Laganvale Care Home in Moira were flying high, when they launched their sponsored balloons as part of their celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
Shily Paul, Home Manager, said: “We wanted to do something a little bit different for Care Home Open Day. We invited people in for tea and scones in the morning and asked them to sponsor a balloon. All the donations were put into the Resident’s Fund so we can provide our residents with some special experiences later in the year.
“Everyone had a lovely day, although a few were a little sad to see their balloon disappear into the horizon.”
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 Laganvale 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.
