On Saturday 21st April, Quantum Care homes across Hertfordshire, Befordshire and Essex will be opening their doors to the public for National Care Home Open Day!
This event is held every year and is a fantastic way of bringing care homes together with their local communities. Each home taking part will have staff on hand to give tours of the home as well as staff and residents happy to chat with their visitors and give you a much better picture of what life is really like in a care home. Different activities, entertainment and refreshment will be available in all of our homes from taster sessions of our new Oomph Activity Programme to virtual reality experiences! Families are very welcome with many homes putting on entertainment especially for children.
This is a brilliant opportunity to get to know your local care home so please take a look at the list below, find your local care home and come and see us for National Care Home Open Day! Alternatively, you can view and download a full list here: National Care Home Open Day Events.
Please note: a few of our care homes are holding their open day on either the 20th or 23rd April rather than the 21st, this is noted in the event descriptions for these homes
