Care home fun had community at heart
YOUNG and old came together on Care Home Open Day for a day of community fun at Adlington Manor.
The home opted for a fun 1950’s theme, with staff and residents getting into the mood of the day in 50’s fancy dress complete with rock ‘n’ roll music playing from a record player.
The dining room was converted into a 1950’s diner for the fabulous 50’s lunch.
The day was topped off with entertainment from the talented Rebecca Paris, with staff, residents and families all singing along and toe tapping the afternoon away.
Care Home Open Day, on June 19, was celebrated by care homes across the country.
It aims to encourage stronger relationships between care homes and the local community.
It also provides a chance for people to come and see what life inside a home is really like and get to know some of the fascinating people who live there.
Fiona Gough, general manager at the home, said: “It was great that so many people came along to celebrate National Care Home Open Day with us and the entertainment was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
“Adlington Manor staff and residents love a good celebration but it’s always extra special when the local community get involved too.”
