Indian-Themed Day

Tenants at one of Catholic Care's supported living services for adults with learning disabilities have begun a programme of events exploring world cultures.

The tenants at Oakdene Supported Living made a New Year’s resolution at their January 2024 meeting: to hold a country-themed day every couple of months.

The first such event on 2nd February was Indian-themed. Tenants decorated their home in the orange, white, and green of the Indian flag.

D. cooked Murgh Kari, an authentic Indian chicken curry. This was accompanied by poppadoms, naan bread, onion bhajis, and yoghurt sauce: this was certainly N.’s favourite part!

Tenants enjoyed learning facts about India; this knowledge was put to the test with a quiz, with everyone winning a bag of chocolate. D. said he learned a lot and has gone on to learn other facts about India.

The tenants said the first themed-day was a great success, both informative and fun. D. would like the next one to be about Italy, whilst R. has suggested London.
