Please accept our invitation to join us in the celebration of "Windy's" long and beautiful life.
We don't consider you as "staff" but as extended family.

We can't thank you all enough for the wonderful care and support you all gave, not only to Mum but also to us. Cam

Dear Woburn staff - you have all been stars. Your care, attention and love shown to Doreen was so appreciated as was you always keeping us the family up to date. Mum was very happy at Woburn because of the caring staff. Doreen's family

Special Features
Special Features
Woburn Home itself has been built for many years and the outside remains mostly untouched.

Our new gardener in the last six months has worked hard on modernizing our garden to be more user friendly.

We encourage our rest home residents to stay active. There are exercises every couple of mornings and other activities that encourage use of the "use it or lose it theory".

Woburn has its own bus and the activities staff organize outings to all sorts of interesting places.
We have a small but active group of volunteers who help us out when needed.

On Fridays, everyone enjoys their afternoon happy hours with lots of singing and dancing.

In our dementia section we have a great spa bath which those who want to share it from the rest home can book a spa on a Thursday. This is just a new initiative but has been welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed by those who have had one.
