“A beautiful, loving, caring lady, Ruth said the secret to her longevity is staying active and involved.”
On the day of the Anglican Care celebration, Ruth’s Scottish heritage was celebrated with a rousing performance by the Wingham Pipe and Drum Band. Ruth lives at home with her daughter, Sue, and is a wonderful example of how Anglican Care can support older people to staying living at home independently with the assistance of a home care package.
