Tall Trees celebrates National Care Home Open Day

Tall Trees care home in Shipton-under-Wychwood residents and team celebrated National Care Home Open Day at their home on Friday the 16th of June 2017.

Residents, relatives, members of the local community and our team celebrated this event whilst also fundraising for a new home, a chicken coop, for our recent feathered residents who have joined us at our home.

Our event was kindly opened when our Special Guest Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Mr Poul Christensen CBE DL cut the ribbon.

We had live entertainment provided by Ivor and Irene who sang lots of familiar songs for our residents and guests to sing along with.

As we now are the proud owners of some very cute chickens, they also joined us at our event and were around for all to see and went down very well. Unfortunately the Owl Display was cancelled last minute due to sickness but our new feathered friends certainly created a stir and were a star attraction.

.A delicious traditional afternoon tea was made by our chef Tony, and we enjoyed glasses of Pimm’s in the garden. That was not all, we also held a raffle with some great prizes and held a cake stall.

We are delighted to announce we raised £123 for our new chicks so they will be moving into their new residence shortly. We would just like to say a big thank you to everyone involved and we were delighted with the support that was given by all.

Home Manager Michelle Little said;

“The team at Tall Trees are very proud of our home and proud of our links with the community.

“As part of National Care Home Open Day we were very pleased to welcome people to spend some time with us, enjoy refreshments in our beautiful garden, meet our residents and team and discover what our home is all about.”

At Tall Trees we provide personalised nursing, dementia and residential care, for up to 60 elderly residents and were recently rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission.
