Donald Greenwood, a Resident at HC-One’s The Polegate care home in East Sussex, celebrated his 100th birthday with his family, friends and fellow Residents.
To mark the special day, The Polegate put on a party for Donald, which was attended by members of the care team and fellow Residents.
Donald enjoyed deliveries of presents, cards, and also a birthday cake and singing by Colleagues. Donald also had balloons and a lovely garden visit on the afternoon with his daughter Linda and they watched video messages from his loved ones as well. What topped it all off was his special message from Queen Elizabeth (see Donald pictured proudly displaying his card).
He commented, “Thank you all so much I am so touched. I have had a lovely day and have been sent lovely things.”
HC-One is also celebrating achieving a 9.5 average rating on the sector’s leading care home comparison website carehome.co.uk. The high rating puts HC-One homes into the very best company in the care home sector, committed to providing kind care to Residents
