Caregivers from Home Instead in Broadstairs helped Madge Thomas celebrate her 100th Birthday in style with family and friends and presented her with a beautiful plant for her garden.

Home Instead Caregiver Linda who visits Madge at home every week said, “Madge is an inspiration, she is always so cheerful and has a very positive outlook on life.”

Linda continues, “Together, we are in the process of setting up a ‘100 Club’ to establish links between Home Instead clients in Broadstairs. This came about after I realised that Madge attended the same school as another client who I visit every day who is 102.  I discovered that they had been friends many years ago. Now, they have exchanged photos and messages via Home Instead and we are arranging a reunion, it’s all very exciting.”

Both ladies have lived in their own homes for many years and, with the help and support from Home Instead, continue to live independently, which both passionately want to continue to do.
