Oxfordshire care home transformed into a winter wonderland


A dementia specialist care home in Oxfordshire has transformed their home into a winter wonderland to light up the village, and spread Christmas joy after a difficult year.

Every year as an annual gift to the residents, staff, and the local community, Rosebank Care Home has decorated the outside of their home with wonderful lights, for all to enjoy. This year, more than ever, the light installation is hoped to bring some festive cheer to everyone at the home, and those who have supported them throughout this challenging time.

With the countdown to Christmas on, everyone in the home and the community has loved seeing Rosebank light up Bampton. One family member commented: “What a beautiful winter wonderland. Well done to Mandie, Gemma, and Piotr, you have all done the residents proud.”

Jane Roberts, the owner of Rosebank, commented: “After an unsettling year for all, this is so poignant and uplifting to see. Here at Rosebank, we have endeavoured to not let our spirits be dampened, and what better way to spread some joy than with our annual Christmas lights.

“We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and best wishes for a happier 2021 for everyone. We look forward to the creation of new memories, and celebrations with our much loved local community, next year.”

Embracing the festivities, residents have been trying their hands at all kinds of activities over recent weeks, including making Christmas biscuits, chutney, jam making, Christmas puddings, decorating the home, and all the while enjoying a tremendous amount of joyous carol singing.

If you live in the nearby area and wanted to see the lights, you can drive by, and even give us a wave through our twinkling windows.
