National Care Home Open Day: time to get involved for 2015

Care Forum Wales is supporting National Care Home Open Day 2015 on June 19 which this year has twin themes of The Arts and Valuing Staff (you can see how CFW members celebrated the day in 2014 here).

CFW's  policy adviser, Melanie Minty, said: "Please register your care home now to take part in 2015 as the day is nearly upon us. This applies even if you took part last year.

"This is a UK-wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Many Care Forum Wales members were among the thousands of care homes across the UK who took part last year, welcoming the public and arranging events and activities to help create lasting links between care home residents and their local communities."

Melanie (pictured below) added: "We are also using social media to promote the Day and we urge members to use the resources provided on the NCHOD website and relevant hashtag for Twitter to help spread the word too."

The organisers of National Care Home Open Day said: "This is all about showing people what excellent care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of local communities, developing relationships across the generations.

"We're making some positive noise - and we want you to be part of it!"
