Heaton Care Homes Open Day

Sharing is caring!

I visited Newlands residential Care home in Heaton Moor to celebrate National Care Home Open Day with residents on June 21.

Along with thousands of residential care homes around the country, Newlands opened its doors with the aim of creating lasting links between care home residents and their local community. Newlands put on a rich variety of events which residents, their families and guests all enjoyed together, including games, musical entertainment, dancing – plus strawberry cream teas and cakes of course.

I met many residents and their families when I dropped in to support the event, including 92 year old Lillian Buchanan, who is pictured here.
