Care Home Open Day 2018
The annual Care Home Open Day 2018 is on the 21stApril this year and is a fantastic opportunity for people to engage with their community and see how Care Homes can be friendly, happy places to be. Will you be visiting your local care home?
Insequa are fully supportive of the initiative, which is all about connecting people. This is not only a chance for people to visit care homes, to potentially scout out the best local to them, but is a great opportunity for people in the homes to stay connected with their community.
This year’s theme is specifically about linking communities. 2018 is the first year when the event is held on a weekend, and hopefully will allow more people to get involved and visit their local care home. Why don’t you put aside some time this weekend to visit your local care home and get a first-hand view of the fantastic work these vital community hubs do?
The initiative is a great opportunity to break down the perceived barriers and stereotypes associated with care homes, and to really understand these vibrant and fascinating places. Care homes should be viewed as community assets, fully integrated with the world around them – not isolated and disconnected places to be avoided. Events like Care Home Open Day 2018 serve to plug care homes in to the wider community, enhancing the quality of life of residents and spreading the word about what positive places they are.
There are many Outstanding Care Homes out there, taking exemplary care of their residents. Achieving a CQC Outstanding status is hard won, and when a care home is awarded this prized rating, it sets them apart from the rest.
