Care home fun had com­mu­nity at heart

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS -

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.”
