Residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Plymouth will don their finest frocks and crowns for a royal themed Care Home Open Day celebration next week.
On Saturday 21 April, from 2pm to 4pm, people from the local community are invited to Furzehatt Residential and Nursing Home on Furzehatt Road, to enjoy a very special combined celebration.
The residents and team will host a royal themed high tea party to mark Care Home Open Day, which also coincides with The Queen’s 92nd birthday. There will be finger sandwiches, scrumptious sweet treats and homemade cream teas, with live entertainment to enjoy throughout.
Speaking of the festivities, home manager Kim Newitt said: “We are so excited to be celebrating this special day with a spectacular party and are looking forward to welcoming both new and familiar faces along to celebrate with our team and residents.”
“Our residents have been really excited, writing and sending a birthday card to The Queen – who knows, we may even get a reply!”
Saturday 21 April marks the sixth annual Care Home Open Day, when homes nationwide open their doors and welcome people to share a special day with their teams and residents, forging lasting links with their local communities.
The theme for this year is linking communities, so if anyone would be interested in attending, please drop in anytime from 2pm to 4pm.
Care Home Open Day comes as a double celebration for Sanctuary Care, which is marking its 20 year anniversary of delivering care to its residents.
