Friday 12th February started off the Brazilian Carnival, this is a carnival that lasts a week, so on Wednesday 17th February we decided to have our own Brazilian day. One of our HCA’s Keyth and her mum one of our domestic team members Katia are both from Brazil so they helped us make some traditional Brazilian snacks. The staff dressed up with feathers in their hair or Brazilian head wear. Jo Croft our Quality manager joined us for the day too. We watched a Brazilian carnival on you tube as well as trying these Brazilian snacks that Keyth helped us make. The residents had great fun dancing to some Brazilian music and watching the carnival on TV. They particularly enjoyed the snacks and drink, although Helen was not sure at first about the drink as it was ‘very fizzy’.
