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!
Half Acre House presents Eileen Christian
Eileen was born in Radcliffe in 1926 into a loving family. She left school aged 14 and got a job making tags for show laces – her favourite job throughout her whole working career. She met her husband Kenneth and they married in 1950.
Not only is she the same age as the Queen, Eileen is also a big fan of Her Royal Highness. She inherited her mother-in-law’s TV to watch The Queen’s coronation with Kenneth.
Eileen wouldn’t swap places with The Queen as she believes it’s a big responsibility to head the country.
Now a resident at Half Acre House Eileen enjoys spending her days watching NCIS and eating sweets. Her favourite food is corn beef ash.
