Get creative at Darlington Court this Care Home Open Day

June 24th 2019


Darlington Court is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.


On Saturday 29th June, from 10am-4pm, the team at Darlington Court will be opening the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event to celebrate Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities.

This year’s theme celebrates the role of arts within care, which is important in encouraging residents’ self-expression, and helps to create meaningful experiences.

Darlington Court has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to mesmerising performances form Circus Brighton and ballroom dancers Emma and Rares, alongside musical entertainment from a ukulele band. Guests will also have the opportunity to take part in a fruit and vegetable carving competition.

Nikki Burke, home manager at Darlington Court, said: “Everyone at Darlington Court is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Rustington have always been so welcoming to us, it’s great to be able to give something back.

“This year’s theme of ‘Celebrating Arts in Care’ is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase all the brilliant activities we get up to on a daily basis here at Darlington Court, such as our arts and crafts sessions, so we hope that lots of local people will join us on Saturday 29th June.”
