A Hampshire care home rated as ‘outstanding’ by regulators celebrated diversity in the workplace by holding a national costume day.
Twenty different nationalities work as one team at Colten Care’s Kingfishers home in New Milton.
Eight staff donned their national costume and took part in a fashion show with residents invited to judge their favourite costume.
Rose Arcellana, Kingfishers’ Companion Team Leader, said: “The judges agreed that all the costumes were stunning and it was impossible to choose one winner.
“We presented bottles of prosecco to all eight participants because, as far as we’re concerned, everyone was a winner.”
Beata Brzozowska, Home Manager, added: “We’re very proud that, even though our staff come from all over the world, they work as one team to provide an outstanding home for our residents.”
Colten Care’s Kingfishers home was rated ‘Outstanding’ by the care sector regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), last year.
