Celebrations at Beechwood Park for Care Home Open Week

Lord Provost of Clackmannanshire with residents and tea, at Beechwood Park Care Home celebrating Care Home Open Week 2023

The residents and team at Beechwood Park Care Home enjoyed a wonderful week of celebrations as part of Care Home Open Week.

The Lord Provost of Clackmannanshire Council Donald Balsillie joined us at the beginning of the week to officially open National Care Home Open Week 2023 at our home.

We enjoyed hot beverages and some beautifully made scones and cakes from our wonderful chefs. We would like to extend our thanks to Donald for attending and also to our former neighbour of one of our residents, Stuart, for coming along and playing the bagpipes.

During the week we welcomed the Alloa Ballet Company to the home to dance for our residents. Everyone enjoyed watching the talented dancers and also getting up for a boogie! Then later in the week Scott and Mai from Cycling Without Age Scotland took us out on a trip to Gartmorn Dam in the Tri Shaws.

We would like to thank both the Alloa Ballet Company and Cycling Without Age Scotland for taking time out of their week to make it special for our residents and team.

Finally we held our monthly coffee morning, which is open to our local community. Thank you to everyone who came along and to our Administrator Michael, who was kind enough to sing for everyone. It was a fantastic morning with music, refreshments and cakes made by our wonderful chefs again.

At Aria Care we are honoured to be a Founding Patron of Championing Social Care and are actively supporting and participating in this year’s Care Home Open Week, an initiative that connects communities and delivers a positive impact in the social care sector.

Caroline Roberts, CEO, Aria Care, shares, “We are thrilled to be a Founder Patron for Championing Social Care, and to further our ongoing commitment to supporting the social care sector.

“We firmly believe that everyone should have access to high-quality care, and we are dedicated to supporting the sector in improving standards and promoting well-being. Our participation in initiatives like Championing Social Care is a testament to this commitment.

“Our goal is to leave a lasting impact that will benefit future generations by advocating for the benefits of pursuing a career in the care sector.

“Working in care is not just a job, it’s a calling. It requires compassion, dedication, and a true desire to make a difference in the lives of others. Raising awareness about the rewards of a career in care can help attract more people to this fulfilling sector, where they can find purpose in helping others and making a positive impact on society”.
