about the open day

Care Home Open Day is now in its 7th year. It encourages care 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.

This year’s theme is Linking Communities and hopes to create lasting links between care homes and their communities. Held for the first time on a weekend, we hope this will allow more people to step through the threshold of their local care home and discover the warmth and laughter waiting within.

What do we want to achieve?

Care Home Open Day is about connecting people!  We want to enrich the lives of the UK's care home residents by reminding people that care homes in every community are filled with unique, intelligent and charming characters and run by special people that really do care.


But don’t just take our word for it; we hope you will join us on Friday 28th June 2019! Just click here to find a care home near you and see what they’re planning for the big day! If you are a care home who wants to join in, then just click on the registration tab at the top of the home page and set up an account. 


In the meantime, we need everyone to get involved and help us by spreading the word - just Like us on Facebook or share with your friends on Twitter and together we’ll make a difference that lasts!
