Evelyn May House celebrates a special 101st birthday

The team at Evelyn May House Care Home were thrilled to be able to plan some very special birthday celebrations for Claire, who turned 101 this week!

The home, in Langdon Hills, Essex, love to celebrate such special occasions and so when Claire’s birthday came around, staff worked hard to make sure that her day was as special as can be.

Wellbeing Leads, Danielle and Dawn, organised a surprise party, decorating their lounge, arranging delicious food platters and making sure all of Claire’s friends at the home were present to take part in the celebrations. Evelyn May House’s Chef, Eric, made a lovely birthday cake and the party food too.

Claire enjoyed opening her presents and cards from her family. She said she really did have a lovely day and it was a pleasant surprise.

Home Manager, Dan Elder, commented:

“The team worked tirelessly to make sure that Claire celebrated her 101st birthday surrounded by those who care for her most. At Evelyn May House, we love to celebrate one another’s special milestones, achievements and anniversaries. Marking such days help to create such a welcoming and warm environment, where everyone can feel like part of a family.”   

Across the Runwood Homes Group, teams always strive to celebrate the unique lives of residents, whether that be a birthday, a wedding anniversary or any other occasion, every resident is different and has their own successes to celebrate.

Evelyn May House have created a tight-knit community where everyone within the home comes together to help make residents’ special days the best they can be. Claire’s 101st birthday was certainly a reflection of that!
