A care home in Eye is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
On Saturday 29th June 2019, from 2pm-4pm, the team at Hartismere Place, on Castleton Way, 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.
Hartismere Place has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to an array of exciting activities, including a dog show, an art gallery displaying residents’ art, and a raffle and tombola. Visitors will also be able to treat themselves to an ice cream or a visit to the sweet stalls.
Abhilash Gopi, home manager at Hartismere Place, said: “Everyone at Hartismere Place is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Eye 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 Hartismere Place, such as our wonderful art gallery filled with resident art. We hope that lots of local people will join us in June!”
As part of a nationwide competition across Care UK homes, Hartismere Place will be developing a work of art in the lead up to the open day, which will be showcased at the event.
