On Friday 28th June, from 2.30pm - 5.30pm, the team at Bowes House, on Battle Road, will be opening the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event to celebrate Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities.
This year’s theme celebrates the role of arts within care, which is important in encouraging residents’ self-expression, and helps to create meaningful experiences.
Bowes House has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to an art exhibition, filled with residents’ work, and will be treated to a cream tea specially prepared by Bowes House chefs.
Helena Barrow, home manager at Bowes House, said: “Everyone at Bowes House is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Hailsham have always been so welcoming to us, it’s great to be able to give something back.
“This year’s theme of ‘Celebrating Arts in Care’ is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase all the brilliant activities we get up to on a daily basis here at Bowes House, such as our arts and crafts sessions, so we hope that lots of local people will join us on Friday 28th June.”
