Get creative at Echelforde this Care Home Open Day

June 17th 2019

 

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

On Friday 28th June, from 11am-4pm, the team at Echelforde, on College Way, 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.

Echelforde has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to arts and crafts workshop, classical music by a live singer and plenty of tea, coffee and delicious cakes. 

Jagpal Singh, home manager at Echelforde, said: “Everyone at Echelforde is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Ashford 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 Echelforde, such as art and crafts and we hope that lots of local people will join us on Friday 28th June.”

In the heart of Ashford, Surrey, Echelforde is a purpose-built care home, delivering person-centred care. Taking time to know each resident, our compassionate teams understand that a smile or pleasant word goes a long way. Learning their preferences, favourite activities and life story, allow these details to be included in their tailored care plan. This plan is regularly updated and also includes meticulously kept medical notes. Providing residents with a warm and welcoming home, Echelforde offers comfortable, spacious lounges, beautiful dining rooms, a hair and beauty salon, shop and a bar. Outside the gardens are perfect for a quiet stroll, or some gentle exercise. If they wish, residents are welcome to join in with a little light gardening. Activities, such as quizzes, handcrafts and singing, or outings to local attractions, take place regularly, and residents can join in or look for a one-to-one session if they prefer. We also foster strong connections with the local community and many residents enjoy socialising with their new friends.
