Kingswood Resident celebrates 94th birthdayAt residential and nursing memory care home, Pennwood Lodge, in Wotton-under-Edge, one very special Resident is celebrating her 94th birthday. 

Catharina Gent, who was born on 15th April 1927, in what was then Holland, wished to celebrate her birthday quietly in her room with just the Colleagues on duty.

She had decorations put up and had afternoon tea in her bedroom with Wellbeing Colleague, Julie, and other care staff.

They listened to music and sang songs together which Catharina enjoyed. 

Catharina studied Law in Holland and worked as a secretary at a doctor’s surgery. When she got married, after the world war, she left her position and became a full-time mum to her daughter, Kate and son, Christopher. 

Catharina enjoys cooking, sewing, singing, dancing, musicals and family gatherings.

Sarah Daly, Care Home Manager, commented, “Catharina had a birthday celebration exactly how she wanted, and we wished her a very happy day.”
