Waypoints Invites You to Our Beautiful Homes on Care Home Open Day

“Care Home Open Day is an important opportunity to celebrate the unwavering and dedicated efforts of the people who work in the sector, and to invite our local communities to experience first-hand the contribution care professionals make to supporting older and vulnerable people.”

Minister for Community and Social Care Alistair Burt MP



On National Care Home Open Day (Friday 16th June), Waypoints Upton and Waypoints Plymouth invite you to our free Dementia Information Mornings, where you will

  • find out more about living well with dementia
  • be given refreshments including homemade cake
  • offered a guided tour around our home....

For those of you in the Dorset area who are unable to make it on Friday 16th June, we are also holding the same free event at our home in Verwood on Saturday 17th June, followed by a fundraising barbeque in aid of our new sensory room – all welcome!
