Care Home Open Day 26th June 2020

Care homes up and down the country are preparing for Care Home Open Day on 26 June for what will be the eighth year in a row.
 
The theme this year is music which encompasses all manner of music, arts, innovation and technology. Care Home Open Day is bursting with ideas as to how to mark the occasion brimming with links to music organisations.  There is something for everyone allowing care homes to get creative on a small or big scale.
 
Care homes offer so much these days, did you know that almost 44% of care homes have pubs, or private drinking facility in them? Many more have in house choirs, art galleries, post offices, hairdressers and much more, all open to the public.
 
Hilary Woodhead, Executive Director at National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) says:
“Care Home Open Day is the perfect opportunity to make friends with a local care home. I think that many people will be amazed at what’s on offer; every home and every day is different. Come and find out for yourself on 26 June”.
 
Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England, says:
“Now well established, Care Home Open Day, is a real marker in the calendar. Care homes really are the hub of their communities, let’s keep it that way and continue to connect. The immense innovation throughout the sector needs to be showcased and enjoyed. There is a link between music therapy and dementia and this needs to be made more widely known; Care Home Open Day is the perfect vehicle to do so”. 
 
Vic Rayner, Chief Executive of National Care Forum (NCF) says:
“I’m really excited about Care Home Open Day! There are so many creative ways in which music has become centre stage within homes. Get planning now – and get your care home firmly on the map on this June”.
 
Care Home Open Day, in partnership with Care England, National Activity Providers Association (NAPA) and National Care Forum (NCF), will take place on 26 June 2020, for more information please visit Click here to find out more
