Get creative at Elmstead House this Care Home Open Day

June 24th 2019


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

Noella at MM

On Friday 28th June, from 12noon - 4pm, the team at Elmstead House 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.

Elmstead House has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to enjoying live opera and choir performances, while residents will have the opportunity to polish their artistic skills during an arts and crafts session. An exhibition filled with residents’ creative work will also be on display, and guests will have the opportunity to try their luck at a raffle.

The home will also celebrate the launch of the Namaste room, which offers a calm environment, with soft lighting and relaxing music for residents to enjoy various treatments, including hand massages. 

Helen Hulme, home manager at Elmstead House, said: “Everyone at Elmstead House is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Hendon 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 Elmstead House, such as our arts and crafts sessions, so we hope that lots of local people will join us on Friday 28th June.
