‘Green’ day at Mercy Place
THERE were no leprechauns or shamrocks to be seen but that did not stop seniors at Mercy Place Lathlain from celebrating St Patrick’s Day in style on Friday.
The day included a traditional jig performed by local Irish dancers, followed by an afternoon ‘green’ theme happy hour with some specially prepared food and beverages.
Mercy Place Lathlain acting service manager Surabh Nair said the organisation had a focus on ensuring residents participate in fun, social activities and generally find joy in their everyday lives.
“The residents involved did not do many jigs themselves, but they definitely got into the ‘green’ spirit and the music,” he said, adding that St Patrick’s Day gave the organisation a reason to celebrate the cultural diversity of its staff and residents at Mercy Place Lathlain.
