Residents from a care home in Walton on Thames will be joined by schoolchildren for a special arts class as part of a nationwide celebration of the care sector.
Anchor’s Glendale care home in Ambleside Avenue will be participating in Care Home Open Day (CHOD) on Friday 28 June, along with thousands of care homes across the country.
This year’s theme is the arts, and residents from Glendale and 12 pupils from Walton School will working on a poster of Walton Bridge which will be displayed in the home.
The home organises many activities for its residents and recently resident Pamela Pearce (pictured), 80, attended The Great Weybridge Cake Off with Manager Sunita Aucharaz. The home won the first prize and the award was presented by former This Morning TV presenter Ruth Langsford.
Sunita said: “People don’t realise how we transform older people’s lives for the better here so Care Home Open Day is the chance for people to find out what a care home is really like.
“For many people, the first time they come into contact with the care sector is when their relative can’t cope living in their home. Our doors are always open to people but we hope CHOD will be the opportunity the local community to visit us so we can answer their questions.
“They can also join in the fun activities on the day which we regularly organise for our residents to improve their mental and physical well-being.”
