War Veteran Celebrates 100th Birthday at Haversham House Care Home1/8/20, 5:00 PM
A veteran who took part in World War II, and who now resides at a Safe Harbor care home in Stoke-on-Trent, has celebrated a landmark birthday over the weekend.
Robert Sheridan, a resident at Haversham House care home, located in Trentham, reached 100 years of age on Saturday January 4th, 2020.
Robert, also known as Bob, was happy to receive a telegram from the Queen for his achievement as well as getting his story in the local newspaper. Many of his family members also travelled from all around the UK to spend time with him on this special occasion.
Originally from East Lothian in Scotland, Robert came to Stoke-on-Trent as a serviceman during the war, where he met his first wife. He has been living at Haversham House care home for over 6 years and is a well loved member of the home.
Celebrations on the day also included a variety of cakes and treats, as well as live musical entertainment from vocalist Tom Wenlock, which all residents were able to enjoy.
Occasions such as these are always celebrated in Safe Harbor care homes. All of our residents receive person-centred care and get to partake in activities that are meaningful to them.
