NorseCare open up their doors for Care Home Open Day 2018

24 April 2018

NorseCare settings opened their doors to welcome local communities as part of Care Home Open Day 2018.  The annual event took place on Saturday 21st April with a theme of Linking Communities.

Homes laid on coffee mornings, afternoon teas and most took the opportunity with the warm and sunny weather to use the gardens outside our settings to welcome families and friends from the local communities.  This year’s date coincided with the Queen’s 92nd birthday, so many decided to have a Royal theme to their day – with bunting, crown-making and other patriotic activities.  At the Bowthorpe Care Village, Zootastic brought along their unusual and exotic animals for everyone to see, touch and hold.  High Haven in Downham Market held a Royal tea party, enjoyed by families and residents alike.  Lydia Eva Court in Gorleston held a Spring carnival in the gardens at the home with tombolas, face painting and entertainment.  Lloyd Court in Holt took the opportunity to launch their ‘Ellie project’ – designed to offer enriching, stimulating and fun activities for the tenants of Lloyd Court, with a focus on those who have dementia or mental health issues, or suffer with loneliness.

Ann Reynolds, NorseCare’s Director of Care said: "Care Home Open Day is a great way to show the excellent services on offer and the fantastic work that goes on in our care settings.  It was wonderful to welcome everyone on such a sunny and warm weekend to join in with all the activities and events."
