Oak House celebrates a decade of memories

May 11 2019

 

Residents and team members at Oak House were joined by local people to mark the home’s tenth birthday. 

To celebrate the special milestone, Oak House welcomed a host of friendly animals from Ark Farm, including lambs and chickens. Visitors were invited to satisfy their sweet tooth with an ice cream van specially in attendance for the occasion.  

Guests were also treated to a delicious birthday cake baked by the Oak House chef. Musical entertainment was provided by Paul, a singer and ventriloquist from Care Entertainment, who kept the party atmosphere going all afternoon. 

Yvonne Keating, home manager at Oak House, said: “A lot of planning and preparation went into creating a fun day for residents, their families and the local community – and I’m delighted to say all the hard work was worthwhile! We all had a fantastic time and it was wonderful to see so many people from the local community celebrate the day with us. 

“The last ten years have been a whirlwind. We’ve welcomed some real characters to the home, built relationships with brilliant local organisations, and worked hard to create a real home-from-home environment for everyone who spends time with us here at Oak House.

“On behalf of the whole team I would like to say a huge thank you to all those who have been a part of our journey over the last few years – and to everyone who celebrated our birthday with us. We’re excited to see what’s in store for the next ten years and beyond!”
