Joyce's wish to return to The Lawns Care Home for her 90th Birthday

Joyce enjoying being back at The Lawns for her 90th Birthday celebrations

On 23rd March, The Lawns Care Home in Oadby were delighted to host a 90th Birthday party for one of our former respite stay residents, Joyce Reece.

Joyce had moved in with us for a stay over Christmas because she had decided she wanted ‘a hotel experience’ over the festive period.  Joyce soon became known as our very own ‘Duchess’ because of her love of the finer things in life. One of the things that Joyce enjoyed the most during her stay was our fine dining experience and this along with making new friends here and feeling that The Lawns was very much a home from home, brought her to the decision that she would like to celebrate her 90th birthday with us.

Decorations were put up and our chef Tracy Taylor made the most beautiful Birthday cake for Joyce and her guests to enjoy. Everyone who attended said what a wonderful time they had had, and compliments were also passed to Tracey for cooking Joyce’s choice of lunch – extremely posh fish and chips!

Home Manager Sam Towse said “Joyce is a very special lady with an amazing sense of humour and a real love of the finer things in life. We were honoured to host Joyce’s special celebration and we very much hope to welcome Joyce again for another respite stay this coming Christmas.” 

The Lawns Care Home is located in Oadby, Leicestershire and provides residential care and respite care.
