Festive family fun at Great Oaks’ Community Open Day

Great Oaks, a new purpose-built 80-bed care home in Bournemouth, is spreading Christmas cheer this December by hosting a festive family-friendly open day for the local community on Friday, December 1 from 10am-3pm.


During the day, guests and Great Oaks’ residents will be visited by Mr Frosty the reindeer from 1pm and pupils from Kinson Primary School will be joining in with the festivities by singing Christmas carols from 12 pm. Homemade treats, prepared by Great Oaks’ team of professional chefs will also be on offer to all who attend.


Ian MacDonald, care home manager, will be on-hand to talk to visitors at the open day to answer any questions they have. There is also the opportunity to meet the care home team including nurses and carers, and take a tour around the new state-of-the-art facilities of the building and garden.


The luxurious care home opened in June following a successful Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection and is welcoming residents to the home for residential, nursing, dementia and palliative care. Short-term respite stays and day breaks are also offered at the home, which is discreetly located within a private woodland setting on Poole Lane. 

Ian MacDonald, manager of Great Oaks, said: “This is the perfect way to officially kick off the festive season by having a mince pie and enjoying some carols while getting the chance to see first-hand the beautiful setting of Great Oaks. Guests can find out more about our highest standard of twenty-four hour, personalised care that our skilled team provides.


“We are looking forward to meeting some new faces at our Community Open Day.  It will also be lovely to welcome back some familiar faces from Kinson Primary School, since we hosted a time capsule burial event with them in September.”
