Glorious sunshine graced the Costa Del Hingham on Friday when Hassingham House Care Centre marked the National Care Home Open Day with a beach-themed party!

“We had a wonderful afternoon, with the sun shining, ice-creams, Punch and Judy and lots of laughs,” comments Jayne Smith, PA to the centre manager.  “It became a real community event, with children from Hingham Primary School and their families coming along to share the day with staff, residents and visitors.”

Anyone who missed the open day at Hassingham House but still wants to look around is welcome to visit at any other time.  “We welcome visitors to come and look around at any time without appointment as part of our open ethos so that people can get a feel for what the home is like on a ‘normal’ day,” comments centre manager, Sally Lee.  “Potential residents’ families should never feel as though a home is making an extra special effort when they are expecting visitors, standards should always be at a very high level.”

Hassingham House is situated on Hardingham Street in Hingham, with 44 bedrooms offering a friendly, family environment for both younger people recovering from trauma – including a specialist 24 hour neurological and spinal injury nursing care – and elderly residents who require nursing care.  Hassingham House is part of the Forest Healthcare group of homes, which includes 12 individual homes throughout the South East of England.  For more information on Hassingham House, please visit or call 08444 725 173.
