6 Jul 2015

Young and old came together to mark this year’s Care Home Open Day (June 19th) for a day of street fun at Howdon Care Centre, Howdon.

Residents and visitors thoroughly enjoyed the street party with lots of fun activities, great food, tombola, stalls and entertainment and it seemed the best setting to recognise an award recently presented to volunteer Mary Baitey, seen here in the centre of the photograph.

Ruth Todd, Manager at the home, said: “We always love welcoming visitors and it was great that so many people came along to celebrate the day with us. We see Care Home Open Day as a way of showing people what life is like in a care home, and to see behind the doors for themselves.

Care Home Open Day is celebrated by care homes across the country. It aims to encourage stronger relationships between care homes and the local community. It also provides a chance for people to come and see what life inside a home is really like and get to know some of the fascinating people who live there.
