Celebration of all our mothers at Wytham House

Mothers’ Day was celebrated by our residents at Wytham House, Farmoor with a special lunch and welcoming in their friends and family to spend the day with them.

At Wytham House the new chef Steve Shore was looking forward to dishing up a special three course lunch to the residents including salmon terrine to start, roast rib of beef with all the trimmings and homemade chocolate brownies.

“Just because people are living with a degree of dementia does not mean they can’t enjoy good food. Food here is very much restaurant standard,” said Steve.

“We work hard to make sure our food looks great as well as tasting good as enjoying a meal is as much about the presentation as the flavour.”

Steve, who did his apprenticeship with Trusthouse Forte and has worked for hotels and restaurants including The Waldorf in London, is also enjoying preparing textured modified food for those residents who have dysphagia.

He said: “Pureed foods which are moulded back into shape are definitely the way forward for residents who have difficulty swallowing, again it is about how the food looks, as well as how it tastes.”

Steve, whose own mother is living with dementia, started working for Caring Homes in March and is enjoying being part of the Wytham House family as well as being able to spend more time with his own wife and family who live locally.

Wytham House is a Caring Homes Group care home, part of the Oaken Holt Estate off Eynsham Road, providing specialist dementia care for up to 40 people.
