Over 100 of our inspectors and staff are already signed up to join in the celebration of this year’s National Care Home Open Day on Friday 20 June.

With just over two weeks to go, National Care Home Open Day offers an ideal opportunity for you to find out more about your local care home and see for yourself what good care can look like.

From cream teas and musical entertainment – to summer BBQs and sporting pursuits – many care homes are offering a wide range of diverse activities to ensure everyone has a fun-filled day.

CQC's Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care, Andrea Sutcliffe, said: “Whether you are looking at care options for a family member or just want to make a connection with the community – the open day is a great opportunity to visit your local care home. People can see what goes on, get involved and gain a better understanding of these really important services.

“From 30 minutes, to a couple of hours – or even a whole afternoon – I really would like to encourage everyone to take some time out and join in the celebrations.

"I am delighted that so many of our inspectors and staff have already signed up to take part. Adult social care is the biggest service we regulate and it's great we can be a part of celebrating the good care we see so often.

“I hope National Care Home Open Day will help to break down barriers between care homes and the community and forge lasting links for the future which will benefit everyone."
