Residents and staff from Eastlake care home in Godalming will enjoy a variety of activities associated with the theme of the arts at their open day on 19 June, National Care Home Open Day 2015.
Staff at Eastlake, on Nightingale Road have organised a singer, a belly dancer and a cream tea dance for residents as part of this annual celebration.
The home is also using the event to invite members of the local community to look around and find out more about how a care home is run and careers in the care sector.
Research carried out by Anchor highlighted that England and Wales face a short fall of 718,000 care workers by 2025, and an unprecedented number of men are needed to bridge the gap.
Eastlake manager Linda Grout said that because of this shortfall we need to act now, for the future. Linda said: “This years’ care home open day will be a lot of fun for our residents, and I hope that people will visit Eastlake to see first-hand what a great home we have and what a great team of staff we have at Eastlake.
“Meaningful activities are always at the heart of our home, this is a key part of a residents’ day as it stimulates them both mentally and physically.
“At Eastlake we are looking for kind hearted people who want to help improve and to make a difference to someone’s life. If you think you are that person please come along and have a chat about the career opportunities we have available.”
“We are also using this opportunity to thank the great staff that we already have here at Eastlake, they are committed and passionate about what they do. We have a variety of staff, some have worked here for more than 20 years, they all have different skills and the team work is fantastic.”
