Supporting dementia sufferers: National Care Home Open Day

On Friday (20th June) I visited Windmill Manor (Hurst Green) and Amherst (Horley) care homes, in support of National Care Home Open Day. First held in 2013, this national event involved thousands of UK care homes opening their doors to the public to bring residents and their local communities closer together and change perceptions of care homes for good. Having opened Windmill Manor in 2010, I was delighted to return to see the progress made over the last four years. The care home is a ‘Memory Lane’ community, providing a range of cutting-edge innovations to make life easier for residents affected by dementia. Amherst care home in Horley,
