Celebrating the role of art in care!
This year's Care Home Open Day will be Friday 28th June 2019.
Care Home Open Day is now in its 7th year. This year’s theme is celebrating the role of Arts in Care. It encourages homes to open their doors to celebrate a different theme each year, with a few key values at its heart: friendship, making connections and celebrating older and vulnerable people.
Show that your care home is a creative community
“We have learned so much from the previous seven years of Care Home Open Day and 2019 is well on its way to being a fantastic celebration marking the importance of the arts in care”.
"The creative arts play a key role in encouraging self expression, sharing emotions and reminding everyone that many residents have talents that come to the fore when given the right environment to flourish. We would also like to see community based arts groups visiting the homes on the Open Day to share their skills and experiences too”.
