Burns Night marks the anniversary of Robert Burns, a renowned poet who was born on 25th January 1759. The traditional Burns supper is an evening that celebrates his life and work. Here at Deeside Care Home we celebrated in true Scottish form with a classic combination of haggis, neeps, tatties, some reciting of poetry and maybe even a warming dram. We also used this opportunity to celebrate Scotland's enduring legacy of creativity.
As we celebrate Burns Night, we embrace all Scottish Gaelic heritage. People traditionally greet one another with the phrase "Sláinte Mhath!" which translates to "Good Health!"
It's not only important for us to celebrate something that means a lot to our culture, but it's also important to celebrate within our home to ensure our residents feel included, it's about being apart of community engagement within our home, we want to encourage our residents to get involved, especially when its to do with our Scottish history.
If you'd like to have a look at what else we do for our wonderful residents, take a look at our news and events page and if you'd like to get in contact with us further about our care home, please don't hesitate to reach out, we'd be happy to talk and answer any questions you may have.
