Mexico comes to Northumberland care home

By 17th April, 2018 Press Releases No Comments

MEXICO came to Northumberland as care home residents were treated to a fiesta from across the pond.

The Oaks Care Home, in Blyth, held a Mexican themed evening, with the country’s flag adorning the walls and a flavorsome feast for dinner.

They enjoyed a starter of tortillas, followed by chilli con carne and, for dessert, a choice of mocha bundt cake or arroz con leche.

Resident Dennis Allen said: “I didn’t think I would enjoy the food because it’s something I haven’t had before but I think this should be added to the regular menu.”

Pat Whyatt said: “It’s always nice to try new foods, it has been lovely.”

Raymond Pringle added: “It has been nice to sit with everyone laugh, listen to the music and have a couple of tipples.”

Ann Mielnik, home manager at The Oaks Care Home, on Durban Street, said: “We’re always looking for ways to give the residents new experiences and things to try.

“They decided on the Mexican menu at their last residents meeting and, while some were a little nervous about trying new food, everyone had a great time.”
