Nirvana celebrates Indian Independence Day

To celebrate Indian Independence Day, the Arcare Nirvana community held Indian Cultural Day in mid-August.

Team members and clients were encouraged to dress in bright colours, and the residence was decorated in the colours of the Indian flag: green, orange and white.

In the morning, the lifestyle team held a Bollywood Dance Class, where clients were walked through several key Bollywood moves to some popular Indian tunes.

Then after lunch, carer, Yogi held a cooking demonstration, showing the community how to make savoury Indian patties with a tamarind sauce, one of her family’s most treasured recipes. At the end of the day, clients gathered in the lounge for Indian Armchair Travel trivia, a quiz about all things Indian.
