Open day gives flavour of homes

A GROUP of leading care providers and associations has announced plans for a country-wide care home open day to be held next Friday, June 21.

The idea behind the day will be to encourage people from the local community to go into their local care homes and make contact with the residents and find out more about the services on offer.

It is hoped that as many care homes in the UK as possible will join in with the event, which is open to every home, regardless of whether it is council-run or independent.

The participating homes are free to put on any activities that they think will attract members of their local community into their homes. The English Community Care Association, which has organised the event, is looking forward to dispelling some of the myths about residential care and showing local people what excellent services are at the heart of their community.

The ECCA, which covers groups in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, works to ensure that care services are commissioned fairly, efficiently and on a properly funded basis, to meet the true costs of providing appropriate care.
