Slavic Celebrations at Plymouth Care Home

Residents at a Plymouth care home enjoyed a taste of eastern European life to mark World Diversity Day.

The award-winning activities team at Parkwood House arranged a Slavic party, with food, music and cultural insights from Poland, Slovakia and Bulgaria.

Parkwood Manager, Lorna Smith, said: “I have the privilege to work with such a committed team, rich in cultural diversity. They chose to celebrate this with the residents and have organised the whole event, travelling the extra mile to enhance our residents’ emotional wellbeing and bring joy into their lives. It was a great day, enjoyed by all, and I can honestly say that by the end of it, we were all fat and full. It felt so good to be able to stage something like this for the first time since the pandemic began. The only thing missing was their family and friends. We are greatly looking forward to when they can once again join in with our celebrations.“
