Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

Res­i­dents, fam­i­lies, friends and staff cel­e­brated an open day held at Beech­wood Care Home in Wishaw.

Care Home Open Day is a UK wide ini­tia­tive, which con­nects care homes with com­mu­ni­ties, with the aim of show­ing peo­ple the ex­cel­lent ser­vices that are avail­able at the heart of their com­mu­nity.

Cathy Togneri, man­ager of the home, in­vited MP Marion Fel­lows and Claire Beau from Alzheimer Scot­land to the event to pro­mote the de­vel­op­ment of last­ing relationships, and to en­cour­age in­ter­gen­er­a­tional rap­port, in line with the‘Friend­ship’theme for 2017.

Guests were pre­sented with a glass of cham­pagne on ar­rival and shown to the din­ing room where staff had made canapes, and a cake to com­mem­o­rate Na­tional Care Home Week. En­ter­tain­ment was in full swing in each unit of the home as staff had singers, ma­gi­cians and an ac­cor­dion­ist to per­form.

Ms Togneri said“Care Home Open Day gives us the op­por­tu­nity to show­case the home and lets peo­ple talk to the team.”
