We believe it’s important for our residents to continue to experience life outside of our care homes through organised day trips and visits out with their friends and families. It’s also critical for them to have the opportunity to build links with, and remain part of, their local communities.
To support our residents in playing an active part of their local communities, we host many events throughout the year to encourage people living locally to come and spend time with us. They are welcomed into our homes to get to know our residents and teams, take part in the entertainment and activities on offer and enjoy a bite to eat and a cuppa.
The below events are just a flavour of the community events we are hosting this year, in addition to our frequent clubs and social get-togethers. For more details about these, or other upcoming celebrations in your local care home, please contact our teams here.
Care Home Open Day
We’re delighted to be supporting this national event where care homes across the country open their doors to the public with the key values of friendship, making connections and celebrating older and vulnerable people.
Our homes are in the process of choosing their themed events for this year for what promises to be a wonderful day for our residents, teams, and visitors.
July and August
We have everything crossed for a warm and dry summer this year as we invite the local community into our care homes and gardens to celebrate the season.
With BBQs, summer fairs, fish and chips and ice-creams galore — we have our sunhats, gazebos and sun cream at the ready (as well as wet weather plans!) in preparation for our fun-filled events.
Entering its seventh year, Silver Sunday is a day that celebrates older people with the key aims of recognising their contribution to their communities and helping them to get out and about to meet new people.
So what better way for us to support the cause again this year, than to invite older people in our local communities into our care homes to spark up new friendships with our residents while enjoying themed events and entertainment!
Celebrating the festive season
Christmas celebrations begin in our homes in early December — giving us plenty of opportunities to welcome visitors to enjoy the festive season with us. On offer will be themed arts and crafts sessions, visits from local school children, carol services, visiting entertainers and plenty of minced pies washed down with a warming tipple or hot chocolate with all of the trimmings.
Our residents and teams will undoubtedly pull out all of the stops to make sure our 2020 events are a resounding success so come and join in the fun! Find out more information about your local care home’s upcoming events by contacting them here.
