Our care homes in Malvern invited the community to join them on Saturday 10 June for an afternoon of family-friendly fun.
Staff, volunteers and residents at our Davenham, Bradbury Court and Perrins House care homes welcomed guests to admire the beautiful gardens, have afternoon tea in a vintage tea room, listen to live music and enjoy a hog roast.
Equally importantly, there were opportunities to be shown around the three care homes, plus stalls providing information about working or volunteering at them.
This special event was part of our ongoing commitment to providing meaningful activities, encouraging friendships across the generations and placing our care homes at the heart of their local communities. It also helped mark our ongoing support for Care Home Open Day, an annual initiative which sees thousands of care homes across the country open their doors to the public to showcase the excellent services being provided by dedicated teams of staff.
Twelve-year-old Holly is a regular volunteer helper at Bradbury Court, which includes helping with arts and crafts sessions for residents. She told us: “I enjoy going to Bradbury Court because I feel happy when I see residents smiling and I enjoy spending time with them – finding out about their lives and listening to their stories. I like making a difference to their lives.”
James Wadlow, General Manager of the site, said: “Our open day was a great success with a great turnout, which residents, my colleagues and I all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you to everyone who came and joined us.”
