Rotherwood Healthcare's Shropshire care homes, Roden Hall and St George's Park in Telford, celebrated Care Home Open Week with their own lively Care Home Open Day events. These homes, renowned for their award-winning Residential, Nursing, and Dementia Care services, warmly welcomed visitors to experience their exceptional facilities, luxurious surroundings, and dedicated staff, providing a sense of reassurance and confidence in the quality of care.

The events featured complimentary refreshments, live entertainment, and guided tours, providing guests an inside look into daily life at the care homes. Roden Hall was transformed into a Hawaiian paradise, complete with "The Drunken Flamingo" tiki bar serving cocktails and mocktails amidst tropical décor and classic tunes by local pianist John Ellis, known as "The Piano Man". The day was capped off with a delightful BBQ in the garden, including a flavourful South African potato salad that delighted attendees. 

Meanwhile, St George's Park offered joyous entertainment with accordionist Robert Burton and magician Jack Dent, captivating residents, and guests alike with music, mystery, and laughter. The festivities culminated in a traditional fish and chip lunch, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
