The first ever National Care Home Open Day was such a huge success, they decided we’d do it all over again!
Today thousands of UK care homes opened their doors to welcome the public, connect residents with their local communities, and change perceptions of care homes for good. Tracey visited Amherst Court in Chatham to meet with residents and even had a go at knitting.
Today saw the UK’s care homes take centre stage, welcoming the public and arranging lots of events and activities that will help to create lasting links between care home residents and their local communities.
For far too long the care home sector has been marred by the negative press associated with a small number of badly run homes, and together we are determined to show people what care homes are really about. We’re making some positive noise – and we want you to be part of it!
National 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 the care homes in every community are filled with unique, intelligent and charming characters, and run by special people that really do care.
