Margaret celebrates her 105th birthday at Magna Care Centre

Magna Care Centre’s oldest resident Margaret Edmunds celebrated her 105th birthday during the home’s open afternoon this week.

Margaret – who has lived at the Wimborne home for two years – enjoyed an afternoon in the sunshine with cream tea on the lawn alongside other residents, family and friends.

The Magna care home in Wimborne is a stunning care centre providing residential and specialist nursing care for up to 63 elderly residents. The home has been praised in its latest CQC inspection report and was rated as providing a ‘Good’ care service with a coveted ‘Outstanding’ rating for being well-led.

Home manager Teresa Freeman said;

“Margaret is always ready for a chat with staff and visitors. She was a local lady and had an interesting career as a dressmaker and I understand had made clothes for royalty.
“We had a lovely open afternoon here at Magna Care Centre. The weather was kind to us and we all enjoyed cream tea on the lawns.”

The team at the Magna Care Centre are also celebrating after winning the Best Residential Team of the Year award at the Caring Homes Group Recognition Awards. The awards were presented at a glittering celebration hosted at the Grove Hotel in Watford and presented by musician and singer Ronan Keating.

The attached photos show Margaret with her daughter Jackie and the cupcakes which were prepared to celebrate her milestone birthday.
