Over 400 people attend Home of Compassion Open Weekend

Friday 22nd April marked the beginning of our Open Weekend as Home of Compassion opened its doors to the public for the first time in over a decade. Over 400 people walked through the door and pre-open reservations numbers increased steadily across the weekend.

On Friday, healthcare professionals, local businesses and neighbours visited Home of Compassion. On arriving they were treated to a glass of Champagne and canapes which had been freshly produced by our Executive Chef and his team. Saturday and Sunday saw more of the local community, interested families and prospective residents alike coming to see how the restoration work in the now aptly named Charlotte Boyle Library had gone and how Caring Homes had managed to blend 17th Century architecture into a 21st Century care residence.

Guests were impressed that, whilst the aesthetic of the building and interiors are wonderful, the Home of Compassion has not lost sight of its roots. The Nursing and Care teams were all on hand to answer questions and Manager Avril Jones talked enthusiastically about the homes pending opening.
