Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities.
Thousands of care homes across the UK take part each year, welcoming the public and arranging events and activities that help to create lasting links between care home residents and their local communities.
This is all about showing people what excellent care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of local communities, developing relationships across the generations.
We're making some positive noise - and we want you to be part of it!
This year we are once again partnering with The Big Lunch, which is the UK's annual get together for neighbours. Every year in June since the idea began in 2009, millions of people stop what they're doing and get together with neighbours in a nationwide act of community and friendship. In partnering with National Care Home Open Day in 2017, The Big Lunch is aiming to support care homes all over the country to open their doors and invite the community in.
Organising a Big Lunch shouldn't be overly complicated, or require a lot of resources or money: it can be as big or as small as you like. By making use of what you already have and doing a little research to see what others can share, you'd be surprised at what you can all bring to the table!
