Staying in your own home need not be a daunting prospect. Beatrice Adamson, who celebrated her 100th birthday with a huge celebration in February, is proof of that.
Spirited, with a great sense of humour, Beatrice still lives happily in her own home. She enjoys conversation with her friendly neighbours, reading, housework and well-deserved sleep. Beatrice is still active and mobile, insisting “my legs can run around like a racehorse with my walker.”
With eldest daughter, Greer Thompson, just around the corner and other family and friends close by, Beatrice feels very well supported. “I’ve got the best family in the world. I’m a very lucky lady,” she tells Mamamia.
Beatrice is also visited by staff from Anglicare Southern Queensland’s Help at Home Services, who provide companionship while helping her with showering and housework.
