Hallmark to host virtual event to give real flavour of care homes
Hallmark Care Homes will support Care Home Open Week and Championing Social Care on 1 July by hosting a live virtual event where attendees can experience a taste of what is offered to residents.
The event will be hosted by Hallmark executive chairman Avnish Goyal and will be live-streamed from Henley Manor, the care group’s £15m facility in Oxfordshire.
Attendees will get an insight into what it is like to live in one of the care provider’s homes and a chance to meet some of their experienced team members and trusted partners.
The event will be split into a morning and afternoon session commencing at 11am and 2pm.
The afternoon session will feature a live panel discussion with some surprise guests, debating ‘How do we restore confidence in the social care sector following the pandemic?’
Throughout the day, team members and residents at each Hallmark home will be taking part in a Danceathon to raise money for Musica Music and Wellbeing, a social enterprise that supports people living with dementia and their caregivers to use music in their daily lives.
The Hallmark Team hopes to raise £1,000, which will enable Musica to deliver their online music activity library, Musica Connect, free of charge to individuals living with dementia.
“Our teams have worked hard to put together a full and engaging schedule of activities for attendees and after a difficult year for the sector, I cannot wait to make some positive noise as part of our extensive Care Home Open Week celebrations,” said Goyal.

The virtual event is being held in association with Care Home Open Week, which runs from 28 June to 4 July.
Care Home Open Week aims 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.
