Newzbitez - Care Home Bingo Fan Celebrates 100th Birthday

Newzbitez – Care Home Bingo Fan Celebrates 100th Birthday

Birthdays are always special occasions, but it’s not often that we get to celebrate 100 of them! However, one care home resident from Buckie on the Moray Firth coast of Scotland recently celebrated her 100th year with a beautiful cake, a bottle of bubbly, and a birthday card from Queen Elizabeth II who is just 4 years short of celebrating her own 100th birthday.

The story of Isabella Jorgenson (who goes by Bella) made it into many local and national newspapers. As a resident of Netherha Care Home, she is no longer a fish worker, but she does love a good game of bingo. During lockdown, the care home decided to try out Zoom to enjoy a game of virtual bingo with other care homes near London and has since held further sessions in a bid to help the residents make new friends.
