Championing Social Care launches Care Home Open Week 2021
Championing Social Care has launched Care Home Open Week 2021 that will take place from 28 June to 4 July.
Care Home Open Week encourages care homes across the country to create a fun event that helps to showcase facilities, activities and services.
This year’s event will be adapted with a range of virtual activities to ensure that it is Covid-secure.
“The open week event is designed to enrich the lives of care home residents and local communities by reminding people that their local care homes are home to unique, intelligent and charming characters, and run by special people that do care,” said Mitesh Dhanak, founder of Precious Homes and part of the organising committee for the event.
“Sadly, the pandemic has made it difficult for care homes to remain at the heart of their communities, which has been frustrating and in many cases devastating for residents, family members and care providers,” he added.
This year’s event is being sponsored by Civitas Investment Management and Virgin Money.
Care homes can register their event today via the Championing Social Care website at https://championingsocialcare.org.uk/.
Those who register will receive an event pack as well as regular tips, updates and ideas. An event map of participating care homes will also be available online.
Championing Social Care is a volunteer-led group of leaders from across the social care sector.
The organisation is also responsible for organising the Care Sector Fundraising Ball, #SparkleForSocialCare and the Care Sector’s Got Talent events.
