"Ive had such a wonderful time celebrating my birthday with the staff and residents at Featherton House. Everyone made an extra special effort to ensure I enjoyed myself and my cake was delicious!"
A resident at Featherton House care home has marked her 101st birthday with a special party at the home with her fellow residents.
Joan Hearmon was joined by residents and staff at the Chapel Square home, in the landmark celebration – which included lots of prosecco and cake! The home also treated Joan to a lovely bouquet of 101 roses.
Joan’s secret to a long and healthy life is enjoying a glass of sherry every evening. Nowadays she enjoys a good nap as well!
Joan is a keen participant in Featherton House activities and particularly enjoys the pamper sessions organised by the home. She loves jewellery and is rarely seen not wearing it.
