Today (Wednesday 17 July) Scottish Care is organising the first Care Home Celebration Day in Scotland

This is largely an online, awareness raising week aimed at busting myths about and celebrating care homes in Scotland, the role they play in communities and telling the good news stories about those who live in, work in or engage with them.

Throughout the day, we will be celebrating the following elements of care home life and work:

  • Activity & wellbeing
  • Workforce
  • Technology
  • Palliative & end of life care
  • Reform & resources

You can follow the day's activity at www.scottishcare.org/care-home-celebration-day/

You can get involved on Twitter & LinkedIn using #carehomecelebration19

We're delighted to start the day with a message of support from the Cabinet Secretary for Health & Sport, Jeane Freeman MSP
