Care Home Open Day is taking place for the 5th time on 16th June 2017.
Care Home Open Day’s emphasis this year is on the importance of connecting with local communities, developing lasting relationships and encouraging intergenerational rapport, the theme for this year is be “Friendship” and Highbury House Nursing Home will be celebrating Care Home Open Day in conjunction with The Big Lunch.
The Big Lunch, part of the Eden Project in Cornwall is an annual event, and aims to get as many people as possible to share lunch together in an act of friendship that will encourage communities to connect and help to prevent isolation amongst those who may be living alone. It’s the perfect recipe for having fun with your neighbours, feeding community spirit and helping to build stronger neighbourhood connections – so fits in nicely with the Care Home Open Day ethos!
Care homes around the country are being encouraged to celebrate friendships that have developed between residents, families, friends and staff, as well as with their neighbours, to reinforce how we are an integral part of their local community.
Highbury House would like to have a full house on that day, so if you know someone who would like to have lunch with us in the spirit of friendship and community please let us know.
