Marie’s 104th birthday

On Saturday 15th February, Arcare Carnegie client, Marie Parkin celebrated her 104th birthday.

The centenarian enjoyed the special day being surrounded by the Arcare Carnegie community and team.

At lunchtime, the Carnegie care team surprised Marie with balloons, presents and a delicious chocolate birthday cake. Marie was so delighted by the kindness and thoughtfulness shown by the team, and even referred to them, as her “second family”.

Later in the day, Marie’s friends and extended family arrived to take the birthday girl out for a special dinner; vowing to keep the celebrations going all night long.

Last year, Marie had the privileged of being a part of her grandson, David’s wedding, as a flower girl. Marie considers the most important thing in life to be her family, and she always likes to look on the bright side of life.

The Arcare Carnegie community would like to wish Marie a very Happy Birthday and many Happy Returns.
