Eggstra Early Easter Fun at Wytham House

Easter arrived early this year at Wytham House care home in Farmoor.

Liza, our Activity Coordinator arranged for Amate Animalia, a rescue animal sanctuary in Oxford to come and visit us with a two week old lamb.

Emmy, the volunteer explained that the lamb had been orphaned during birth and they had named her Lamby, much to the amusement of our residents.

They also bought other animals with them; a skunk, a lizard, snakes, chameleon, hedgehogs, but the true star of the show was Lamby.

Much to their delight, our residents were able to be very hands on with Lamby, feeding her and also petting all of the other animals too. It was great to be able to get up close to these wonderful animals, learn about them as well as help support this charities work.

Not to be left out, our team also got the chance to have a cuddle too. Who could not resist the very cute Lamby!

At Wytham House we offer residential and nursing dementia care provided by outstanding highly-skilled professionals. The wellbeing of our residents is a top priority for all of our team here from reception, carers, and activities to our catering team and we are all committed to making sure that their time spent with us is happy and rewarding, as it is for us too.
