Residents from a care home in Godalming and their guests will enjoy the glitz and glamour of a stage show as part of a nationwide celebration.
Anchor’s Eastlake care home in Nightingale Road will be participating in Care Home Open Day (CHOD) on Friday 28 June, along with thousands of care homes across the country.
This year’s theme is the arts, and Eastlake has invited Ben and the Showgirls to entertain the residents and their guests before some of them take part in crafts sessions, either painting jars or making shopping bags and trolley bags for walking frames which they can take away with them.
Other residents will be spending the morning cooking biscuits which will be served to the guests on the day. Guests will also be invited to join the residents for lunch.
Home Manager Linda Grout said: “People don’t realise how we transform older people’s lives for the better here so Care Home Open Day is the chance for people to find out what a care home is really like.
“For many people, the first time they come into contact with the care sector is when their relative can’t cope living in their home. Our doors are always open to people but we hope CHOD will be the opportunity the local community to visit us so we can answer their questions.
“They can also join in the fun activities on the day which we regularly organise for our residents to improve their mental and physical well-being.”
