Barton Lodge Celebrates Indian Culture

We are so lucky to have such diverse cultures at Barton Lodge, and it was wonderful to unite earlier this year in celebration of the vibrant Indian culture.

We are thrilled our residents enjoyed a day filled with joy, celebration and discovery, embracing the rich diversity within our community.

Our incredible staff created a fun action-packed day for our residents. We spent the morning learning about Indian traditions, festivals, family life and food. It was lovely to see our passionate and enthusiastic staff really captivating our residents’ attention, as they thoroughly enjoyed the day.

We treated our lovely residents to an exquisite Indian feast, of beef or vegetable curry, with rice and poppadoms, while everyone shared their experiences and cherished memories of holidays spent in India.

The staff made the day really special by making table decorations for our Indian lunch, including elephant table mats with intricate designs. It was fantastic to hear our residents share tales of their times in India and was wonderful reminiscence therapy.

In the afternoon our amazing staff dressed up in their saris, dressing some of our residents as well, before dancing around the home to show everyone.

We’re delighted to have received such amazing feedback from our residents, with Mary remarking: “What beautiful and colourful outfits the girls were wearing. So much effort they all made for us to enjoy” and Rosemary adding: “It was like being on holiday in India.”

The day left a lasting impression on our residents, with Jean reflecting: “It was something very different to see and learn” and Geoff concluding: “We have learnt so much about Indian culture today. It’s been amazing!”

Our Activities Coordinators, Jenny and Barbara said: “The staff showed the residents how extremely proud they are of their country and culture, we all had a lovely day. It was fantastic to share this experience together. Barton Lodge really is an inclusive and incredible place to work.”
