It’s Care Home Open Day today….
A UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities.
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.
This year we are once again partnering with The Big Lunch, which is the UK's annual get together for neighbours. Every year in June since the idea began in 2009, millions of people stop what they're doing and get together with neighbours in a nationwide act of community and friendship. In partnering with National Care Home Open Day in 2017, The Big Lunch is aiming to support care homes all over the country to open their doors and invite the community in.
Care Home Open Day is about connecting people! We want 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.
