A care home in Banbury is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
On Friday 28th June, from 10am-5pm, the team at Highmarket House on North Bar Place will be opening the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event to celebrate Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities.
This year’s theme celebrates the role of arts within care, which is important in encouraging residents’ self-expression, and helps to create meaningful experiences.
The team at Highmarket House has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun for all. Visitors can look forward to entertainment from a local ukulele band, and everyone can try their hand at knitting and hand-quilting in special workshops throughout the day.
Marisa Ramos, senior customer relations manager at Highmarket House, said: “Everyone at Highmarket House is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Banbury have always been so welcoming to us, it’s great to be able to give something back.
“This year’s theme of ‘Celebrating Arts in Care’ is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase all the brilliant activities we get up to on a daily basis here at Highmarket House. And we hope that lots of local people will join us on Friday 28th June.”
As part of a nationwide competition across Care UK homes, Highmarket House will be developing a work of art in the lead up to the open day, which will be showcased at the event.
