Eye community enjoy arts and crafts at Care Home Open Day event

June 30th 2015

In celebration of Care Home Open Day on 19th June, Paddock House care home welcomed the community for a day of arts and crafts.

Paddock House was one of thousands of care homes to take part in Care Home Open Day this year with the aim of challenging perceptions of care homes, connecting residents with even more people in their community, and developing relationships across the generations.

Kym Denny, home manager at Paddock House, said: “It was a wonderful day and we were delighted to see so many local people pop in and see us. It was great to show the facilities we have at Paddock House care home and our adjacent wellbeing centre, as well as strengthen relationships with the wider community.

“Residents, relatives and visitors all had great fun clay modelling and painting, as well as enjoying pampering sessions and a Ploughman’s lunch.”
