Haverhill care home spends ‘A day at the Oscars’ at themed Care Home Open Day event

Home news

In celebration of Care Home Open Day on 17th June, Cleves Place care home welcomed the local community for a glitzy and glamorous ‘Day at the Oscars’ themed party.

Residents, relatives and visitors enjoyed canapés and Bucks Fizz, a catwalk show, afternoon cream teas and entertainment by a Hollywood-style singer. Cleves Place was one of thousands of care homes to take part in Care Home Open Day this year with the aim of challenging perceptions of care homes, connecting residents with even more people in their community, and developing relationships across the generations.

Sharlene Van Tonder, home manager at Cleves Place, said: “It was a wonderful day and we were delighted to see so many local people. Residents had a brilliant day and it was great to strengthen our relationships with the wider community.”

Visitors to the Care Home Open Day event at Cleves Place were also able to pick up their free copies of Care UK’s advice guides, including ‘Listen, talk, connect’, ‘As Easy as ABC’, ‘Good to Go’ and the new ‘Eating as we age’ guide which provides practical tips and recipe ideas for eating well in older age. For those who didn’t pick up a copy on the day, the free guides can be downloaded online at careuk.com/support-for-carers.
