Brook House’s Week of Celebration for Care Home Open Week

Brook House Care Home residents enjoying a 'Ritz' inspired afternoon tea as part of our celebrations for Care Home Open Week 2023.

Brook House Care Home enjoyed a week of celebrations as part of Care Home Open Week. The residents and team started the week off with a trip to their local Saracens Head Bar & Hotel.

Rachel and her team looked after us and even endured our singing! On our way back we took the opportunity to speak to passers-by about our first charity quiz night, which was held later in the week. We had a lovely afternoon listening to live music from ‘Chris the piano man’.

The following day our residents went on a trip to ‘The Ritz’ for afternoon tea. Our fantastic Chef and his team made us an assortment of cucumber sandwiches, tomato sandwiches, egg sandwiches and cheese scones. The scones were served with cream and jam and we even had some flapjack and fairy cakes to accompany the tea and coffee.

At Brook House we are very fortunate to have wonderful carers, especially Grace. Her manicures are legendary amongst the ladies at the home. Grace is always in high demand when she does her ‘Nails with Grace’.

Towards the end of the week, we all enjoyed the sounds of the 1950s and 1960s from the brilliant Diverse Sounds UK. Their disco entertained our residents, who really enjoyed singing and dancing along to the music.

To finish our wonderful week of activity for Care Home Open Week, we held our inaugural charity quiz night in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society. We had an amazing turn out, with members of the local community joining our residents and their families and our team, to make it an extremely fun night.

We would like to thank all the team for always working so hard to ensure our residents continue to live their best life at a home full of happiness and laughter with care from the heart. A special thank you to our Health and Wellbeing Team of Martin and Jenny for all their hard work, not just during Care Home Open Week, but all the time. Finally a thank you to everyone who joined us and hosted us during the week.

“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.
