Ashington care home celebrates 101st birthday of resident Jen Bell


Jen Bell was joined by family and friends for a special garden party in the garden of Station Court, which involved singing and dancing to live entertainment by swing vocalist Michael Stevens.

A toast was also made to Jen’s milestone birthday, and everyone tucked into a birthday cake.

Jen is one of 15,120 centenarians in the UK, and her daughter-in-law ??? said she was grateful to the care home staff for hosting the party.

Mandy Hurst, regional director of Station Court Care Home, said: “We’re delighted to be celebrating a truly remarkable lady as she reaches this amazing milestone.”

The home, which provides residential and dementia care for 64 residents, is run by Barchester Healthcare, an independent care provider which operates more than 250 care homes across the UK, along with seven registered hospitals.
