Daily life

Keeping things personal

At Wytham House

The wonderful surroundings at Wytham House are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

Keep doing what you love

At Wytham House, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy – from the craft room to the hair salon, our packed schedule of events and activities, to picnics in the grounds. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a pint in the local pub. We have strong connections with the Farmoor community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

Are you in need of a break this winter?

Book a respite stay for peace of mind

Caring for a loved one can be consuming, leaving little time for the demands of winter planning and hosting. If you need to take some time away from your everyday caring role at any point in the run up to, or during the winter period, we’re welcoming new residents safely, with our short stay, respite breaks.

During this unprecedented time, many residents have chosen us for peace of mind so they feel safe in the knowledge that care and support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should they need it, as well as staying connected. Whether you're looking for permanent care or a respite stay, ask us about our latest availability and the extra things we are doing to keep our residents, families and teams safe.

Meet the Manager

Amanda Cordery

I began my care career working in home care and supported living roles, supporting adults with disabilities and the elderly. I have always been very passionate about elderly care so to further developed myself by studying Adult Nursing at Oxford Brookes University. Following my studies, I was a Ward Nurse at Witney Community Hospital, a District Nurse, and a Tissue Viability Link Nurse. During this time, I gained my mentorship qualification and taught wound care and pressure prevention within the local community. I continued to develop my career as a Deputy Manager in a Dementia Care Home. Then, in 2018 I joined Caring Homes as the Deputy Manager and Clinical Lead of Wytham House, before progressing to the role of Care Home Manager.

At Wytham House the residents we care for each have a personal history with professions and hobbies. They have lived independently as highly respected individuals and it’s important that when they make Wytham House their home we continue to treat them with the dignity, respect, compassion and care they deserve.

There are different spaces on each floor giving residents plenty of choice and more importantly different places to spend their day which increases the feeling of individuality and independence.

Join friends and families in the lounge to enjoy the morning sunshine or you may prefer the evening sunset. The changes in daylight throughout the day help to signal the passing of time to maintain a normal sleeping pattern.

Dementia friendly crockery can be easier to see against a table cloth and the lip on one side gives greater depth to improve the dining experience.

Activity rooms, Hair Salon, Cinema and Bistro are designed with residents and their visitors in mind.

Open shelving can help a person living with dementia to find the right clothes and can minimise confusion.
Electronic care plans can be accessed by family to keep them up to date. A silent nurse call system can be less distressing and does not disturb other residents.

Doors to en-suite wet rooms are fitted with two-way hinges, allowing them to be opened inwards and outwards, so if a resident should fall inside the bathroom, the door can be opened outwards to allow help quickly and safely
