ASHYLNS Care Home in Harlow had cause for celebration this week as one of their residents, Doris, was joined by members of the Ashlyn team as well as friends and family to celebrate her birthday.
At Excelcare, they believe in celebrating the achievements of residents whether that be learning a new skill, a personal achievement or in this case a milestone birthday.
The residents and team members at Ashlyn Care Home came together to celebrate Doris’ 100th birthday this week.
Her friends and family were also invited and were determined to make her day feel as special as possible.
The day started with three generations of her family coming to visit including her son, great granddaughters and her great great grandchildren. They were all thrilled to see her and there was quite a bit of excitement buzzing around the home as Doris received her telegram from Her Majesty the Queen, congratulating her on her milestone birthday. Plenty of Doris’ friends, family and the team spent time congratulating her and looking over the letter.
Later in the day, the team at Ashlyn planned some special visits for Doris including an entertainer who was specially picked to play her favourite songs, offering a trip down memory lane and the chance to reminisce on her fantastic life experiences. Doris even had a little sing-along herself whilst her grandchildren danced; much to the amusement of everyone watching.
After this, Doris was in for another treat when the chair of Harlow Council came to congratulate her. The two of them enjoyed a chat and also had some photos taken together with the team from Ashlyn.
Congratulations Doris on your life achievements and your milestone 100th birthday! We hope you had an amazing day and couldn’t be prouder to have you as part of the Excelcare family.
