Care Home Open Day success at Cheviot Court care home

Home news

Cheviot Court care home on Horsley Hill Square welcomed the people of South Shields through its doors for an event to celebrate Care Home Open Day.

Cheviot Court 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 coffee morning at Cheviot Court, followed by a traditional street party and afternoon tea in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday.  As part of the celebrations there was live entertainment and many people took part in a fun Royal Family quiz. 

Louise Damms, home manager at Cheviot Court, 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 Cheviot Court, 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.”
