We had a wonderful time on our virtual trip to Hong Kong last week here at Abbotsleigh Care Home and were excited to celebrate Chinese New Year when we arrived!
We made a special display for our residents to enjoy, with photographs of Hong Kong, Chinese lanterns, our residents’ passports ready to go, as well as Chinese lucky envelopes to celebrate the New Year.
Our ladies loved our pretty parasols and Chinese fans and we had a travel program on our Smart TV, showing beautiful images of Hong Kong.
To make the event complete, we served a delicious selection of Chinese-themed food for lunch and supper, with beautiful table settings to really bring the whole experience to life;
Hong Kong Day Lunch
Sweet and Sour Chicken with Noodles or Fish Pie
Served with sprouts and baby carrots and a choice of mashed potatoes or noodles
Spring rolls, dumplings and sesame prawn toast
A selection of sweets from our trolley
We all enjoyed such a fun day and we’re looking forward to our next trip already!
