Ambleside celebrates Care Home Open Day with teddy bear’s picnic

June 26th 2017

Ambleside welcomed the local community for a teddy bear’s picnic to celebrate Care Home Open Day.

The team at Ambleside opened the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event organised in celebration of Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities.

Residents were joined by local children from the Monkey Puzzle Nursery for a traditional teddy bear’s picnic, complete with party games and live music from Carpenter’s tribute act, the Sound of Karen. Visitors also tucked into afternoon tea especially prepared by head chef Lisa Morris.

Clare Mudge, home manager at Ambleside, said: “We had a wonderful afternoon celebrating Care Home Open Day with the local community. The event was a brilliant opportunity to break down preconceptions about care home life and showcase the warm and welcoming care environment here at Ambleside.

“The residents loved interacting with the children from Monkey Puzzle Nursery and taking part in the festivities, and everyone commented how much they enjoyed the celebration. We look forward to welcoming the people of Stratford-upon-Avon to join us again very soon.”

The skilled and dedicated team at Ambleside care home delivers a wide range of care, including residential care, short term respite care, nursing care and specialist care for people living with dementia. We were delighted to be rated ‘good’ by the CQC at our last inspection. While delivering quality care is at the heart of what we do, we also believe that moving into a care home is just another part of life, so we support residents to continue to enjoy a wonderful lifestyle. That’s why the home has its own coffee shop, hair and beauty salon and cinema, plus a range of group and one-to-one activities that take place each day.
