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

How can you get involved?

Our care home open days could not happen without our fantastic volunteers and generous care home managers. We’re always on the look out for an extra pair of helping hands and new care homes to join the open day. If you’d like to get involved, register your care home below.
