Birmingham Based Care Home Celebrates Chinese New Year with Special Themed Dinner

A Birmingham based care home celebrated the arrival of the Chinese New Year with a special themed dinner menu.

MHA Herondale and Kingfisher House prepared a beautiful lunch menu for their residents and included plenty of classics such as beef in black bean sauce, egg fried rice and prawn toast.

The home offers nursing and specialist nursing dementia care, with en suite facilities, for up to 79 people.

The meals were all prepared and cooked fresh in house by the kitchen staff.

Ryan Cheslin, activity coordinator said: “We celebrate the Chinese New Year every year and the residents love it.

“We do have one Chinese resident with us and she plays a huge part in making sure we celebrate the Chinese New Year together.

“They all really enjoyed the food and we were very happy to see all the plates clean when they had finished.

“Usually we would decorate the home with lanterns and other bits, but unfortunately this time around we were unable to do this due to the covid outbreak.

“We also decorate the home with whichever animal is associated with that year, and hopefully next year we will be able to do this again.

“I want to thank all the staff members who prepared the food and helped in making sure we had an amazing time and most importantly helped in making sure our residents had a good time.”
