Fold Housing Association's Seven Oaks Housing-with-Care scheme is taking part in the national Care Home Open Day by inviting the public in to their creative themed event at Crescent Link, Derry-Londonderry, at 2.00pm to 5.00pm on Friday 19 June 2015.
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities, welcoming the public and arranging events and activities that help to create lasting links between care home residents and their local communities.
Mrs Toni Strawbridge, Registered Manager at Seven Oaks said, "The Open Day is all about showing people what excellent care homes, such as Seven Oaks, are really about and how we can be at the centre of local communities, developing relationships across the generations.
She added, This important connection is something that the team at Seven Oaks has nurtured since opening in June 2001. The scheme already acts as a community hub, hosts a summer and winter songs programme, a Body Wisdom Project and Ti Chi classes, facilitates placements for Health and Social care students and information visits for local and overseas nursing students
As part of the Care Home Open day 2015, Seven Oaks is hosting arts and crafts, pamper sessions, cake decoration activities and a vintage tea party. Everyone is welcome to drop in to meet staff and residents, see the excellent facilities and service on offer and hear first hand what we are all about at Seven Oaks. We're keen to dispel any myths about care homes and Care Home Open Day gives us another opportunity to remind people that care homes in every community are filled with unique, intelligent and charming characters, and run by special people that really do care.
If you would like to visit Fold's Seven Oaks Housing-with-Care Scheme on 19 June please feel free to just drop in.
