At Bupa David Lange Care Home they celebrate diversity and cater to their resident's cultural needs. “We have a number of residents all from different backgrounds, including a large number of Indian and Polynesian residents, says Barbara Newlands the Care Home Manager of Bupa David Lange.
For their South Asian residents, Bupa David Lange Care Home provides a special Aashirwad offering, which was created with the Bhartiya Samaj Charitable Trust to help provide care that’s culturally appropriate for their South Asian residents.
“Our staff do a wonderful job interpreting our resident's needs and supporting them to get the most out of every day. We have a number of caregivers who can speak different languages, including Hindi, Nepali, Samoan, Tongan and Niuean. We’ve found our residents were happier when they were receiving care from someone that could speak their language and understand their cultural needs,” says Barbara.
At Bupa David Lange Care Home, they also provide a variety of meals and activities to suit their residents’ needs. They can choose from four meal options, including South Asian such as a curry and a roti, Polynesian, European or a special daily alternative.
