Staff and residents at Ross Court Care Home in Ross-on-Wye welcomed in the Year of the Dragon with a day of celebrations and activities.

Inspired by Chinese culture and traditions, the home was decorated with vibrant red decorations and many residents took part in making the traditional hanging lanterns. Residents learnt all about the traditions and superstitions of Chinese New Year. The hospitality team also cooked up an oriental feast for everyone to enjoy.

Agda-Claudia Vasilateanu, General Manager of Barchester’s Ross Court said: “We have had a brilliant day, the home looks absolutely wonderful decorated all in red and we all had such fun finding out what animal we are, the associated traits and reading each other’s horoscopes.”

The varied life enrichment programme aims to keep residents active, and provide a daily choice of engaging physical, mental and spiritual activities tailored to residents’ interests and abilities.
