What is ‘Care Home Open Day’ and why are we keen to take part?

Care Home Open  Daycare-home-open-day is a UK-wide initiative offering local communities the chance to visit care homes in their area, and get a feel for what it is like to be a resident at a care home.

With an ever-ageing population, many elderly people are dependent on carers or external services to ensure they have a good quality of life. Looking after elderly relatives can be extremely hard for people who are working and trying to sustain a normal working life. By finding support from care homes or carers, the pressure of caring for a loved one can be taken care of, and relations can enjoy visiting and spending quality time with their parent or relation without the stress of medication, washing, or general care.

The Care Home Open Day offers people across the UK the chance to visit care homes and experience what they can offer before committing to a contract. Care Home Open Day UK state “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.”

Sussex Grange will be taking part in the 2015 Care Home Open Day on 19th June 2015 and will be opening their doors so you can experience life at Sussex Grange and make enquiries about what we can offer you.  For more information please contact Tom at Sussex Grangeor call 01243 606262
