Mountfitchet House care home invites people in Stansted to celebrate Care Home Open Day

Home news

Care UK’s Mountfitchet House care home on Coltsfield in Stansted Mountfitchet is inviting local people to visit the home on Saturday 18th June to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.

From 10.30am until 3.30pm, the team at Mountfitchet House will be opening the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event. The day is in celebration of Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities. 

There will be a right royal party at Mountfitchet House on Saturday, with this year’s open day event held in honour of The Queen’s 90th birthday.  Residents and visitors will be able to browse stalls selling the likes of local crafts, items for pampered pets, Phoenix Cards, a selection of plants and homemade cakes.  

There will be entertainment throughout the day with line dancing and cake making, along with face painting and balloon modelling for younger members of the family. An ice cream van will be serving up summery treats, with other refreshments also available.  

Allison Squires, home manager at Mountfitchet House, said: “Care Home Open Day is about connecting people and enriching the lives of residents through building lasting relationships with the local community across the generations.  

“Opening our doors is also a great opportunity to show what life is really like in a modern care home; and we hope to change any preconceptions people might have while also showing everything Mountfitchet House has to offer. 

“We have got a fun day of activities planned and are really looking forward to getting behind Care Home Open Day on Saturday 18th June and welcoming the people of Stansted to be a part of it.” 

Visitors to the Care Home Open Day event at Mountfitchet House will also be able to pick up their copy of Care UK’s Eating as we Age.  The latest in a series of free guides for family carers, Eating as we age is packed with hints and tips for keeping healthy and hydrated in older age.  The guide can also be downloaded free at
