Get involved in Care Home Day on 20 July
Join us on Wednesday 20 July for this largely online event which aims to raise the profile of care homes across Scotland. We hope to share good news stories to bust myths about care homes and recognise the vital role they play in supporting and caring for our care home residents across Scotland.
The theme of Care Home Day is ‘Care Home Voices’. We want to listen to the voices of care home staff, providers, managers, residents and relatives. We want to showcase the expertise of the care home workforce, and how they should be valued more. We want to highlight how care homes play a crucial role in the health and social care system and within their communities.
You can help us commemorate the day by sharing any good news stories, resources, projects blogs or an example of an innovative practice that highlights:
- The dedication and professionalism of care home workers
- The achievements of residents
- The innovation of care homes with different ideas or activities in place or planned for the future
- How care homes are valuable and important to society
If you aren’t on social media, please feel free to share any stories with us at [email protected].
With all the scrutiny and negative press that the care home sector has faced over the past few years, events like Care Home Day are a reminder of how important it is to share positive stories from social care and the care home sector. So please share and get involved on Twitter using the hashtags #carehomeday22 and #carehomevoices.
