a lifestyle full of choice and stimulation that is centred around each resident here at Red Oaks. This includes a whole host of varied activities, together with regular trips out around the region, taking full advantage of the home’s minibus. Our aim is to enable each person we support to continue to do the things they enjoy for as long as they possibly can.

Don't Dine Alone

Our ‘Don’t Dine Alone’ initiative was launched as a way to reach out to isolated or vulnerable members of the local community. We recently opened our doors to 24 members of the Bramber & Beeding Over 60s Club for a Christmas lunch.

Christmas Jumper Day

All residents and staff at Red Oaks were encouraged to buy, borrow or decorate their own special Christmas jumpers and donate £1 to Save the Children.

The day ended with a lovely performance from St Peter's School Choir, who were dressed in their own party clothes and Christmas jumpers.

Guy Fawkes Night

Residents at Red Oaks decided to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night slightly differently this year. Each floor decided to make their own Guy, so we ended up with a mum, dad and a child Guy. None were burned on a bonfire, but all the residents had a lot of fun making them.

Alzheimer's Coffee Morning

Red Oaks' coffee morning was a big success – we managed to raise £180 and, most importantly, everyone had a lot of fun doing it!

The Alzheimer's Society provides financial aid, specialist healthcare services, and all different kinds of support to those living with Alzheimer’s. The purpose of the coffee morning is to sit down with your friends and family and catch up with a nice cuppa for a good cause. The money raised will help Alzheimer’s Society make sure no one has to face the condition alone.

Pony Visit

Red Oaks has always welcomed pets into the home, but this was the first time that we've had a pony here. Dooley is a 2 year old Shetland pony, who stopped by recently, much to the delight of residents.

Rabbits at Red Oaks

No one can not appreciate having a cute rabbit sitting on their laps. We had 12 rabbits come to see residents at Red Oaks, and they were all passed around and everyone made a huge fuss of them. We loved it!
