CareMalta has recently joined forces with the NCF (National Care Forum UK), ACSA (Aged and Community Services Australia) and the South African Care Forum to celebrate its Care Home Open Day, which took place on the 19 th of June 2015.
The main scope behind such an activity was to make a positive noise around the globe and to pass on a very strong message; that care homes can be inspiring places run by special people that really do care.
All the nine homes administered by CareMalta, were all open for the general public who had the opportunity to visit the residents and participate with them in various fun activities such as bingo games, cookery sessions, keep fit sessions, flower arrangement classes, tea parties and many more activities. The residents were also entertained with dancing and singing performances by popular Maltese entertainers.
The highlight of the Open Day was the opening of Ta’ Piju Bocci Club, which was inaugurated on the same day at Casa Arkati in Mosta by the Hon. Justyne Caruana, Parliamentary Secretary for Rights of Persons with Disability and Active Aging.
CareMalta’s C.E.O Mrs Natalie Briffa Farrugia, spoke about the importance that society should give to our old generation, by visiting them as often as possible and participate with them in daily activities organized by the respective homes. The success of such activities, she said can only be only accomplished with the participation of the residents’ families and friends.
