Joan Peppiatt Celebrates Her 90th Birthday

Everyone at the Edensor Care Centre in Clacton on Sea celebrated Joan Peppiatt’s 90th Birthday on 3 February

Joan Peppiatt, who has been living at the charity Diagrama’s Edensor Care Centre in Clacton on Sea since November last year had a very special day on Thursday 3 February as she turned 90. Her bedroom was dressed with birthday balloons and banners and the staff presented the birthday girl with a huge birthday cake that all the residents could enjoy and sang a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday.

Joan received lots of cards and presents from her family and friends and the care team at Edensor gave her flowers and chocolates  and ensured she enjoyed one of her best-loved things, a  relaxing bath with her favourite fragranced bath bombs as part of her special day.

Muhammed Neeliyath, Registered Manager, Edensor Care Centre, “Joan only moved to Edensor in late November, and she has settled in so well. Unfortunately, we were not able to have visitors last week, so the team made sure that Joan had a fabulous day celebrating her 90th. The team love chatting with Joan, and they tell me that she is really looking forward to the better weather when she might be able to visit the beach in one of our specially adapted wheelchairs.”
