Care Home Open Day & Ascot Event

The Ashton Care Home is opening its doors to the local community as part of a national Care Home Open Day and Royal Ascot next week.

Our specialist residential, nursing, dementia and respite care home, in John Street, will join thousands of other care homes across the country that are taking part in the UK-wide initiative on Friday, June 17.

The idea behind Care Home Open Day is to encourage local people to visit care homes in the community and work together to build long lasting relationships.

The Ashton, a private care home with 72 bedroom suites, has already become a community hub in Hinckley since it opened in 2014. It has built links with local groups and residents and regularly arranges free events and activities at the care home that are open to the public.

The suggested theme in 2016 for Care Home Open Day, in its fourth year, is ‘celebration’ so it is perfect timing for the annual racing at Royal Ascot and The Ashton's Ladies Day the day before on Thursday, June 16. Both events are open to members of the public every day between 1.30pm and 4.30pm.

Tracy Heyes, care home manager at The Ashton, said:  “We are very much looking forward to celebrating Care Home Open Day which is all about connecting people. It is important to show people that care homes in every community are filled with some truly remarkable characters and run by special people who really do care.

“The Ashton has already built a fabulous rapport with the local community in Hinckley so we hope to see some familiar faces and new ones too on this special Open Day. 

"The day after our female residents - or the Ladies of The Ashton as we like to call them - will be getting into the spirit of Royal Ascot with fancy hats and fascinators and we will be serving up some delicious cupcakes and bucks fizz too! It's going to be so much fun! The Ladies Day is also open to the people of Hinckley so they can get a real taste of what life is like at The Ashton.”
