That’s right, resident Pat Dowdle celebrated her 106th birthday high tea party at Beaumont Care Peninsula. Pat is an amazing lady, and so young at heart. Her biggest accomplishment in life she says, is living for a long as she has, with one kidney for 60 years by following doctors’ orders and easing up on her intake of spices and condiments!
She always goes by the motto ”live and let live, never lose your sense of humour, and always have a good laugh with respect for older people”. Her wise words also include “love people for who they are, and accept their individuality as we are all different”.
Happy birthday Pat, love and best wishes from residents and staff of Beaumont Care. You are one special lady that we all adore.
