HC-One care homes across the United Kingdom are delighted to be welcoming their local communities to join them for Care Home Open Week 2024, taking place from 24th –  30th June 2024, with HC-One’s main celebration events taking place during Care Home Open Weekend (28th – 30th June).

HC-One’s chosen theme for this year’s Care Home Open Week celebrations will be honoured by ‘dancing together through the decades’. Throughout the week, the homes will enjoy a variety of fun-filled activities.

Care Home Open Week is a national event hosted by Championing Social Care, designed to connect care homes with their local communities. The week provides care homes with the opportunity to showcase their range of services, provide tours of their facilities, and highlight the activities that are offered to residents. The event is also a reminder to the homes’ neighbours that they are there if they need support.

HC-One is delighted to be working closely with Championing Social Care for Care Home Open Week and, this year, Acorn Meadow Care Home in Northwich, Cheshire, will be taking part in Championing Social Care’s Great British Care Cycle Relay on Monday 24th June, where participants will be cycling 300-miles and visiting care homes across the country – north to south – from 24th – 28th June. A travelling ‘baton’ will pass between care homes throughout the week before it reaches its final landmark destination in London on the 28th June.

 

Residents and colleagues across all 259 HC-One’s care homes are looking forward to opening their doors to celebrate the week together with friends, family, community groups, local authority representatives, local dignitaries, and members of the community.

HC-One homes have worked tirelessly on their plans for the celebratory week, ranging from arranging dance off challenges, silent discos, kindness chain challenges, and arts and crafts sessions. There will also be competitions, money raising for local charities, music and entertainment, refreshments, and a variety of other activities, with residents taking a central role in the preparations and celebrations.

 

Visitors will enjoy learning from colleagues in the homes about what a rewarding career in care looks like. They will also find out about opportunities for community engagement and about the volunteering roles on offer designed to support their local care community.

James Tugendhat, HC-One’s Chief Executive Officer, said:

“We are delighted to be able to bring everyone together to celebrate Care Home Open Week 2024. HC-One’s ‘dancing together through the decades’ theme for Care Home Open Week is all about bringing the community together.

“Our homes are looking forward to welcoming members of the local community to join in with their celebrations. The week provides a great opportunity to reinforce the great connection between our residents and homes, and their communities.

 

“Our homes can also showcase their extensive facilities, activities, and services they have to offer, as well as help people to understand more about what a rewarding career in care looks like, which will help support our mission to be the first-choice care provider in each of the communities that we serve.”
