Residents at a care home in Harrow marked the festival of light, Diwali, with an afternoon celebrating Hindu culture.
Residents at Care UK’s Buchanan Court, on Sudbury Hill, celebrated the festival with an Indian inspired lunch and a special performance from team members.
As part of the celebrations, team members dressed in traditional Punjabi clothes to perform an Indian inspired dance routine for the residents to enjoy. Joining the celebrations were local children from St George’s Primary School, who helped paint pots and flowers as part of the celebrations.
Also keen to dress for the occasion, residents tried on traditional Punjabi scarves and learned more about the history of the festival while enjoying Indian cuisine prepared by the Home’s Head Chef, which included a resident favourite – samosas.
Esther Adams, Home Manager at Buchanan Court, said: “Everyone had a de-light-ful day celebrating Diwali, learning more about Indian traditions and trying various delicacies.
“At Buchanan Court, we are committed to ensuring the home is a welcoming and supportive place for everyone, where different cultures and interests are regularly celebrated through memorable activities which promote positive wellbeing.
“The team also had a fantastic time rehearsing and performing a traditional Indian dance – they even got some of the residents to join in!”
Buchanan Court provides full-time residential and dementia care, as well as short-term respite care. Designed to enable its residents to live enjoyable and fulfilling lives, the care home has its very own bar and hair salon, and there is plenty of space both in and outdoors for relaxation and recreation.
