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!
Ashbourne presents Edith Bennett
Edith will celebrate her 90th birthday on 9th September. Born and bred in Lower Gormal, with her two brothers and three sisters. She attended Redhall School, leaving when she was 14 to work in a sowing factory earning 8 and 6 pence a week. She met husband Frank when she was 18 and were married 4 years later. They had 1 son and 3 daughters.
Although she’s the same age as the Queen, Edith wouldn’t want to change places with her. She remembers going to a street party to celebrate the Queen’s coronation. Edith says that the world has become a better place thanks to the Queen.
Now a resident at Ashbourne Edith enjoys spending her days relaxing and taking part in the activities held in the home.
