A care home in Larbert is inviting local people to join in its celebrations for Care Home Open Day.
On Friday 28th June, from 2pm-4pm, the team at Caledonian Court, on Victoria 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.
Caledonian Court has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day and life at the home, with entertainment, activities and creative fun. Residents’ decorated wall-hangings will also be displayed for visitors to enjoy.
Lorena Love, home manager at Caledonian Court, said: “Everyone at Caledonian Court is so excited to welcome the local community in for Care Home Open Day 2019. The people of Larbert 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 Caledonian Court, such as our arts and craft sessions. 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, Caledonian Court will be developing a work of art in the lead up to the open day, which will be showcased at the event.
Caledonian Court has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides nursing and specialist dementia care.
