Manor Lodge is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
On Friday 28th June, from 10.30am - 4pm, the team at Manor Lodge, on Manor Road, 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.
Manor Lodge has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to a musical theatre performance from Frederick Douglas Productions and a musical-themed canvas painting competition. Guests can also channel their inner Mary Berry with a croquembouche display and tasting session, and enjoy a traditional fish and chip lunch.
Juliana Miles, home manager at Manor Lodge, said: “Everyone at Manor Lodge is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Chelmsford 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 Manor Lodge, so we hope that lots of local people will join us on 28th June.”
