Residents and relatives at HC-One’s Brooklands Care Home in Grimsby, celebrated the fifth annual Care Home Open Day on 16th June.
Care Home Open Day is a national event that gives local people the opportunity to learn more about the services at the heart of their community. This year’s theme was ‘HC-One Big Lunch’, as they partnered with the UK’s biggest annual neighbourly get together. Residents, their loved ones and neighbours of the home celebrated with ten pin bowling overseen by our regular, visiting games-master, Neil Worrell. Next, at lunchtime, a number of relatives and visitors joined us for a barbecue in the garden; where a selection of barbecue food, baked potatoes and salads were served; along with some delicious summer drinks, such as Sangria and Pimms. This was followed by an excellent afternoon of entertainment with local singer, Roger Beard
The family of HC-One homes across the UK took part in activities throughout the day, which comes shortly after HC-One celebrated its own 5th anniversary last month and relaunched as ‘HC-One The Kind Care Company’, bringing to focus their ethos of delivering the kindest care. Brooklands Care Home manager Melanie Walton said:
Today was a fantastic day for all residents, neighbours and loved ones to join in with the celebrations of Care Home Open Day and I would like to extend a warm thank you to everyone who came and supported the event.
