PEOPLE in West Drayton are invited to take a closer look at The Burroughs care home this Friday from 3-6pm when it opens its doors as part of National Care Home Open Day.

The Burroughs is run by health and social care firm Care UK. Visitors to the home in Mill Road can take part in a 1950s-themed afternoon and enjoy live music and a cream tea, in support of Age UK.

Refreshments and tours of the home will be available throughout the day.

Josephine Thomas, home manager, said: “Some people still have misconceptions about care homes, and it is therefore necessary to dispel any myths and to demystify everyday life in a care home.”
