Heatherbrook Care Home

A care home opened its doors and welcomed guests to its summer garden party.

Heatherbrook Care Home, Como Street, Romford, introduced residents to visitors at the weekend, with the aim of challenging perceptions of care homes by connecting residents with the community.

At the garden party, everyone enjoyed a delicious barbecue as well as entertainment from singer Johnny Lawrence.

Home manager at Heatherbrook Olubunmi Oduweku said: “Our doors are always open, but the care home open day is a particular highlight each year, as it is a brilliant opportunity to showcase our home and celebrate with visitors, residents and colleagues alike.

“This year’s event was a real success, and everyone enjoyed getting involved in the activities and building links within the local community.

“We hope that all our visitors enjoyed themselves as much as we did, and look forward to welcoming them back to the home for events in the future.”
