The day, which aims to highlight the fantastic care that happens across the UK every day, saw residents, relatives and staff joined by past Mayor of Ellesmere Port, Councillor Brian Jones to celebrate the special day with a 1950s theme.
The home was decorated specially with colourful bunting for the occasion, and attendees satisfied their sweet teeth with the abundance of cakes and treats on offer. Entertainment on the day was provided by a local singer, who sang classic hits which are favourites of the residents.
Residents were delighted to meet Councillor Jones, who toured the home upon arrival, and took time to chat to each resident before getting involved in the activities on offer.
Guests were also able to sample the home’s new range of nutritional menus, which were created to get residents eating more healthy and nutritious meals.
Aaron Court Home Manager, Gloria Gleeson, commented:
“We had a lovely time celebrating National Care Home Open Day. It was a great opportunity for friends and relatives come together, taste our new food options and enjoy some fun activities.
“Ensuring residents continue to lead a full and fulfilling life in the community is very important to us at Aaron Court and New Century Care.”
Care Home Open Day is an international initiative which sees thousands of care homes across the UK holding special activities that create strong and meaningful link across the generations, between Residents and their local communities.
Aaron Court is part of New Century Care, and provides compassionate expert care for elderly residents in a homely setting.
