Takeaway nights at St Mary’s

Residents and colleagues at St Mary’s Nursing Home in Moston, Greater Manchester, have started organising regular takeout evenings.

Our aim is to enjoy food from our local takeaways – including Chinese and Indian – once a month, with the option to adapt the dishes for those with specific dietary requirements, so that everyone can join in.

Our administrator, Barbara, said: “As we still cannot have our usual range of activities, we’ve been focusing on what we can do – such as ordering delicious meals!

“I’ve also been working with residents individually. One lady enjoys sitting with our staff team at reception, and being involved in everyday happenings – and we’re happy for her to keep us company!

“Another resident had some particular shopping requests, so I helped her out with those. Other residents have been keen to watch their favourite television programmes or listen to music. Whatever people like to do, we try to organise it.”
