Cathkin House care home invites people in East Kilbride to celebrate Care Home Open Day

June 7th 2016

Care UK’s Cathkin House care home in East Kilbride is inviting local people to visit the home on Glasgow Road on Friday 17th June to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.

From 2pm until 4pm, the team at Cathkin House will be opening the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event. The day is in celebration of Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities. 

People of East Kilbride are invited to meet the home manager, Lynn Rossi, and find out more about what life is like a Cathkin House. Visitors will also be able to enjoy tea and tempting homemade cakes baked by the care home’s head chef. 

Lynn Rossi, home manager at Cathkin House, said: “Care Home Open Day is about connecting people and enriching the lives of residents through building lasting relationships with the local community across the generations.  

“Opening our doors is also a great opportunity to show what life is really like in a modern care home; and we hope to change any preconceptions people might have while also showing everything Cathkin House has to offer. 

“We have got a fun day of activities planned and are really looking forward to getting behind Care Home Open Day on Friday 17th June and welcoming the people of East Kilbride to be a part of it.” 

Visitors to the Care Home Open Day event at East Kilbride will also be able to pick up their copy of Care UK’s Eating as we Age.  The latest in a series of free guides for family carers, Eating as we age is packed with hints and tips for keeping healthy and hydrated in older age.  The guide can also be downloaded free at

Cathkin House is a care home where residents enjoy life to the full. Their busy entertainment programme includes visits from musicians, dancers, comedians and magicians. There are also regular outings to local parks and museums as well as barge trips. And everyone looks forward to the annual Big Day Out which includes a day at the seaside followed by an evening of music and dancing.
