Get creative with East Grinstead care home this Care Home Open Day

June 17th 2019

A care home in East Grinstead is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.The local community is invited to get creative this Care Home Open Day

On Wednesday 26th June, from 10am-4pm, the team at Mill View, on Sunnyside Close, 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.

Mill View has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day and life at the home, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors will have the opportunity to try their hand at pottery in a special pottery-making session. There will also be an art gallery, showcasing residents’ work, and a tasty barbecue.

Debbie Wheeler, home manager at Mill 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 party and I know this year is going to be even better. We look forward to making even more connections with the people of East Grinstead and celebrating the vibrant environment in our home.”

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