Glebefields care centre
was featured in the Banbury Guardian this week for its outstanding
commitment to providing excellent social activities for its residents.
Spotlight on active residents
A BANBURY nursing home is in focus this week as cameras zoom in
on their social activities which have been highlighted as an example of
excellence in the care of the elderly.
Glebefields, a private
residential home in Drayton, was picked out by the National Association
for Provision of Activities for Older People (NAPA) as one of three
institutions which demonstrate the breadth of social activities needed
to keep elderly people happy, as active as possible and stimulated.
Tuesday, film-maker Alex Goodman and his crew accompanied resident Phil
Shapland and his daughter Annie Reid to the Redwings horse and donkey
sanctuary at Oxhill to record an outing.
In the coming two
weeks, the crew will be filming a wide range of social activities
enjoyed by residents, from visits by volunteers and their pets to
cooking clubs, swimming, art classes, trips to the theatre and to town,
themed lunches, gardening and visiting entertainers.
