Indian Cultural Day

In July, the Arcare Reservoir community celebrated Indian culture. Arcare Reservoir has now made it a monthly tradition to celebrate and appreciate different cultures.

This month, Reservoir residence manager, Dexter decide to celebrate and recognise Indian culture, as he knew that many of his team members have an Indian background. It was a fantastic day, with a lot of team members, who were not rostered to work, showing up to support the day.

Team members and clients were encouraged to dress in colourful sarongs, sarees and other items of traditional Indian clothing.

During lunch, clients were treated to a fantastic Bollywood-esque dance from all the Indian team members. Many of the team members had been practicing their moves for weeks in preparation.

The kitchen also got right into the celebrations, offering fantastic Indian meals such as butter chicken to the clients.

As a thank you to all the team members at Reservoir, they were invited to share the meal with the clients.

The Arcare Reservoir community now looks forward to the cultural celebration days that we have each month, with many of the clients marking the date on their calendars.
