Residents and staff at Crossways in Vale Royal welcomed members of the local community to a summer fayre held at the CLS-run care home in celebration of National Care Home Open Day – an event that invites the public to find out what life in a care home is really like.
Not letting torrential rain typical of the Great British Summer dampen their spirits, staff and residents at Crossways invited the public to enjoy a number of classic fayre stalls, including, among others, a tombola, a raffle and a homemade cake stand.
National Care Home Open Day is an annual event that sees care homes from across the country throw open their doors for members of the public to come and find out about life in a care home.
In keeping with this year’s theme of ‘celebration’, the home was decorated with bunting and balloons, and visitors were treated to afternoon tea and live entertainment while learning about how rewarding and enjoyable life in a care home can be.
Commenting on the day, Crossways Home Manager, Paul Bowman, remarked: “We had a great turn-out to our summer fayre, and both residents and visitors to the home thoroughly enjoyed the celebrations. The event was a great way to show the public just one of the many varied activities and events we hold for our residents throughout the year, and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped make the day a success.”
Crossways is a purpose-built home approximately one mile from Northwich town centre. The home was recently rated ‘Good’ following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
