Care Home Open Day 21st April
Care Home Open Day is upon us yet again!
With CQC emphasis on community links, Care Home Open Day is a really important initiative that can help you shine at the next assessment. You can find out more about it from their website
In 2018, the official day is 21st April but you can choose a date that suits you. Member Able Care have chosen 5th April because it works better for them for their open day at HENGROVE LODGE CARE HOME: in Petherton Road. The idea behind the day is to encourage local people to visit care homes in their community and to work together to develop better relationships.
This important connection is something that Hengrove Lodge has nurtured and the home is already acting as a community hub, including regular visits from the Stay and Play Group from Southern Links Children’s Centre.
As part of the Care Home Open Day 2018 and working with LinkAge, Hengrove Lodge is hosting an afternoon with tea and cakes and the opportunity to get involved in flower arranging with Don Gay’s Florist who are based nearby. Members of Christ Church Coffee Group have been invited to join in along with residents and their families. You can see the full programme for the day under our page on the website by visiting www.carehomeopenday.org.uk.
Sam Hawker, AbleCare Homes Director said: "This is a great way to show the excellent services on offer and the fantastic work that goes on at Hengrove Lodge. Some people still have misconceptions about care homes so we are keen to dispel any myths and for people to come and have a look around, meet the staff and our residents."
