In recent weeks we have had the great honour of planning two very special occasions on behalf of two of our residents.
Keith Barnes and Mary Isherwood are both celebrating their 102nd birthdays.
Your birthday is the only day of the year on which you are given the right to celebrate yourself, your life and your achievements. Birthdays are incredibly important to us here at Peverel Court Care. We enjoy making a big fuss of anyone who is celebrating their special day.
We are especially glad to be celebrating such monumental birthdays with two of our most active residents
Keith moved to Bartlett’s in July 2016 from his home in Bournemouth so that he could be closer to his family, who live in the local area. Mary moved here in October last year. She’s always lived locally, but was looking for that extra bit of help. Both Keith and Mary enjoy getting involved in any activities available through our Bartlett’s activity teams, so we know that Keith appreciated the birthday party we threw for him last week, and that Mary will very much enjoy the one we have planned for her next month.
The families of both residents will be invited to attend their parties and as we always do, we’ll be asking our residents what they want to eat for their evening meal on their birthday. They can have anything they want. Through the years we’ve had some interesting requests but most people ask for old home cooked favourites specially prepared by our chefs, or for a takeaway.
We’d like to thank our activities coordinators for their dedication to our residents and their birthdays, and our staff for making these special days so memorable for our residents.
And to Mary and Keith we would like to wish you both a very happy birthday from everyone at Peverel Court Care.
