Oaken Holt’s Choral Society

At Oaken Holt care home in Farmoor, we decided it was time to create a choir and have our very own Choral Society here at our home after so many residents and team members could often be heard singing.

The choir meets up once or twice a week and sing songs of yesteryear. Songs such as ‘Sound of Music’ and ‘Magic Moments’ are a few of their favourites. The sessions are enjoyed by many and it gives everyone a chance to hear songs that they may have forgotten or not heard in a while.

Our residents have said how many of the songs bring back wonderful memories and after the sessions  we often share our stories and recollections. It is an excellent opportunity as well for our team members to interact with the residents and a good time is had by all.

Our residents really look forward to our weekly Choral Society sessions and are always thinking of and suggesting different songs to sing along to. New members are always welcome to join in too.

Oaken Holt is set in a magnificent country estate located in the peaceful village of Farmoor offering the perfect blend of tranquillity and accessibility with Oaken Holt providing residential and nursing care of the very highest standard for up to 55 elderly residents. Wytham House, our specialist dementia home is also located within the grounds of Oaken Holt estate.
