Care UK’s Norfolk House care home in Weybridge, is inviting local people to visit the home on Portmore Park Road on Friday 17th June to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
From 10.30am until 4pm, the team at Norfolk 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.
In honour of The Queen’s 90th birthday, there will be right royal celebration at Norfolk House on Friday. Residents and visitors will be able to enjoy a glass of Champagne, tea and homemade cakes, and there will be live entertainment to help everyone get into the party spirit. There will also be an opportunity to get involved with an art therapy session; and all those who drop-by on the day can meet the Care UK team at Norfolk House and take a tour of the care home.
Sabu Prothasis, home manager at Norfolk House, said: “Care Home Open Day is about connecting people and enriching the lives of residents through building lasting relationships with the local community across the generations.
“Opening our doors is also a great opportunity to show what life is really like in a modern care home; and we hope to change any preconceptions people might have while also showing everything Norfolk House has to offer.
“We have got a fun day of activities planned and are really looking forward to getting behind Care Home Open Day on Friday 17th June and welcoming the people of Weybridge to be a part of it.”
