Care Home Open Day 2015
Care homes can be inspiring places filled with unique, funny and fascinating people...
It’s free to attend, there’s no need to register and everyone is invited!
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities and thousands of care homes across the UK take part each year, welcoming the public and arranging events and activities that help to create lasting links between care home residents and their local communities.
This is all about showing people what excellent care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of local communities, developing relationships across the generations.
The aim is to enrich the lives of the UK’s 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.
Supported by a group of leading care providers, associations, charities and care regulators, Care Home Open Day aims to reinforce the connections care homes have across their local communities, as well as challenging misconceptions about residential care and showcasing the excellent services that are at the heart of communities across the UK.
To date, Care Home Open Day has proven to be a great success and the event is growing year-on-year, with more care homes signing up to take part each time.
Every neighbourhood has a care home nearby and thousands will be welcoming the public with an open invitation to spend time with residents, meet the staff and get involved in events and activities around the home.
There are lots of reasons to get involved! Care homes can be inspiring places filled with unique, funny and fascinating people... and time in their company is always time well spent!
It’s easy to forget that the people living in these homes get real enjoyment from the occasional short visit, and that the carers could always do with the help of an eager volunteer!
