Deerswood Lodge in Crawley will be welcoming the local Brownies to support a residents’ coffee morning at 11am and Burleys Wood, also in Crawley, has organised a garden tea party from 2.30pm with guests including The Mayor of Crawley and Local MP, Henry Smith.

The aim of Care Home Open Day is to encourage local people to visit care homes in their communities and for care homes to take the opportunity to celebrate the positive relationships between residents and their families, friends and staff, as well as their neighbours in the surrounding area.

A full list of participating homes can be found at www.shaw.co.uk.

Kim Harris, operations Manager, said:

“As a part of the local community, we feel it’s important to open our doors and let people see what goes on at our care homes; not just the services we provide, but the community spirit that exists within the care home. I hope everyone who visits enjoys it and is able to celebrate with residents and staff.”

Shaw healthcare provides a spectrum of services from comprehensive care packages through to low level support in the community for older people and adults with physical, sensory or mental health support needs.

Care Home Open Day is a UK-wide initiative, supported by thousands of care homes and organisations including the Care Quality Commission and the Alzheimer’s Society. It was launched in 2009 and aims to create lasting links between care homes and the local community.
