Three care homes in Islington are inviting local people to join in their family-friendly celebrations for Care Home Open Day.

On Friday 28th June, the care teams will be opening the doors of Highbury New Park, from 11am - 4pm, Lennox House from 11.30am - 3.30pm and Muriel Street, from 10am - 4pm. 

The events 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.

Homes have organised art-themed parties to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Visitors can look forward to a Mad Hatter’s tea party at Muriel Street, including face painting, giant Jenga and an array of other games. 

There will also be live opera performances at Muriel Street and Lennox House, with professional singers from Songhaven, and entertainment from singer and guitarist Mat, who will be singing golden oldies, at Highbury New Park, alongside a poetry writing workshop. 

Sibusisiwe Moyo, home manager at Lennox House, said: “Creative activities are such an important part of life for people in care, whether it’s painting to help enhance hand-eye coordination, or just reminiscing by putting on some music – the arts are a vital part of life here at Lennox House.”

Tom Parry, home manager at Muriel Street, added: “We’re so excited to be hosting our Care Home Open Day event this Friday 28th June. We had a brilliant time when we did this last year so it made sense for us to open our doors to the local people of Islington again and show them just how much fun you can have in a care home.”
