It’s shocking to think that almost a year has passed since the residents and staff at Britannia Care, in Girlington, were looking forward to King Charles III visiting Bradford.

Where does the time go?

If you have a loved one in need of residential care, how that time is spent is very important.

Throughout the year, with the help of the staff, Britannia Care residence mark and celebrate a diverse range of cultural, and, like the occasion of Queen Elizabeth II funeral and then the coronation of the new King, as well as his visit to Bradford - landmark historical events, too.

Last year, the visit of King Charles III to the city was and added bonus as residents, like they do every year, have a pretty full social calendar of events throughout the autumn and in the run up to Christmas.

This year has been no exception. Just recently, Diwali, Halloween and Bonfire Night have all been great social occasions, with residents and staff getting involved and marking the days in traditional fashion with themed food, and of course fireworks.

Mr Chaudhry Inayat Khan, director and founder of Britannia Care, explained the importance of ensuring there’s always a range of activities taking place.

“It is important that we don’t forget what is taking place in and around us every day, and to mark those occasion when and whenever we can.

“Many of our residence would have been enjoying these traditions and event throughout their lives and it’s important that we ensure that our residents can continue to mark these occasions while they are with us at Britannia Care.

“They are always joyous events, and the staff love to get involved, too.”

“At Britannia Care every day is a celebration of what makes us different and what we have in common.”
