Pear Tree 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 Pear Tree 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.
Pear Tree Court has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors will also be treated to cakes specially prepared by residents in a charity bake-off contest and will have the opportunity to browse an array of arts and craft stalls.
Helen Kalnicky, home manager at Pear Tree Court, said: “Everyone at Pear Tree Court is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Horndean 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 Pear Tree Court, such as our arts and craft sessions, so we hope that lots of local people will join us on Saturday 29th June.”
