Join Darlington Court for fun from around the world this Care Home Open Day

Home news


Darlington Court is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.

On Friday 20th April, from 11am-4pm, the team at Care UK’s Darlington Court 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.

Darlington Court has organised a Commonwealth themed party to celebrate the open day. There will be homemade bunting inspired by countries from around the Commonwealth decorating the home, and visitors can look forward to live entertainment starting from 11am. There will also be a Commonwealth-inspired buffet lunch. 

The home will receive a special visit from Animal Magic, who will be bringing a variety of animal friends including meerkats, wallabies, parrots, rabbits and guinea pigs. Complimentary refreshments will be served throughout the day, and visitors will get a change to meet Darlington Court’s friendly team.

Nikki Burke, home manager at Darlington Court, said: “Care Home Open Day is about connecting people and enriching the lives of residents by building lasting relationships with the local community that spans the generations.  

“Residents have enjoyed taking inspiration from countries across the Commonwealth and creating bunting ready to decorate the home on Care Home Open Day. We cannot wait to open our doors to showcase the residents’ homemade decorations and everything that Darlington Court has to offer. We have planned a fun day for all the family and a warm welcome awaits the people of Rustington.”
