Exploring our local history at The Oaks

Residents at The Oaks Care Home have been sharing their stories about life in Newark as part of their local history activities.

Many used to go dancing every week at the Corn Exchange and Trevor explained that it was so named as it used to be a farm shop.

Norman talked fondly of when his mum bought him his first suit and can still remember the feeling as he looked in the mirror wearing his smart attire.

As well as sharing memories of their younger days, residents talked about how much things have changed over the years and Norman was particularly interested in comparing cars old and new.

Magic Moments Coordinator, Rachel, said: “Reminiscing about fond memories is important for our wellbeing as we get older and is great exercise for our minds. It’s wonderful to hear our residents share the life experiences that connect them to our local community.”

The Oaks Care Home, Rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is located in Balderton, Newark and provides residential carenursing carerespite care and palliative care.
