Celebrate Care Home Week with us! 11-15 June 2018

Care Home Week: 11-15 June 2018

Throughout this week, we will be celebrating and raising awareness of Scotland’s care homes, the individuals who live and work in them, their role in local communities and the opportunities care homes offer to enhance lives and wellbeing for a wide range of people.

We’ll be celebrating different elements of care home life each day from 11-15 June:
• Monday 11 June – Busting myths
• Tuesday 12 June – Human rights
• Wednesday 13 June – Workforce
• Thursday 14 June – Change & adaptation
• Friday 15 June – Engagement

This week is an opportunity to share good news stories and promote the positive things that services and their local communities are doing.

Scottish Care is seeking your help, whether you are part of a care home or work in the social care sector more generally, to enable us to tell these good news stories. We are looking for the following:
• Stories/examples of projects/activities your care home has undertaken (including photos, quotes, stories etc)
• Positive stories/blogs/examples from residents, care staff, volunteers and other members of the care home community
• Information about any events, activities or resources that could be promoted and shared as part of the week
• Encourage engagement between your care home and local community throughout the week, either informally or through events
• If you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #carehomeweek

If you are able to provide any of the requested materials, we would really appreciate receiving these by Friday 1 June. Please send any blogs or examples of good news stories relating to care homes via email to [email protected]

If you have any questions relating to this, or wish to discuss an idea for Care Home Week, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Kat – [email protected]
