Residents over at Aston House
in Middlesex, which provides residential memory and nursing dementia care, have been enjoying Chinese New Year celebrations with Colleagues.
To mark the coming of the year of the tiger, Residents and Colleagues have been celebrating at Aston House with a range of different activities. This included trying a range of different Chinese dishes, such as, hot and sour vegetable soup, spring rolls and vegetable noodles. Residents commented how nice the food was, and how different it was to their usual meals. One Resident went on to say, “I really enjoyed the food, I’ve never had a soup quite like that”.
But the highlight of the day came when Eden, the Wellbeing Coordinator offered to paint anybody’s faces if they would like. The tiger was of course quite a popular choice amongst the Residents, which lifted everybody around the home. One Resident said, “We all need to be brave and have courage like the tiger”.
Further celebrations took place in the lounge with music, dancing and even some singing together, it really boosted the mood around the home and will surely be a memorable day for all involved. Residents expressed how much they enjoyed having a dance, singing, the music, getting their faces painted and of course, the quality of the food! Evelyn, a Resident at Aston House said, “May the New Year bring all of you joy and happiness”.
Seema, the Home Manager speaking afterwards said, “it was delightful to see our Residents enjoy themselves, despite outer situations”.
