Iris Turns 84 in Quarantine

Dene Holm Residential Care Home resident, Iris Eswell, celebrated her 84th Birthday on Tuesday 14th March in quarantine at the Northfleet care home.

Despite being in lockdown at her care home residence, a number of Iris’s family members made the trip to visit her and wish her a very happy birthday through the window.

In emotional scenes at the Dene Holm Road home, Iris was able to see her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who had made signs to tell her how much they love and miss her.

Christine Hutchinson, General Manager of Dene Holm said: “For the safety of our residents, we cannot permit visitors in the home at the moment, but Iris’s family made sure it was special as they visited her at the window. It was very emotional but it was lovely for her to be able to see her loved ones.”
