Rather royal celebrations
Residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Exeter will don their finest frocks and handmade crowns for a royal themed Care Home Open Day next week.
On Saturday 21 April, people from the local community are invited to Greenslades Nursing Home on Willeys Avenue, between 2.30pm and 5pm, to enjoy a very special combined celebration.
There will be a royal themed high tea party to mark Care Home Open Day, which coincides with The Queen’s 92nd birthday.
There will be sweet treats fit for a Queen, with scrumptious cream teas and a variety of mouth-watering home-made cakes, plus live entertainment to enjoy throughout.
Speaking of the festivities, home manager Tselane Selokoma 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.”
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 between 2.30pm and 5pm.
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.
The address for those wishing to attend is Willeys Avenue, Exeter, Devon EX2 8BE.
