Join Echelforde for summer fun to celebrate Care Home Open Day

June 7th 2017

Echelforde is inviting local people to visit the home on Friday 16th June to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.

From 12pm-4pm, the team at Echelforde will be opening the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event. The day is in celebration of Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities.

Echelforde has organised a summer garden party to celebrate the open day. There will be a selection of tasty treats, prepared by the care home’s chefs, as well as live entertainment from local singer, Dave Mac. Visitors will be able to browse a number of stalls on the day, selling DVDs, books, tidy bears, games and bric-a-brac.

The friendly team at Echelforde will also be on hand to give advice and information on the different types of care they provide.

Jagpal Singh, home manager at Echelforde, said: “Care Home Open Day is about connecting people and enriching the lives of residents through lasting relationships with the local community across the generations. 

“We cannot wait to open our doors to the community to showcase everything Echelforde has to offer and the difference care homes make to residents’ lives and their wellbeing. We have planned a fun day for all the family and a warm welcome awaits the people of Ashford.”

In the heart of Ashford, Surrey, Echelforde is a purpose-built care home, delivering person-centred care.

Taking time to know each resident, our compassionate teams understand that a smile or pleasant word goes a long way. Learning their preferences, favourite activities and life story, allow these details to be included in their tailored care plan. This plan is regularly updated and also includes meticulously kept medical notes.

Providing residents with a warm and welcoming home, Echelforde offers comfortable, spacious lounges, beautiful dining rooms, a hair and beauty salon, shop and a bar. Outside the gardens are perfect for a quiet stroll, or some gentle exercise. If they wish, residents are welcome to join in with a little light gardening. Activities, such as quizzes, handcrafts and singing, or outings to local attractions, take place regularly, and residents can join in or look for a one-to-one session if they prefer. We also foster strong connections with the local community and many residents enjoy socialising with their new friends.
