Wytham House welcomes local MP Nicola Blackwood

Specialist dementia care home Wytham House in Farmoor, Oxfordshire were delighted to welcome the MP for Oxford West and Abingdon, Nicola Blackwood on Friday 16th September where she met with the manager, care team and residents, enjoyed a full tour of the home and joined the residents for lunch.

Nicola Blackwood requested a visit to the newly-opened home when she saw it being built last year. The dementia-friendly design of Wytham House follows guidelines from the University of Stirling Dementia Centre with features that include the use of colour and contrast for safety and perception, plus clear signage with icons to help wayfinding.

Andy Williams, Home Manager, said:
“We were delighted that our local MP, Nicola Blackwood took the time out of her very busy schedule to support us and meet our residents. All of our team undergo award-winning in-house dementia training and she was really impressed with the building and its furnishings. She spent a while with different people, finding out about the home, its staff and how committed we are to enhancing the lives of the residents here.”

Wytham House provides specialist residential and nursing dementia care in a purpose built environment for up to 40 people and opened in July 2016.

If you would like to find out more about life at Wytham House and the care we offer, or to request a meeting with our Home Manager, please contact us on 0808 202 3303 or wythamhouse@CaringHomes.org.
