Hi All! At my assisted living facility we have a resident turning 100 at the end of September! This is the first 100th birthday at this facility, and I am wondering what you guys do to celebrate? We want to make it a BIG event, as it is a very big milestone for her! Any ideas and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

First of all I hope you contacted all the local newspapers and TV stations and radio stations to them know about this event
How involved is the family ?
Perhaps you or they can hire aentertainer for the occasion and of course have a big birthday cake to share with all the residents at the big party

we just had the same , our lady has dementia and wouldn't believe she was 100! Her family organized the Queen's letter etc and had a big party for her at a relatives home so we had a smaller party for her a day later.. I found out info about the year she was born and also printed out pictures from that year a lot of S.A. her home city ( isn't Google Images great!), we then talked about events and passed the pictures around. The comments and memories from everyone was amazing..even if they hadn't been born/ young then. The lady in question actually fell asleep during the party worn out from the previous days celebrations but her family were very happy with what we did.

could you contact your local primary school,they may have a choir and it would be good for them also.decorate her room. make the day all about her .invite her friends from outside the facility. thank her for her contribution to our lives and tell her how special she is.she is amazing.
