Macclesfield Care Centre Celebrates Cultural Diversity With Month-Long Festivities

Rowans Care Centre in Macclesfield has concluded a vibrant month-long celebration of global cultures, with a ‘visit’ to Nigeria.

This special event took place throughout April and May, bringing the world to its residents through an array of cultural experiences using the care home’s newly refurbished facilities, including a spacious conservatory and a cosy ‘Reminiscence’ lounge.

The event featured an immersive cultural journey as residents ‘visited’ various countries including Nigeria, India, Zimbabwe, Romania, the Philippines, Malaysia, and even celebrated local English culture.

Each country was represented through food, dance, costume, and informative talks, largely thanks to the diverse backgrounds of the care support staff who passionately shared their heritage.

Sandra Senior, home manager at Rowans Care Centre, expressed her enthusiasm about the event, saying:
“It’s been a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the rich tapestry of cultures that our staff and residents represent. The joy and engagement from everyone involved have truly transformed our home into a bustling global village.”

Resident Jean Brammer shared their excitement about the celebration saying:
“It was like travelling the world without needing to pack a suitcase! The food was a highlight for me and the dances and the colourful costumes brought so much energy and happiness.”
