From 10am until 4pm, the team at St Vincent’s 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.
In honour of The Queen’s 90th birthday, there will be right royal celebration at St Vincent’s House on Friday, with screenings of the coronation throughout the day. Residents and visitors will be able to enjoy high tea in the garden, as well as entertainment from a traditional choir and a performance from a 1940s-inspired entertainer. Representatives from the Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising will also be dropping-by to take everyone on a trip down memory lane.
All those who visit St. Vincent’s House on the day can meet residents and the Care UK team, and take a tour of the care home.
Adeyemi Salawu, home manager at St Vincent’s 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 St Vincent’s 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 Friday 17th June and welcoming the people of Hammersmith to be a part of it.”
Visitors to the Care Home Open Day event at St Vincent’s 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.
