Elvis has entered the building at Wytham House

Wytham House residents recently welcomed all round musical entertainer and performer Paul Dummas and one of his little buddies Elvis to our care home in Farmoor, Oxfordshire.

Our residents and team were all eagerly awaiting his arrival and he truly did not disappoint. Not only did he keep us all amused with his show full of variety, comedy and impressions but he thoroughly entertained us with his fantastic ventriloquist show which was hilarious.

With his many jokes up his sleeve and an array of puppets, our residents laughed, sang and clapped their way throughout the afternoon show. From our residents reactions, what brought the most joy was his performance with his puppet, Elvis, who wowed us all with his amazing songs, dance moves and left us in the words of the King, ‘all shook up, mm mm mm mm, yay, yay, yay’. Who knew that an Elvis puppet could bring so much fun and jollity to our home?

At Wytham House, we believe an active life is a happier and more fulfilling life and activities are an important part of life at our home. A key member of our team is our Activities Coordinator, Liza who works with each resident to ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate in activities that have real meaning for them and bring pleasure to their lives, whether it is a hobby or interest they have built up over a lifetime or a brand new experience.

Our clinical team also work with our Activities Coordinators to ensure our activities contribute to our residents’ physical and mental wellbeing, although simple enjoyment is of course the number one priority.

We are always looking for new ways to bring fun and laughter to our home and with the great comments received and the smiling faces all round, we definitely achieved this with Paul’s visit.

All our residents clearly enjoyed the day and we look forward to our next event. We’ve got lots planned for March including a seated dance class for all abilities, lots of arts and crafts sessions, a new gardening club now that the weather is getting better and our own choir. Watch this space…
