Staff and residents at Parley Place in West Parley welcomed in the Year of the Rabbit with a day of celebrations and activities.
Inspired by Chinese culture and traditions, the home was decorated with hanging red lanterns. Residents learnt all about the traditions and superstitions of Chinese New Year. Chef Hayley cooked up an oriental tasting afternoon for the residents, family and staff to try different dishes.
Tracey Aldin, General Manager of Barchester’s Parley Place said:
“We have had a brilliant day, the home looks absolutely wonderful decorated all in red and we all had such fun finding out what animal we are, the associated traits and reading each other’s horoscopes. The residents loved tasting the different food.”
Linda, a resident at Parley Place care home said:
“I loved the music, the vibrant colours and the delicious food we have tried. A person born in the Year of the Rabbit is said to be kind, confident and strong. I find it fascinating to learn all about different traditions.”
