On Friday 17th June 2016, residents, relatives and visitors to Carnalea Care Home in Bangor were transported around the world, as everyone indulged in various traditional dishes from across the glove.
Josette Fernandez, Home Manager, said: “We offered a taste of different foods brought in by the team to share with residents, relatives, colleagues and visitors. Dishes and afternoon treats from the Philippines, India, Romania, Zambia, Thailand, Poland, Italy and Portugal were introduced that afternoon. The all-time favourite like Scotch eggs, Scottish sausage, Irish potato farls, Irish stew, English pudding and Guinness wheaten bread were also showcased and enjoyed. It was a Friday of food, family and array of music entertainment. To add some spice, some of the team served the food in their national dress which was a bit of a change to the day to day uniforms.”
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Events like the one at Carnalea Care Home will help to create lasting links between the residents and their local community.
Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.
