Patient Celebrates Her 100th Birthday

Lorna Waters, who had been a long term patient of Newcross Healthcare Solutions home care division has just celebrated her 100th birthday with a little help from her old friends.

Jenny Osborne, (pictured on the left) joined Lorna at her nursing home to celebrate her 100th birthday last week and presented her with a large bunch of flowers on behalf of the Newcross team who had taken care of her over the years as a homecare client.

Lorna was also joined by Donna Woodburn (pictured on the right) who is also one of her carers at the home.  Jenny explained "Lorna has become a great friend of the Newcross team and we wanted to make sure that we really helped her to celebrate her 100th birthday in style."

According to a recent report from NHS Choices, half of all babies born in the developed nations will live to 100 years.

Newcross Healthcare Solutions head office is based at Berry Pomeroy near Totnes and has offices all round the UK.
