Winchcombe Place care home invites people in Newbury to celebrate Care Home Open Day

June 6th 2016

francisctvolparty-9Care UK’s Winchcombe Place care home in Newbury, is inviting local people to visit the home on Maple Crescent on Friday 17th June to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.

From 11am until 4pm, the team at Winchcombe Place 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. 

The theme of this year’s event at Winchcombe Place is celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday, complete with a picnic in the garden. Residents and visitors will be able to enjoy entertainment from the Trinity College swing band, and visitors can either buy or bring their own food, but a blanket is necessary from those attending! There will also be the opportunity to meet the team and view the beautiful home.

Stephanie Jones, home manager at Winchcombe Place, 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 Winchcombe Place 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 Newbury to be a part of it.” 

Visitors to the Care Home Open Day event at Winchcombe Place will also be able to pick up their copy of Care UK’s Eating as we Age.  The latest in a series of free guides for family carers, Eating as we age is packed with hints and tips for keeping healthy and hydrated in older age.  The guide can also be downloaded free at
