Usually, 100th birthdays call for big celebrations and we never like to pass up the opportunity to celebrate a special birthday, so we made sure our lovely resident Pat enjoyed her day with lots of special surprises.
Cards, presents and birthday wishes poured in for Pat, who was overwhelmed by the effort made by everyone with her family putting together a special birthday video which they played to her over Zoom. After enjoying breakfast with her fellow residents, Pat retired to her room to return calls and open her gifts and cards and in particular, her 100th birthday card from the Queen.
As the afternoon drew to a close, Pat and her friends on the unit enjoyed a delicious birthday cake with Pat saying: ‘I feel so blessed and couldn’t be any happier today. I have a great home, a lovely bedroom and great friends.’ She continued: ‘The people that care for me are so caring and today has been the best day. Thank you for all you have done – I am so overwhelmed.’
