Get your shorts on for Care Home Open Week

Care Home Open Week will take place this year from Monday 26 June to Sunday 2 July and to celebrate a ‘Great British Care Cycle Relay’ will travel the length of the country, visiting care homes along the way.

Cyclists will fly the flag of campaign organisers Championing Social Care, which is a volunteer-led group of social care leaders. Cyclists will pass on a travelling ‘baton’ between care homes throughout the week as they head towards their destination in London. Care teams, suppliers, friends and supporters, along with some able residents are being invited to take part in the relay.  

The final day of Care Home Open Week, Sunday 2 July, will be dedicated to Thank You Day! Care homes will be invited to say a great big thank you to the unsung carers and heroes in care.

According to the organisers, some 4,000+ homes are expected to participate this year. Around 40 MPs are already planning visits to local care homes.

Standout events at care homes this year include events from Music for Dementia and Eden Project Communities.

Sponsors include: Virgin MoneyCivitas Investment Management, and Christie & Co 

Eight in ten care homes who participated in Care Home Open Week 2021 agreed that the event helped promote their facilities, activities and services, while 68 per cent said that the event encouraged greater community engagement and volunteering.
