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.

We are now rated 'Outstanding'

Staff and residents at Red Oaks are celebrating our recent CQC inspection rating, where we scored an overall ‘Outstanding’ after being reviewed for a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led service.

Currently only 2.4% of England’s care homes, domiciliary care agencies and hospitals have an overall ‘Outstanding’ rating, so Red Oaks has been ranked among the best in the country for the quality of the services it provides.

The CQC inspected the home on 16th and 18th January (the report was released on 6th April) and rated the home as ‘Outstanding' in two key assessment areas (‘Caring’ & ‘Responsive’) and ‘Good’ in three (‘Safe’, ‘Effective’ & ‘Well-led’).

Well done to everyone who made this possible!

Spring Has Arrived

Now that we have the slightly better weather, we have began gardening activities at Red Oaks. We have specially adapted seeding and potting areas so that all residents – even the less mobile ones – are able to take part and enjoy the activity.

Easter Cake Competition

Every Easter, Barchester runs an Easter Cake Competition that homes can participate in. Our 2018 entry was created by Glenda Williams, one of our Kitchen Assistants, who is very talented at making creative cakes.

Nutrition & Hydration Week

Red Oaks has devised an exciting, challenging and fun week of activities, meetings and competitions. Every day at Red Oaks, we have had a special event with a nutrition and hydration theme.

Monday started the week off with a continental breakfast, Tuesday was 'Wacky Snacky' day with an enticing range of finger food in the morning; on Wednesday, residents made a range of different sandwiches for our tea party, where other residents enjoyed the fruits of their labour; Thursday was 'Thirsty Thursday', with a range of unusual drinks, and Friday was 'Fruity Friday', with a selection of fruits from around the world. The weekend continued the theme with 'Smoothie Saturday' and 'Sundae Sunday'.

Christmas Day

Christmas Day is always fantastic at Red Oaks, with up to a hundred relatives visiting. We start the morning with Buck's Fizz and canapés and then, just before lunch, everyone gets their presents from Father Christmas.

Christmas Party

The annual Christmas Party was a great success, with entertainment from Helen Bartlet – an old favourite – for our evening events. There was wine and cheese flowing and everyone was up on their feet dancing.
