Greville House is inviting local people to visit the home to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
On Friday 20th April, from 10am-4pm, the team at Greville House 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.
To commemorate the Queen’s 92nd birthday, Greville House has organised a royal-inspired party to celebrate the open day. With homemade crowns at the ready, guests can look forward to a royal ball themed celebration, with performances from Victorian and Edwardian singing troupe, the Bold Balladiers, and a special performance of songs and poetry from local pupils. There will be traditional games and activities for visitors to take part in, and guests will be able to enjoy a variety of delicious snacks and refreshments, including a chocolate fountain and ice cream stall.
Vivian Epie, home manager at Greville House, said: “We’ve already had a brilliant start to the year at Greville House, and our Care Home Open Day celebrations are set to be a real highlight. The day is all about enriching the lives of residents by building lasting relationships with the community, so what better excuse to invite the people of Richmond to the home than to celebrate the Queen’s birthday.
“The residents are looking forward to decorating the home fit for a queen, and we cannot wait to open our doors for this royal celebration.”
