The family said that 'Dorothy loved her life at St Ives and was in the best of health and in her prime, all because of the lifestyle available at her doorstep. Full of mixed emotions with regard to leaving her familiar surroundings and home, Dorothy finally agreed that moving closer to Wembley was apt. Her beloved husband had been placed in care at an all too young age, changing her life forever. So at 73 decided to move into St Ives Centro.
Sitting in the sun in her new home, watching the bowls, having roving dinner parties and a social life that she thoroughly enjoyed.
The first Friday we planned a family dinner… we were worried for Dorothy settling in and felt we wanting to get her out as much as possible. A knock on her door from a neighbour with an invitation to the usual Friday night drinks, Chase the Ace and dinner changed our plans. During her 17 years living, she met more and more people, happily some from her childhood home in the wheat belt.
Monday's would find Dorothy in the common room with her Chi Jung group and Scrabble in the afternoon's then Tuesday mornings Water Aerobics conducted by a trained physio therapist. Wednesday was a Tai Chi group and the afternoon was a Rummy Cub. Bowls also available was always fun with an energetic group, also eager lessons.
When provided a computer by family, she was among a group of residents teaching other residents computing skills along with ongoing support.
Lunches with friends were enjoyed in the restaurant on special occasions and visiting friends were happy to attend and often knew other diners. Others were welcome at casual barbecues mixing with good humoured residents creating a relaxed atmosphere.
At times she was thankful for the on-site doctor visits, handyman and hairdresser too.
Dorothy came into her own by realising that people needed people and people needed her and she had much to offer. Her experience of being a St Ives Resident for 17 years saw her remain positive, healthy, and involved with never a dull moment nor a wasted one.'
