On the 22nd April, Novus Care was proud to celebrate with our longest client their 100th birthday. Eily, has been a client of Novus Care since 2014 and she really is part of the Novus Care family and last weekend we were honoured to be invited to celebrate her momentous occasion with a special birthday celebration at her home.
A northern girl at heart, during the war Eily was a Wireless Operator in the RAF and she was so proud to receive a certificate of congratulations from the RAF on her 100th birthday (pictured). After the war she met her beloved husband Paul and started their married life in Sheffield and had their son Jeremy. After moving many times due to their careers they set up home in Abbotts Langley, Hertfordshire where Eily still lives. Eily, is an extremely independent lady who still loves completing the Times crossword and to this day still does her own cooking and even shops online! However 9 years ago, Paul started to need more assistance on a daily basis – which is when Eily reached out to Novus Care. We provided visiting care to Paul until he passed away in 2021 and our carers now continue to support Eily at home on a regular basis so she can keep living independently at home.
Her regular carers Becky and Jill, presented Eily with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It was also a special moment for Rebecca Burrows our Compliance Manager too as they both came to Novus Care within 2 months of each other.
Rebecca said: “It was wonderful to listen to Eily’s achievements from her family and friends and help her celebrate such a momentous birthday”.
“At Novus Care, we work hard to support all our clients to lead fulfilling independent lives, and celebrating special occasions and birthdays plays a huge part in this. We love any excuse to celebrate the amazing people we care and support for at home and Eily’s birthday was no exception”
“We were honoured to raise a glass to her incredible life so far and are privileged to have her as part of our Novus Care family!”
