Open Day at Riverside Place for Care Home Open Week

Volunteers from Christchurch in Ware helping residents celebrate Care Home Open Week 2023 at Riverside Place Care Home

The residents and team at Riverside Place Care Home wanted to showcase their home, the talent within it and celebrate and thank all their volunteers, so they held a special Open Day as part of Care Home Open Week.

We were joined by family, friends and our wonderful volunteers from the local community. Our team of carers, chefs and wellbeing co-ordinators worked together to provide a musical afternoon with lots of the residents joining in.

We presented gifts as thanks to Johnny and Kevin who give up their free time to come into the home and sing for us. We also showed our appreciation for our friends from Christchurch in Ware, who come in every month to provide our residents with a church service and offer spiritual guidance.

On the day there was an Art Exhibition by our residents, Barbara and Milly, who are experts in watercolour and quilling. We also formally presented the prize to Barbara for winning the Aria Care Art Painting Competition.

Mary from Christchurch said “thank you so much for the lovely gift, we will share it out amongst the team. We love coming to Riverside Place“.

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”.
