Care Home Open Week is a national event hosted by Championing Social Care and this year ran from 28th June to 4th July.
Its purpose is to connect care homes with their local communities, challenge misconceptions about care and remind everyone that the unique individuals who live in care homes are supported by dedicated and professional caring teams.
As part of our celebrations, all of our homes have laid on exciting and varied events – let’s take a look!
At Amberley Hall in Kings Lynn we hosted our first ever open air cinema!
Our screening of Grease was a huge hit, as were the snacks! We had popcorn, ice cream and candyfloss, as well as a few selfie props to capture the day.
Over in Peterborough, Ashlynn Grange laid on pamper sessions for our residents and visitors and some amazing live entertainment.
Our kitchen team also produced some beautiful cakes which went down a treat!
Over in Ipswich we welcomed friends, family and prospects to join their loved ones for our coffee and quiz morning at Avocet Court.
With pastries, cakes and brilliant company, we all had a lovely time taking part in the quiz!
Last, but certainly not least, at Goodwins Hall in Kings Lynn we held our first fete in a few years.
We had Laura Turner delivering some amazing live music, petting donkeys, pamper points and amazing baking on display throughout the day.
We even had a feature in the local paper with a little bit more about our day.
The day itself is fundraising for charity and as part of that, our residents have upcycled a chair which is currently listed for sale online here.
