Alison McKay celebrates her 90th year by sharing her story

The theme for Care Home Open Day this year focuses on celebration and the Queen’s 90th birthday. Here at Four Seasons Health Care we thought it would be nice to share some of our resident’s stories who are also celebrating their 90th year!

Earlsferry House presents Alison McKay

Alison will celebrate her 90th birthday on the 19th October. She was born in Kenmore Terrace and has one sister. She contracted Scarlett Fever before primary school and fell ill again aged 7, preventing her from going to secondary school.

Once she was better Alison went to the Wemyss Needlework School to learn embroidery. Alison remembers seeing the Queen through the gates of the coal yard at Wellsly Pit, which was being re-purposed into an oil rig yard.

Now a resident at Earlsferry House Alison enjoys spending her days relaxing and taking part in the activities held in the home.
