Three Croydon care homes are inviting local people to join in their family-friendly celebrations at this year's open day.

Addington Heights, Heavers Court and Langley Oaks are inviting members of the public to join residents on June 28, hosting art-themed parties with entertainment, activities and creative fun.

This year’s theme celebrates the role of arts within care, which encourages residents’ self-expression, helping to create meaningful and memorable experiences.

Visitors can look forward to polishing their creative skills during arts and crafts sessions at all three homes, and will also have the opportunity to enjoy a poetry reading at Langley Oaks.

Guests at Addington Heights will also be joined by pupils from Fairchild Primary School for a special performance.

Natasha Leslie, home manager at Heavers Court, said: “Care Home Open Day is such a wonderful opportunity for our home to connect with the local community and show what it’s really like to live in a care home.

"We’re counting down the days until we welcome the people of Croydon to Heavers Court.”

Catherine Faboya, home manager at Addington Heights, added: “The residents are really excited to showcase their artistic skills, and we’re all particularly looking forward to seeing what the pupils from Fairchild Primary School have in store.

"I know the residents and community are going to have a great time!”

As part of a nationwide competition across Care UK homes, Addington Heights, Heavers Court and Langley Oaks, will each be developing works of art in the lead up to the open day, which will be showcased at the events.

Addington Heights, on Milne Park West, will be open from 11am-5pm, Heavers Court, on Selhurst Road, will be open from 1pm-4pm, and Langley Oaks, on Langley Oaks Avenue, will be open from 2pm-5pm.

The three care homes have been designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence, incorporating space for hobby and leisure activities as well as care.
