Painting beach scenes at Oaken Holt

Following conversations about our residents’ memories of the beach and the seaside, residents at Oaken Holt care home in Farmoor, Oxfordshire decided to recreate a beach scene using different materials such as paints, glitter, shells and sand.

We talked about our memories of days by the sea, candy floss, Punch and Judy shows, paddling in the sea and what seemed to be a firm favourite was the ice creams, from the seller on a bike in his straw boater. They all remembered being very excited for the delicious ice cream on those summer days.

Our residents all enjoyed getting exploring their creative sides and were very pleased with their results. That’s not all, at our forthcoming Farm Day event on 15th July, they will be for sale on our very own activities stall which will display our residents recent works.

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 on the Oaken Holt estate.
