Carmen’s 99th birthday

On Monday 20th July, Arcare Maidstone client, Carmen celebrated her 99th Birthday, surrounded by the Maidstone community and team.

This year Carmen’s birthday was celebrated a little bit differently than she has in her past 98 years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However in spite of everything going in the world, the lifestyle team were determined to make Carmen’s birthday special for her.

As Carmen’s family could not physically visit the residence to celebrate her birthday with her, the lifestyle team organised for her family members to send in a range of photos to make a personalised photo wall for Carmen. A wide smile swept across Carmen’s face as she saw the photo wall for the first time on her birthday.

In the afternoon, the lifestyle team organised a special high tea to honour Carmen. Chef, Hemal especially prepared some of Carmen’s favourite finger food and sweet treats, as well as a delicious pavlova for her birthday cake.

The Arcare Maidstone community would like to wish Carmen a very Happy 99th Birthday and many Happy Returns!
