This year’s Care Home Open Day will be held on 21st April 2018 and is all about Linking Communities. It's a chance to celebrate all the different people, cultures and relationships in your area and show your community that care homes are friendly, happy and exciting places to be. It’s a great way to get to know local organisations, schools and groups in your community and establish meaningful friendships along the way.
This year we have teamed up with CommonAge and NAPA and aligned Care Home Open Day with International Care Home Open Day. Both organisations make a huge difference to older people across the globe and have a wealth of excellent ideas to help you connect with care homes around the world and find out how they are celebrating across different nations.
A big part of Care Home Open Day is about bringing the community through your doors, so make sure to use our resources which will help you dream up exciting ideas to attract guests on the day and support you in writing to your local press to spread the word about your event. Remember – if the community doesn’t know about it, they can’t join you for the party!
We hope you have fun planning your event and look forward to celebrating Care Home Open Day with you in style!
