A huge Happy Birthday to Gwen at Hulcott

Resident birthdays are always a special day at Hulcott care home in Aylesbury and for our resident, Gwen, her special day was no exception.

Gwen celebrated her 99th birthday in true style at our home with her family, friends and of course our residents, members of our team and our Home Manager, Margaret Smart.

Birthdays are celebrated round the world in a manner of styles. Not everyone has cake… For example, in China, the tradition is to symbolise longevity slurping a plate of long noodles and slurping to keep the length rather than biting, and in Jamaica tradition requires that friends and family, coat the birthday boy or girl to be “antiqued,” with flour.

Thankfully family, friends and members of our team who attended Gwen’s extra special celebration in the conservatory at Hulcott, sang to her and though there might not have been 99 red balloons, she had strawberries on a scrumptious cake made especially by our Chef. Gwen insisted that everyone joined her for a slice of her delicious birthday cake.

What a wonderful way to turn 99 years old.  She is a member of the nonagenarian club and truly living up to her birthstone which is an aquamarine.  It has a rich mesmerizing colour that ranges from pale to deep blue and is reminiscent of the sea and has long been a symbol of health and hope.

We are so glad we had the opportunity to share this special day with you Gwen and we wish you many happy returns.

At Hulcott care home in Aylesbury we provide the highest standards of specialist nursing and residential care for up to 38 elderly ladies and gentlemen.
