Abbeyfield Oxenford House, OxfordAt Oxenford House we have a very varied activity programme including musical movement classes, quizzes, film afternoons, reminiscence & poetry sessions, aromatherapy sessions, bingo, scrabble club, knit & natter, gardening and in house theatre shows.  Outings to village events and day trips to local places of interest are also organised.

We also have our own dedicated in house Physiotherapist who visits the house twice a week.

Throughout the year we celebrate monthly ‘special’ events including Chinese New Year, St George’s day, Halloween and Christmas.

We hold an annual BBQ and Christmas party for the Residents to enjoy with their families and friends. This is a great way for Residents to be able to socialise with Staff and their families.

Trish is our Activity Leader and leads the activity programme; however we actively encourage all staff to involve themselves in all daily activities of the house.
