Four Seasons Care Homes across the UK pulled out all of the stops to celebrate National Care Home Open Day.
Events varied from home to home, but they included an Alice in Wonderland inspired Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, animal inspired fun with domestic and more exotic animals coming in to celebrate with the residents, to a right royal birthday bash, as the homes embraced the theme of celebration.
Here at Four Seasons, we’ve been celebrating all of our residents turning 90 this year as part of Care Home Open Day. The residents shared their stories with us. Find out what our residents had to say here: ‘Residents celebrate turning 90 by sharing their stories with us’.
Tim Hammond, CEO at Four Seasons, said: “Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Our homes across the country held a variety of events creating lasting links between the residents and their local community.
“Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.
“All of the people in our homes have different personalities, so it’s been nice to see how these personalities were reflected in the events that were held. The important part is that everyone had a fantastic day. I can’t wait to see what the homes have planned next year.”
