Part of the community

We understand how important it is to keep connected to your local community


Continuing to feel part of the local community is important as we age

That’s why our teams ensure residents stay connected to their community and the people they care about. Many residents come from the local community, and we’re keen for them to continue their links with local groups as much as possible.

Our homes play an active part in community life too. We invite schools and community groups such as local clubs, charities and performers to visit us regularly. Everyone gets a warm welcome.

Discover a few of our recent collaborations with local communities

  • Local school children won a competition to name the suites at our brand new Cardiff care home, Llys Herbert, which is due to open its doors this summer.
  • Head Chef Lee from Hadrian Park raised over £6,880 for local charities. His brillaint fundraising efforts have seen Lee do all sorts, from jumping out of a plane in a Skydive for Cancer Research to a sleep out to support homeless veterans that served in the Armed Forces.
  • The team at Maids Moreton Hall are inviting local blue-light workers in the local community for breakfast. On the second Tuesday of every month the team give out free take-away breakfasts as a small token of thanks for their hard work.

Bringing generations together

Intergenerational relationships can be incredibly beneficial to both younger and older people alike, providing residents with a sense of responsibility and purpose. That's why our homes work with schools, clubs and other local groups.

Winchcombe Place were proud to donate £400 to AFC Newbury under 14s to sponsor the team’s new kit. They even hosted a residents vs children football match!

Bedtime stories

To celebrate National Storytelling Week – and to promote a love of literature in all ages – residents from our Cavell Court care home, in Norwich, have created short videos retelling four classic children’s tales, to ensure no child misses a bedtime story.

Green-fingered fun

Many residents in our homes enjoy getting out in the garden – and it shows! Several Care UK care homes have won awards in community flower competitions.

In 2022, Glastonbury Court was named the champion of Bury in Bloom, an annual competition of gardens in Bury St Edmunds, for the second year running, while nearby home Davers Court took home the bronze. Meanwhile Rossetti House won the silver medal in Frome in Bloom 2022.

Further north, the team at Care UK's newest care home, Oxbow Manor, celebrated its flourishing relationship with a local charity with a donation and a special crocus planting session.

Sharing expert advice

We believe in playing our part in supporting people in the local community who may be caring for loved ones at home. Throughout the year we run lots of free, informative events at our homes and welcome friends, family and the wider circle of the community to come along and join us. Keep an eye on your local care home website or get in touch with us to find out when we’re holding the next event.

Our homes also develop good relationships with GPs and other local healthcare professionals to share knowledge, exchange ideas and to ensure residents have continued access to effective, high-quality care and specialist services.
