Residents in Holland-on-Sea are invited to take a closer look at the Little Holland Hall care home on Saturday 21 June from 11am to 4pm, when the Care UK team opens its doors as part of National Care Home Open Day.
Little Holland Hall, which is run by leading health and social care provider Care UK, is fully embracing National Care Home Open Day, which aims to welcome members of the public to their local care homes, connecting residents with their communities, and changing perceptions of care homes.
Visitors to Little Holland Hall on Frinton Road, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary since opening, can take part in a variety of activities. Refreshments and tours of the home will be available throughout the day.
Attendees of the open day will also be able to pick up complimentary copies of Care UK’s first- person guides - ‘As Easy As ABC’ guide and the recently launched ‘Listen, Talk, Connect’. The popular guides provide practical information and tips for those caring for loved ones living with dementia, as well as advice on how to communicate with a loved one in a care home and make the most of their visits.
Debbie de Beer, home manager at Little Holland Hall, said: “With 113 care homes across the UK, Care UK has pledged its support to National Care Home Open Day; and on a local level, we are looking forward to welcoming members of the public to Little Holland Hall.
“Some people do still have misconceptions about care homes, and it is therefore necessary to dispel any myths and to demystify everyday life in a care home. We are very proud of Little Holland Hall and we are keen to take the opportunity to showcase everything the care home has to offer and the difference it makes to our residents’ lives.
“On Saturday 21 June, visitors will have the opportunity to get to know the team here, and to find out more about the modern care environment and our approach to activity-based care. We have set out to create a fun and entertaining event for the local community, as well as our residents and their families, and we hope members of the public will join us for what promises to be a memorable day.”
Little Holland Hall is a purpose built care home designed to deliver the very best standards of care, and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home offers a range of services including nursing care, palliative care and respite care.
