Hallmark Care Homes will support Care Home Open Week and Championing Social Care with a live virtual event on Thursday, 1 July.
The special event, which is being run in association with Care Home Open Week from 28 June to 4 July, will be hosted by the Executive Chairman of Hallmark and Care England, Avnish Goyal, and will be live-streamed from Henley Manor, the care group’s £15 million facility in Henley on Thames.
Avnish said: “I am delighted to be hosting this event, which will showcase everything that is great about our caring communities!
“Our teams have worked hard to put together a full and engaging schedule of activities for attendees and after a difficult year for the sector, I cannot wait to make some positive noise as part of our extensive Care Home Open Week celebrations.”
The event will be split into a morning and afternoon session commencing at 11am and 2pm.
The afternoon session will feature a live panel discussion with some surprise guests, debating ‘How do we restore confidence in the social care sector following the pandemic?’
Throughout the day, team members and residents at each Hallmark home will be taking part in a Danceathon to raise money for Musica Music and Wellbeing, a social enterprise that supports people living with dementia and their caregivers to use music in their daily lives.
The Hallmark Team hopes to raise £1,000 which will enable Musica to deliver their online music activity library, Musica Connect, free of charge to individuals living with dementia.
