Visit to Oak Manor Care Home

Our Visit to Oak Manor Care Home, Shefford

By Eilis, Evie, Mae, Grace, Natalie and Daisy

Last month we raised £485.00 for this local care home thanks to the help of our school community. This money will go towards a sensory garden which will benefit all the residents.

On Friday 18th January, Mrs White and Mr Lee took us to the home so that we could present the cheque.


When we arrived, we were greeted by a member of staff who took us to have a look around the home. We visited upstairs and saw the lovely cinema room, which has huge big windows overlooking Shefford town. We also went to the lounge and dining room. The home has nice bright colours and seems more like a hotel than a care home.


We were then taken downstairs and shown the garden. The      garden is quite big and wraps around the home. The staff have lots of plans to create a relaxing environment for their residents and it made us think about our school prayer garden which has also been made into a place which provides a calm, peaceful area to sit in.

We were then led back to the reception area where there is a   lovely cafe. The staff had arranged for many of the residents to be seated in this because there was an afternoon's entertainment planned. Before this started, we presented the cheque to the      residents and the home’s manager.


All the residents gave us a huge round of applause which made us feel really proud of what we have done for one of our local care homes. We were then asked to join in the entertainment, and the vocalist got us to sing!

We had a really enjoyable time visiting, the home has a great atmosphere and everyone seemed very happy.
