Cavell Court care home on Dragonfly Lane welcomed the people of Cringleford through its doors for an event to celebrate Care Home Open Day.
Cavell Court was one of thousands of care homes across the UK which took part in the annual initiative aimed at challenging perceptions of care homes, connecting residents with even more people in their community, and developing relationships across the generations.
Visitors to Cavell Court enjoyed a host of activities for the ‘day by the seaside’ themed event, complete with a beach and donkeys. Live entertainment was provided by a Barber Shop Quartet and there was a chance to spend time with some furry friends from ‘Pets as Therapy’. Everyone also enjoyed homemade doughnuts, ice cream and a barbecue.
Samantha Woods, customer relations manager at Cavell Court said: “Our doors are always open, but Care Home Open Day was a brilliant opportunity to celebrate with visitors, residents and colleagues alike. We all are proud of the warm and welcoming quality care environment we have created here at Cavell Court, and we took great delight in showcasing our home and all the good work we do here.
“The day was a real success, and everyone enjoyed getting involved in the activities and building on our links with the local community.”
