Mill View gets toes tapping during arty open day

July 12th 2019

 

There were celebrations all round when the team at Mill View welcomed the local community in for a day of art-themed fun and games.

The team at Mill View were joined by local people for Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative set up to develop lasting relationships between care homes and local communities, and to dispel common myths about care home life.   

This year’s theme celebrated the role of arts within care, which is important in encouraging residents’ self-expression, and helps to create meaningful experiences.

On the day, residents and visitors polished their artistic skills with a pottery session, and tapped their feet to live entertainment from Creative Notes during a special music therapy session.   

As part of a nationwide competition for all Care UK homes, Mill View also developed a work of art in the lead up to the open day, which was unveiled at the event.

Debbie Wheeler, home manager at Mill View, said: “Creative activities are important for people in care, whether it’s painting to help enhance hand-eye coordination, or simply reminiscing by putting on some music – the arts are a vital part of life here at Mill View.

“We’re pleased so many people from the local community joined us for Care Home Open Day. We always have a great time hosting this annual event and opening our doors to local people in East Grinstead to show them just how much fun you can have in a care home. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
