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!
Hillside Lodge presents Ellen Patterson
Ellen celebrated her 90th birthday back in February.
The biggest change she’s seen in her 90 years is the advancement in technology, stating ‘ people just had a wireless to listen to music and news, now people have so many more options to find out what’s going on’.
Ellen used to work at Woolworths before leaving to have a family. She later went to work for Jus-Rol.
She’s a big animal lover and used to have three dogs at home before moving to Hillside
Now a resident at Hillside Lodge, Ellen enjoys spending her days relaxing and joining in with the activities held in the home. She really enjoys it when the pet therapy animals come in.
