A care home in Stratford-upon-Avon is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
On Friday 28th June, from 10.30am-4pm, the team at Ambleside on Evesham Road 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 Ambleside has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun for all. Visitors can look forward to a special gallery of residents’ artwork, and enjoy taking part in creative art sessions. There will also be poetry sessions, including Shakespeare readings, and dancing, to get everyone in the party spirit.
Julia Joy, home manager at Ambleside, said: “Care Home Open Day is such a wonderful opportunity for our home to connect with the local community and show what it’s really like to live in a care home. We’re counting down the days until we welcome the people of Stratford-upon-Avon into Ambleside.
“The residents are really excited to showcase their artistic skills, and we’re all particularly looking forward to the creative art sessions. I know the residents and community are going to have a great time!”
As part of a nationwide competition across Care UK homes, Ambleside will be developing a work of art in the lead up to the open day, which will be showcased at the event.
Ambleside is a state-of-the-art care home which provides full-time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short-term respite care. Designed to enable residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has its very own cinema, coffee shop and hair salon, with plenty of space both indoors and out for relaxation and recreation.
