Residents at a Chorleywood care home celebrated International Women’s Day earlier this month.
Residents at Chorleywood Beaumont gathered on March 8 to discuss the many achievements of trail-blazing women throughout history.
They discussed Boudicca, a tribal queen who rebelled against the Romans in the 1st century; Florence Nightingale, a famed nurse known for transforming care standards; pioneering physicist Marie Curie, and many more. They also talked about the important women in their own lives and celebrated the achievements of their fellow residents.
Afterwards, Italian tenor Yuri Sabatini wowed residents with an “amazing show”.
Ramona Stanciu, general manager at Chorleywood Beaumont, said: “We’ve all had a really interesting day thinking about the many brilliant women who have had such an impact on our lives, whether that was an historic figure or people in our own family.”
Resident Sally MacMurtie said: “It is amazing to think how much things have changed just in my lifetime. It is wonderful that women have so many more opportunities these days. It was a joyful and inspiring day.”
