Making poppy wreaths

Date posted: 25th November 2021

In honour of Remembrance Day, our residents at Lincroft Meadow Care Home in Kidlington, worked together to make poppy wreaths using felt and buttons. 

Pictured is our resident Janet, who thoroughly enjoyed making the poppies as it reminded her of when she used to help her husband make the poppy wreaths in his florist many years ago. On Remembrance Day, our residents gathered in the bistro to join together in a two minute silence. As well as laying the poppy wreaths and reading a few poems our residents listened to some hymns and wartime songs. 

Finding Nemo

Date posted: 25th October 2021

Many of our residents at Lincroft Meadow care home, enjoy taking day trips around Kidlington and surrounding areas. One of our residents, Carol, was asked what she would like to do for the day and she asked to go visit some fish! Our wonderful staff members, Brenda and Stephen accompanied Carol to the fish shop and enjoyed viewing the variety of fish they had available. We love to complete our resident’s requests and we can’t wait to see what Carol wants to do next time!

A visit for Paddy

Date posted: 25th October 2021

One of our residents, Paddy, had a visit from a few members of the local fire department who came to see her. Many years ago, Paddy taught them table tennis when they were young boys! They had a lot of catching up to do and we were absolutely thrilled to have them visit Lincroft Meadow.
