Tips to make your day a success!

spread the word

We're determined to build thousands of friendships, to change long-held perceptions, to create thousands of memories, and to have a fantastic day that will enrich lives!

For far too long the care home sector has been marred by the negative press generated by a small number of badly run homes, and we’re determined to show people what our care homes are really about.

We want the world to realise that care homes really can be inspiring places, full of unique, intelligent and charming characters, and run by special people that really do care.

So please get involved, register your home and then get everyone in your home involved to think of a great event to hold on the day.
