Over the many years we’ve been supporting people to live comfortably in their own homes, we like to think there isn’t much we haven’t seen – but the next couple of months are certainly something to savour, with two of our customers celebrating their 101st birthdays!
Karen Hampshire, Avant field-based manager, has been helping to look after Philip, who will turn 101 in June, since 2016; and Elizabeth, who reaches 101 years young in May, has been an Avant customer since 2014.
Karen commented: “It’s special to see someone reach 100, so to have two lovely people within a month of each other turn 101 is extraordinary! Both Philip and Elizabeth are amazing and manage remarkably well at home.”
Philip is helped by his son and though he’s a “man of few words” according to Karen, he enjoys reading the newspapers every day.
Elizabeth also has strong familial support and is young at heart – in fact she enjoyed a great party at her local church hall for her 100th last year, at which she says she had “a wonderful time”!
We look forward to helping them both celebrate their incredible milestones.
