The team at Snowdrop House welcomed the people of Ware to enjoy Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative set up to develop lasting relationships between care homes and local communities, and to dispel common myths about care home life.
Residents and visitors started the celebrations with a day of musical entertainment, first from local pianist, John Smith, followed by a performance by former West End star and current Ware Councillor, Joanne Belsey.
The sun was shining on day two of the celebrations, as guests enjoyed ‘a day at the beach,’ with activities including sandcastle making, a fancy dress competition, and a fish and chips supper, prepared specially by the home’s chefs.
There was also an opportunity to enjoy a magic show from the Magic Monks, and get up close to a variety of animals from Paradise Wildlife including, a ferret and a 65-year-old tortoise. The weekend ended on a high with a musical performance from local musician, Ian Goddard, who performed some of the residents’ favourite songs from the 1960s.
Cheryl Forshaw, home manager at Snowdrop House said: “We had a fantastic day celebrating Care Home Open Day. We were so fortunate that the sun was shining for a beach bonanza – it really was like a day at the seaside!
“Care Home Open Day is all about building bridges with our local community, and showing what life in a care home is really like. We would like to say a big thank you to the people of Ware for celebrating with us.”
