Craig Healthcare will be marking National Care Home Open Day on Friday, June 17, by welcoming people to its Cramlington House facility in Cramlington.

Craig Healthcare is a specialist provider in dementia care and will show what kind of care they provide and how they operate.

Lucy Craig, managing director, said: “Cramlington House, which has been purpose-built to provide dementia care, is brightly coloured and has its own onsite beauty parlour and hairdressers.

“Most people won’t be aware of just how many great activities our homes provide.”

“Activities range from visiting places of interest, trips to the local coffee shop or pub, tea dances with the Alzheimer’s Society, clubs at the local church, film shows, arts and crafts, keep fit classes, bingo, dominoes and frequent singing and dancing sessions.

“We want to invite families and their friends into both our homes on National Care Home Open Day to show the type of care, support and attention each and every resident receives 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
