International month celebrations

July has proven to be a very busy month with a high percentage of our residents participating in our international month celebrations. Our care centre was duly dressed in beautiful coloured flags of the world and those countries that we had chosen to talk about. The scene was set for a most enjoyable month!

July 1st: Mexico was chosen as one of the countries for international month. Flags, banners, and Mexican music followed by residents and staff enjoying a Mexican pre dinner snack. On the Saturday afternoon this was followed by a quiz which was very well attended by residents and family. A lot of laughter could be heard during the quiz. A typical Mexican meal – nachos, Mexican spiced beef mince, sour cream, avocado – six residents helped to prepare the meal.

July 4th: We celebrated American Independence Day with flags and banners together with a traditional afternoon tea of hot dogs with American mustard and tomato sauce. A DVD on the Boston Tea Party was held where popcorn and a variety of drinks was enjoyed.

July 6th: We also chose Scotland, and a billboard was made using Scottish names, towns, food, sayings and songs. It was a wonderful display and a good discussion took place around the topics.

July 14th: We celebrated Bastille Day with handmade flags and banners, croissants and four different types of coffee. This was followed by a French quiz and songs. The croissants were much enjoyed by residents and family members.

July 22nd: Russia was the country chosen to celebrate this week. Once again, flags and banners were made by residents which had some of the residents puzzled, as they remembered the old flag and asked had I got the flag wrong. After some discussion and proof that the flag had changed and the date that it had changed, residents accepted. The Berlin Wall was discussed and a lovely afternoon tea was held with homemade Russian Layer Cake brought in by a staff member. The national drink was asked for as two of the residents remembered drinking “lots of vodka” when they visited Russia.
