June 27th to July 3rd is Championing Social Care Open Week, a week in which care homes open their doors to give people a glimpse of life inside. Many people do not know much about social care and can find themselves overwhelmed by the enormity of the decisions that need to be made when the times comes.
We are opening our doors in style by hosting an outdoor cinema event, we will be showing the movie Grease on the big screen in our wonderful garden and offering those who attend a chance to look around Marham House and chat to the team, to answer questions and give an insight into the life of both residents and team members.
There is much excitement brewing over this event, we want to give visitors the full Rydell High experience complete with pink ladies and a 50s theme. We have already got to work on the props and decorations. Grease was such an iconic movie; we all have memories of it and something to say about it. It’s a real feel-good film. We have whiled away our afternoons painting signs and sharing our memories of our trips to the cinema, we discussed our favourite characters, the costumes, and the fact that nobody thought it strange that Olivia Newton John was still at high school at the age of 30. It didn’t matter, Grease fever swept the country, and we enjoyed every minute of it.
Our cinema event will be held on Wednesday 29th June from 1pm until 7pm, if you’d like to have a look inside Marham house or find out a bit about a career in social care, or even if you just want to relive the 50s and stare longingly at Danny Zuko, do come along.
