Get creative at Tor-Na-Dee this Care Home Open Day

June 24th 2019

 

Tor-Na-Dee are inviting local people to join in their celebrations for Care Home Open Day.

On Friday 28th June, from 2pm - 4pm, the team at Tor-Na-Dee 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.

Tor-Na-Dee has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to live music from Jack McPherson and an exhibition of the residents’ work, alongside Milltimber Primary School’s art project. 

Maureen Barrett, home manager at Tor-Na-Dee, said: “Care Home Open Day is such a wonderful opportunity for our home to connect with the local community and show what it’s really like to live in a care home. We’re counting down the days until we welcome the people of Aberdeen into Tor-Na-Dee.

“The residents are really excited to showcase their artistic skills, and we’re all particularly looking forward to Jack McPherson’s performance. I know the residents and community are going to have a great time!”

Tor-Na-Dee is a lively home where the focus is on staying active. The arts and crafts group make soap to sell at the home’s summer fair, while the gardening club grow tomatoes and peppers in the greenhouse. Friends and family also love to get involved - one relative leads the music group, another accompanies the regular singsongs on the organ, whilst others help out in the garden.
