Join us for our live virtual Care Home Open Week event on Thursday 1st July where you can experience a taste of Hallmark Care Homes!

About this event

Care Home Open Week is a national event hosted by Championing Social Care and this year runs from 28th June to 4th July.

Its purpose is to connect care homes with their local communities, challenge misconceptions about care and remind everyone that the unique individuals who live in care homes are supported by dedicated and professional caring teams.

During our special event on Thursday 1st July, you can get an insight into what it's like to live in one of our industry-leading care homes. The event, which will be hosted by our Founder and Executive Chair, Avnish Goyal, will be split into a morning and afternoon session and broadcasted live from our beautiful home, Henley Manor in Henley on Thames.
