Tropical Tuesday hits two Irish Homes

Whiteabbey Care Home in Newtownabbey and The Court Care Home in Balleymoney have embraced a tropical twist as they celebrated Nutrition & Hydration week, this week.

Residents and teams from both homes enjoyed a selection of fruit and juices as they transported themselves onto a beach in Hawaii – complete with grass skirts and flower necklaces.

It wasn’t just the homes celebrating, Lindy Cullen, a guest speaker also embraced tropical Tuesday. Lindy visited the homes to provide the teams with some support regarding dysphagia – a disease which makes it difficult to swallow. She provided the props and encouraged everyone to get involved.

All in all everyone has a fantastic day – with even Whiteabbey’s Home Manager Alyeamma donning her grass skirt. It’s just a shame the weather wasn’t as tropical as the residents and the team would have liked.
