A taste of summer at Ellesmere House for Care Home Open Day

July 19th 2017

Residents at Ellesmere House welcomed local people for a world cuisine party to celebrate Care Home Open Day.

Ellesmere House was one of thousands of care homes across the UK to take part in the annual initiative aimed at challenging perceptions of care homes, connecting residents with people in their community, and developing relationships across the generations.

To celebrate the open day, the team at Ellesmere House hosted a world cuisine party where residents and visitors enjoyed a delicious selection of treats from around the globe, including Caribbean and West Indian cuisine. Local singer Fiona Roose got everyone in the party spirit with live entertainment throughout the afternoon, and there was also a beach area with real sand and plenty of refreshments from a juice bar to keep everyone cool.

Francesca Keating, home manager at Ellesmere House, said: “Our doors are always open, but Care Home Open Day is a particular highlight each year as it is a brilliant opportunity to showcase our home and celebrate with visitors, residents and colleagues alike. 

“This year’s event was a real success, and everyone enjoyed getting involved in the activities and building our links within the local community. We hope that all our visitors enjoyed themselves as much as we did and look forward to welcoming them back to the home for events in the future.”
