Taste, sights and sounds of Thailand come to Lymington

Taste, sights and sounds of Thailand come to Lymington.

Variety is the spice of life at Colten Care's Court Lodge.

Court Lodge Thai BBQVariety really is the spice of life at Colten Care's homes. This week, residents at Court Lodge tucked into a tasty selection of traditional Thai dishes at their summer barbecue, while the Southampton Thai Dancers provided colourful entertainment. 

 

Participating in a diverse range of activies is recognised as being an important way to stay mentally sharp as we get older. Keeping active, eating well, keeping learning, challenging your brain and engaging your senses are all important - and these qualities were certainly 'in play' as residents, friends, families and carers enjoyed a Thai-themed day in the sunshine!

Thai dancers and bbq at Colten Care's Court Lodge“Many of our residents may have enjoyed holidays in the Far East and Asia, including Thailand, explained Jackie Seeborun, Home Manager. "They really appreciate being able to relive the taste, sights and sounds again of that fascinating part of the world. It’s been a lovely day, much enjoyed by everyone. The food and dancing have been fantastic and staff, residents and families have had a great time.”

 

Jackie explained that year’s theme was chosen in tribute to Suwanna Saelin, a healthcare assistant at Court Lodge, who comes from Thailand. “We are a multi-cultural home and everyone – carers, housekeepers, nurses, activity organisers and, of course, our chef Matt Jerrard and Catering Manager Paddy O’Driscoll – have worked together as a team to put on this event. My special thanks to Julia Puia, Activity Organiser, who made a great contribution.”
