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.

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!

Garden Party

Every year, Red Oaks hosts a garden party for residents, relatives, volunteers and friends, as a way of saying thank you to everyone for their help and support throughout the year. There was lots of champagne and strawberries for everyone, with entertainment from the Rocky Road Duo.

A Night to Remember

Staff at Red Oaks have taken part in a sponsored fun 'Night to Remember Walk' to raise money for St Barnabas charity,based in Worthing, West Sussex.

By joining together for a midnight walk, we faced the dark united and showed our support to hundreds of local people and families that face life-limiting illnesses. Residents, their relatives and staff were all very supportive and were there to cheer on the participants as they began the fundraising challenge. The Red Oaks team included Linda Ryan, Marilyn Knight, Ashley Hobbs, Becky Urquhart Hobbs, Frances Urquhart, Becky Davis and Niamh Ryan.

Red Oaks is hoping to raise in excess of £800 by completing the challenge, which will be donated to the St Barnabas.
