The National Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative that encourages care homes to open their doors to local communities. This annual event is growing in popularity with thousands of care homes now taking part.
The aim is to show people what excellent care homes are all about, and as part of this year’s event, Cotleigh Residential Care Home invited Councillors Karen McGowan and Bryan Lodge, along with MP Clive Betts to represent Birley Ward and celebrate all the good work the care home has been doing.
The event was organised by former Cotleigh volunteer Natasha Wilson and included a garden party, getting the residents involved in dancing to live music, and was also attended by members of Radio Sheffield. After a great day Karen McGowan said “We really value the work that these carers do for our ever growing elderly population – where would we be without them!”
