Care Home Open Day success at Grangewood care home

Home news

Grangewood care home on Chester Road welcomed the people of Houghton-le-Spring through its doors for an event to celebrate Care Home Open Day.

Grangewood 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 traditional street part at Grangewood 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 game of bingo and karaoke. 

Dorothy Marlow, home manager at Grangewood, 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 Grangewood, 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.”
