Care Home Open Day success at Cherry Orchard care home

Company news

Cherry Orchard care home on Richard Ryan Place welcomed the people of Dagenham through its doors for an event to celebrate Care Home Open Day.

Cherry Orchard was one of thousands of care homes across the UK which took part in the annual initiative aimed at challenging perceptions of care homes, connecting residents with even more people in their community, and developing relationships across the generations.

Residents and visitors enjoyed a summer fete at Cherry Orchard complete with a host of activities.  There was live entertainment, a barbecue, tombola and a raffle; as well as fun for all the family with games and face painting.

Michelle di Bella, home manager at Cherry Orchard, said: “Our doors are always open, but Care Home Open Day was a brilliant opportunity to celebrate with visitors, residents and colleagues alike.  We all are proud of the warm and welcoming quality care environment we have created here at Cherry Orchard, and we took great delight in showcasing our home and all the good work we do here.

“The day was a real success, and everyone enjoyed getting involved in the activities and building on our links with the local community.”
