An air of celebration descended over Holbeche House Care Home in Kingswinford on Friday 17th June, as the home opened its doors and embraced Care Home Open Day.
Visitors and residents at Holbeche House were treated to an array of activities, including a ‘Bake Off’ style competition, Indian head massages and hand massages, games, a palm reader and a ‘Gardeners World’ best vegetable competition as part of the event. This was all accompanied by the soothing tones of a local clarinet band.
Janet Perrens, Home Manager, said: “Care Home Open Day gives us the opportunity to showcase the fantastic facilities we have here at Holbeche House. It also gives people the chance to come and talk to the team and the residents to get a feel of what life is like here.
“The event itself was a fantastic success and I want to thank Gavin Williamson MP for spending the day with us. Everyone loved the activities we put on, with people queuing for the massages. I think the most popular activity was the ‘Bake Off’ competition, but I think that was mainly due to the tasters being offered at the end.”
Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire said, “I was delighted to celebrate Care Home Open Day at Holbeche House in Himley. I think it is fantastic that care home events such as this work to connect residents to their local communities and enrich the lives of those 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.
