Care Home Open Day



All of our homes are opening their doors again for this year’s Care Home Open Day, and you’re invited!

This year it is coinciding with the Queen’s Birthday, so with an extra touch of royalty, we are all excited to host a very special day.

Every year, care homes across the country open their doors to the local community for this fun event to showcase what goes on in the UK’s many superb care homes and to connect with the local community across all generations.

At Canford Healthcare we have care homes across the South East, and with a series of activities that will keep all the family entertained, there is something for everyone. Find your nearest Care Home below, and we hope to see you there!
