Next Friday, Care Homes across the country will be opening their doors to visitors as part of the Care Home Open Day.
The open day on Friday 19 June will be the third time this annual event will be held. Care Homes are encouraging local people to learn more about the homes and to meet their residents.
Thousands of care homes across the UK take part each year, keeping care homes and their residents connected to the local community.
In Thurrock, everyone is welcome to attend the home at Bradd Close, South Ockendon to see the facilities and meet the residents. The home will be open between 12 and 4pm, and refreshments will be provided for residents. Visit the Care Home Open day website for more information.
