Care homes across the UK are taking part in Care Home Open Day 2018 this Saturday.

Beginning with Dovehaven Care Homes who have continuously nurtured relationships within their community since the business was started over 30 years ago.
As part of the Care Home Open Day their home will be showcasing their home to friends and family of The Brunswick in Southport. Afternoon tea will also be on offer along with performances from The Bluebirds, a stylish vocal duo who’ll send you back to the days of swing and boogie-woogie.
