Caregivers help 102 year old to celebrate in style

Caregivers from Home Instead helped their eldest client celebrate her 102nd birthday in real style last week when they presented Ripon resident, Mrs Leila Howell, with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

A team of caregivers from Home Instead’s Ripon office are providing round the clock support, care and assistance to Mrs Howell allowing her to remain within her own home. The team all got together to wish Mrs Howell a very happy birthday and in return were thanked for all their hard work, kindness and professionalism.

Mrs Howell commented “All my carers are absolutely wonderful and are doing a fantastic job for me”.
