The latest statistics demonstrate that the 2015 Care Home Open Day (CHOD) was the largest ever event and caused a stir across Twitter with over 4000 care homes across the globe participating. There were over 800 more care homes joining in for 2015 compared to previous years, demonstrating the success, usefulness and value in such an event – a great success for the care home industry.
The purpose of CHOD is for people to learn more about the care homes in their communities and for the care home staff to demonstrate the fantastic work that they do. The theme for the 20 15 CHOD was ‘The Arts’ and ‘Valuing Staff’ – this theme really engaged the local community and visitors were welcomed into Sussex Grange for afternoon tea and cake.
The 2016 CHOD is scheduled for Friday 17th June 2016 and gives care homes the opportunity to make links with local communities and share the positive aspects to care homes. The Sussex Grange team are looking forward to taking part in next year’s CHOD and welcoming new visitors to our home.
