Get creative at Heather View this Care Home Open Day

June 19th 2019

 

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

The home is inviting the local community to get arty for Care Home Open Day

On Friday 28th June, from 10.30am - 4pm, the team at Heather View 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.

Heather View has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to a photography display made by Beacon Academy students, alongside a special pottery class. There will also be an art exhibition, filled with residents’ work. 

Natasha King, home manager at Heather View, said: “The aim of this year’s Care Home Open Day is to demonstrate how care homes can be creative communities, and that is exactly what we plan to do. We can’t wait to open our doors to local people, including families, and have some fun together.

“Last year we had a great time hosting a royal-themed celebration and I know this year is going to be even better. We look forward to making even more connections with the people of Crowborough and celebrating the vibrant environment in our home.”

As part of a nationwide competition across Care UK homes, Heather View will be developing a work of art in the lead up to the open day, which will be showcased at the event.

Our Heather View care home has 74 spacious rooms, all with 24-hour nurse call systems, en-suite facilities, TVs and electronically adjustable beds. We get to know all of our residents so we can ensure that we create a care plan that is perfectly suited to their needs, including any hobbies or interests that we can help them take part in. Heather View is a real home from home, with a shop, tearoom, library, cinema and hair salon. These are set around an indoor village green, which is a popular spot for our residents to spend time. Our beautiful gardens enable residents to spend time outdoors, playing games or relaxing taking in the stunning surroundings.
