Augusta Court care home in Chichester will be opening its doors to members of the local community this week as part of a nationwide celebration of the care sector.
Anchor’s Augusta Court care home in Winterbourne Road will be participating in Care Home Open Day on Friday 16 June, along with thousands of care homes across the country.
Care Home Open Day is an annual event aimed at encouraging members of the public to see the high quality care in their local care homes.
This year Anchor is using Care Home Open Day to also mark the Great Get Together organised by Jo Cox Foundation’s to bring communities together. Labour MP Ms Cox, who was killed last year, rejected divisive politics and campaigned to bring different communities together.
Residents and staff at Augusta Court will be celebrating the theme of friendship by inviting old friends and new into the home. The new Mayor of Chichester will be visiting us for the first time. We will be having live entertainment with singing and dancing at 3pm.
The occasion will also be a chance to celebrate the good work achieved by home’s staff in the past year.
Home Manager Samantha Kewell said: “We hold a host of activities throughout the year to keep residents mentally and physically stimulated. Many of the events involve bringing the outside community into the home. Over the next few months, Augusta Court will be organising a Summer Fair and a Rock and Roll day.
“Care Home Open Day is part of this packed activities programme. We’re really proud of what we have achieved over the last year. We wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate the fantastic life our residents have here.”
