A CARE and residential home is taking part in a national open day later this month.
Grosvenor Park in Brookfield Road will open its doors to members of the public on Friday June 20 as part of a country-wide attempt to encourage local people to visit care homes in their neighbourhood – with the aim of creating better relationships between the home and the community.
It is something staff at Grosvenor Park has been actively trying since opening in June 1986 and the home is already acting as a community hub, including housing a chess club and regular Parkinsons group meetings.
Jackie O’Callaghan, home manager, said: “This is a great way to showcase the excellent services on offer and the fantastic work that goes on at Grosvenor Park.
“Some people still have misconceptions about care homes so we are keen to dispel any myths that are out there and for people to come and have a look around.”
