Come and visit our homes on National Care Home Open Day

National Care Home Open Day is just around the corner, and on Friday 16 June, each of our four care homes will again be welcoming members of the community to visit the home and join them in a number of fun and exciting activities.

This will be a fantastic day, which is all about showing people what excellent care homes are really about, and how they can be at the centre of local communities, helping to develop relationships across the generations.

Please see below for details of the day at each care home. This is a free event, so please do come along and meet our residents, and see what a care home is all about.

Care Home Open Day is about connecting people.  We want to help enrich the lives of our care home residents by reminding people that care homes in every community are filled with unique, intelligent and charming characters, and run by special people that really do care.

As Care Home Open Day’s emphasis is on the importance of connecting with local communities, developing lasting relationships and encouraging intergenerational rapport, the theme for this year will be “Friendship”.

We will be celebrating friendships that have developed between residents, families, friends and staff, as well as with their neighbours, to reinforce how they should be an integral part of their local community.
