Staff and residents at Brook House Nursing Home in Wembley recently enjoyed an Indian dance performance by local dancers visiting from the Sai Temple. Invited in by the homes’ activities co-ordinator Alison Khurana, the residents were shown classical Indian dance forms including Kuchipudi, performed with music that featured violin, flute and the tambura instruments, and Bharatanatyam, a traditional dance which combines music, beat and dance as a form of storytelling.
A popular activity at Brook House, the dancers are regulars at the nursing home having performed previously for Diwali and other East Indian celebrations.
The hospitality team at the care home provide a selection of sweet and savoury snacks on the day, including hand cut fruits and vegetables, as well as a spread of cakes and bakes for all to enjoy.
General Manager, John Gilfillan of Brook House Nursing Home, said: “The residents at our home had a wonderful time watching the performance and we learnt a lot of new moves! We like to make our lifestyle enrichment programme at Brook House diverse and interesting, and always listen to what our residents enjoy as part of our efforts to celebrate life every day. If anyone ever wants to stop in for a lovely afternoon and learn more about what we have to offer, or would like to be contribute to our entertainment programme, we’d love to have you join us.”
