Care Home Open Day is taking place for the 5th time on 16th June 2017!
Once again care homes are planning to celebrate connections with their local communities. After a successful day of celebrating great care across the UK on Care Home Open Day 2016, and with over 4,300 care homes taking part, the date for 2017 is confirmed as Friday 16th June.
As Care Home Open Day’s emphasis is on the importance of connecting with local communities, developing lasting relationships and encouraging intergenerational rapport, the theme for next year will be “Friendship” and as part of 2017's event, we will be celebrating Care Home Open Day in conjunction with The Big Lunch.
Care homes are encouraged to celebrate friendships that have developed between residents, families, friends and staff, as well as with their neighbours, to reinforce how they should be an integral part of their local community.
