Priors House 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.
Visitors to Priors House enjoyed a host of activities in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday including a garden party with live music, cream teas and Pimms cocktails. One of the highlights of the day was a performance by a troop of Morris dancers, and there were also stalls selling crafts and homemade gifts as well as family friendly fun and games.
Francine Summers, home manager at Priors House, 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 Priors House 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.”
The doors to Priors House are always open, the Care UK team hosts a regular dementia café for the local community on the last Friday of each month.
