‘Experience My World’ at Wytham House

Gain an insight into dementia.

At Wytham House in Farmoor, Oxfordshire, we provide specialist and personalised dementia care for elderly people in a safe and friendly home. We are part of Caring Homes which has developed a unique dementia training programme, ‘My World’ comprising of three levels, accredited by City & Guilds and recognised in the first Princess Royal Training Awards.

The programme levels are:

  • Bronze Leve: Living in My World
  • Silver Level: Understanding my World
  • Gold Level: Supporting my World

The entire team at Wytham House, from care, reception, chefs to housekeeping receives our ‘Living in My World’ training, giving them an understanding of the condition and how to make a positive impact on the people in our care.

We believe everyone should have an awareness of dementia to recognise what life is like for those living with the condition and understand how loved ones can be affected and supported.

Now we are giving members of the public the opportunity to gain this knowledge too.

On Thursday 1st December, Wytham House is holding a FREE dementia awareness event, ‘Experience My World’ at our home. Michele Saunders, Dementia Training Lead for Caring Homes will be discussing dementia and its effects, as well as holding a practical and interactive experience.

Join Michele and our team on:

Date: Thursday 1st December
From: 10.00am – 12.30pm – Buffet Lunch provided
Location: Oaken Holt Estate, Eynsham Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX2 9NL

‘Experience My World’ will be run as a small group to provide you with a more personal experience. The session will cover a range of topics, such as what it might be like to live with dementia as well as offering some practical advice on caring for your loved one. You will also get the chance to speak with others experiencing the same challenges.
