In a moving display of care and kindness, a special moment unfolded at Mill Lane Care Home in Felixtowe. Peggy, a beloved resident who recently celebrated her 99th birthday, received a touching surprise from Simon, member of the care team.

Peggy’s birthday may have passed, but the joy continued when Simon, knowing Peggy’s love for reminiscing about her time in the Land Army, found an old photograph. The picture captured Peggy walking through Ipswich, in her uniform and accompanied by her fellow Land Girls – a moment dear to her heart.

Presenting the framed photograph to Peggy, Simon’s thoughtful gesture spoke volumes about the compassionate spirit of Mill Lane care home. Peggy’s face lit up, expressing her gratitude and surprise for the gift.

Debbie Austin, Activities Co-Ordinator at Mill Lane photographed the touching moment. “Peggy receiving this picture from Simon was wonderful,” she said. “It reminds her of happy times, and we love celebrating our resident’s lives.”

Simon was happy to see Peggy’s reaction. “Peggy brings so much joy to our home here at Mill Lane,” he said. “I wanted to do something special for her, and to celebrate her life, and seeing her smile made it all worth it.”

This simple exchange between Peggy and Simon shows the caring and friendly atmosphere at Mill Lane Care Home, where every resident is valued and celebrated.
