On Friday 28th of June Avonbourne Care Centre will be celebrating Care Home Open day. Welcoming the community in to our home. This year we will be looking at the role of art in the lives of our residents. We can't wait to show you just how amazing the art is at Avonbourne Care Centre!
We have a day jam packed full of entertainment for everyone! From 10:00am onwards there will be all sorts of things for you to come a long and enjoy. We will be starting out with an interactive art session with the local nursery, who always bring joy to our residents. The Nursery, residents, staff and you will be creating paintings using paint, paper plates, fabric, plastic cups and any other items we can get their hands on.
These amazing works of art will go on display with some fantastic photos taken by the residents in an art display. You will be able to purchase these amazing pieces of art, the funds raised will go towards more activities and outings for the residents. The fun doesn’t stop there; In the afternoon at 2:00pm we will be welcoming our residents favourite musical entertainer, Brian Slade, playing hits through out the ages. This is a firm favourite of our residents who enjoy a good dance! The Photos and Paintings will be available for purchase from Lunch time. Tea, coffee and cake will be avalible through out the day.
At Avonbourne Care Centre we know that art plays a massive role enriching the lives of our residents. We have seen first hand our residents' faces light up watching plays, listening to music, planting, arranging flowers and just creating art together. We want to bust myths about the lives of those living in Care Homes; our residents have lived amazing lives and those lives don’t stop when they come to live with us.
Come visit us from 10:00am on Friday the 28th of June! Staff will be on hand to answer questions and we are more then happy to show you round the home at any piont during the day. We look forward to seeing you there!
