Meadowbrook Care Home in Oswestry pulled out all the stops at their recent Summer fete which saw a record number of visitors come to the home as part of their Care Home Open Day celebrations.
Vanessa Platt, Home Manager, told us: “The event was held on Saturday 18th June and was very well attended. We had stalls and games ranging from book stalls to Tin Can Alley, White Elephants to Play Your Cards Right. We also had demonstrations from MD Warriors Karate, Border Counties Gymnastics and Whitchurch Dog Display Team.
“We had some vintage cars for people to come and take their photos with, and for a bit of extra fun put various team members in the stocks, ready to receive a wet sponge to the face. It’s safe to say, not everyone enjoyed that bit. It was a lovely family event catering to everyone’s – young and old – needs. I want to say a huge thank you for everyone who organised and everyone who attended the event. Thanks to your hard work and generosity we raised over £643 for the residents fund. This will go towards providing entertainment, trips out and other special experiences for our residents.”
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Events like the one at Holbeche House Care Home will help to create 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.
