Every year, care homes are encouraged to open their doors and build ‘friendships’ in their local community. This year’s theme is ‘friendship’ and is partnered with The Big Lunch, the UK’s annual get together for neighbours.
Care homes are organising a ‘Big Lunch’ and inviting people from their local communities to join them. It’s a great way to build relationships within communities and encourage people who access care and support to engage with new people. It’s also a great opportunity to advertise showcase the job opportunities in social care.
More information on how to organise a ‘Big Lunch’ and register your event is available from the Care Home Open Day website. You can download leaflets and flyers to promote your event.
Care homes do great work all year round, and this is one day to showcase this in local communities. Make sure to share your news and photos. Mention us on Twitter @NISCC_Comms and @CareHomeOpenDay Share with #CHOD2017 or #carehomeopenday
Email photos and news to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share on our Facebook and e-News.
