Care Homes in Spalding celebrate Diwali, Festival of Lights

Staff and residents at Country Court care homes in Spalding had a fantastic day celebrating Diwali the Hindu festival of Lights. Everyone enjoyed learning more about Hindu culture and celebrating with staff.

At St Johns care home the senior carer, Leena made a beautiful Rangoli which was admired by all the residents and staff. The residents loved to see the Rangoli being created so much that some of them joined in and tried making their own.

A Rangoli includes a colourful design which is created on the floor of your home and is created to serve as a welcoming gesture to the gods and to bring luck.

At Ashwood Care and Nursing Home to celebrate Diwali, the residents and staff had a wonderful afternoon tasting Indian food, dancing and even having beautiful henna tattoos applied too. Residents loved to see the staff dressed up in their traditional outfits and admired the decorations and colourful outfits.

As a well-established part of the community in Spalding, St Johns Care Home provides residential and specialist dementia care in a warm, family-led setting. We understand that going into care can be daunting for many, so our caring and compassionate team are on hand to help you and your loved one make the most of the next chapter of life. Whether that is the little bit of extra support that has been needed, social stimulation through our daily activities programme or dedicated 24-hour personal care, we offer a caring environment that is safe, secure and sociable.
