Hallmark Care Homes will support Care Home Open Week and Championing Social Care on Thursday 1st July by hosting a live virtual event where attendees can experience a taste of all they have to offer residents.
The special event will be hosted by the Executive Chairman of Hallmark and Care England, Avnish Goyal and will be live-streamed from Henley Manor, the care group’s £15 million facility in Henley on Thames.
It is being held in association with Care Home Open Week which runs from 28th June to 4th July.
Care Home Open Week aims to connect care homes with their local communities, challenge misconceptions about care and remind everyone that the unique individuals who live in care homes are supported by dedicated and professional caring teams.
During the fun and informative event, attendees can get an insight into what it is like to live in one of Hallmark’s multi-award-winning care homes. They’ll get to meet some of their experienced team members and trusted partners and find out what they do differently at the family-run care group.
The event will be split into a morning and afternoon session commencing at 11am and 2pm.
The afternoon session will feature a live panel discussion with some surprise guests, debating ‘How do we restore confidence in the social care sector following the pandemic?’
Throughout the day, team members and residents at each Hallmark home will be taking part in a Danceathon to raise money for Musica Music and Wellbeing, a social enterprise that supports people living with dementia and their caregivers to use music in their daily lives.
The Hallmark Team hopes to raise £1,000 which will enable Musica to deliver their online music activity library, Musica Connect, free of charge to individuals living with dementia.
Avnish Goyal said: “I am delighted to be hosting this event, which will showcase everything that is great about our caring communities!
“Our teams have worked hard to put together a full and engaging schedule of activities for attendees and after a difficult year for the sector, I cannot wait to make some positive noise as part of our extensive Care Home Open Week celebrations.”
