Deddington Care Home Resident Celebrates Milestone Birthday

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.

Joan said: “I’ve 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!”

Agi Rygala, home manager at Featherton House, said: “Joan likes to join in with the activities within the home and is very friendly and chatty. She always has a kind word for everyone, and she is a valued member of our Featherton House family.

“All our staff and residents ensured she had the best birthday possible, after all, you only turn 101 once!”
