Care Home Open Day at Cathkin House

About Care Home Open Day at Cathkin House

On Friday 28th June, from 1.45pm-4pm, the team at Cathkin House on Glasgow Road will be opening the doors to the care home for a free family-friendly event to celebrate Care Home Open Day, a countrywide initiative to create lasting relationships between care homes and their local communities.

This year’s theme celebrates the role of arts within care, which is important in encouraging residents’ self-expression, and helps to create meaningful experiences.

The team at Cathkin House has organised an art-themed party to celebrate the open day, with entertainment, activities and creative fun for all. Visitors can look forward to a gallery of artwork from local artists, live entertainment from local man Douglas to get everyone in the party spirit, and a tasty afternoon tea prepared specially by the home’s head chef.

Lynn Rossi, home manager at Cathkin House, said: “Creative activities are such an important part of life for people in care, whether it’s painting to help enhance hand-eye coordination, or just reminiscing by putting on some music – the arts are a vital part of life here at Cathkin House.

“We’re so excited to be hosting our Care Home Open Day event this month. We had a brilliant time when we did this last year so it made sense for us to open our doors to the local people of East Kilbride again and show them just how much fun you can have in a care home.”


As part of a nationwide competition across Care UK homes, Cathkin House will be developing a work of art in the lead up to the open day, which will be showcased at the event.

For more information on Care Home Open Day at Cathkin House, please call home manager, Lynn Rossi, on 0333 434 3011, or email lynn.rossi@careuk.com
