Care Home Open Day 16 June 2017
It's time to join with our global colleagues to celebrate Care Home Open Day again. 16th June or anytime in the week around that date! 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. Wouldn't it be great to see that happening in SA?
Care Home Open Day was started as a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Thousands of care homes across the UK and other parts of the world 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.
What do we want to achieve?
Care Home Open Day is about connecting people! We want to enrich the lives of SA'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.
