Joan Keates 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!

Ladymead presents Joan Keates

Joan who used to upholster seats in the navy celebrated her 90th birthday in April. She met her husband after the war and emigrated to Australia. She listened to the coronation on the radio with some very patriotic Australians.

Joan came back to England in the late 50s.

She says the biggest change in the last 90 years has been technology

Now a resident at Ladymead, Joan’s guilty pleasure is Michael Ball. She joined his fan club on her 80th birthday.
