Sunrise  |  August 4, 2020

Olive Nightingale (Nee Bassett) is a 96-year-old resident at Sunrise of Tettenhall. She has lived at the care home for the past 3.5 years.

Olive came to Sunrise of Tettenhall after she was no longer able to run her home following a few falls. She has been a Resident Ambassador at the care home since 2018. Olive said:

“The atmosphere here is always so friendly, caring and beautifully kept. I would give it a ten out of ten.

“You can have the best of both worlds at Sunrise of Tettenhall, with plenty going on, plus the opportunity for quiet time as well.”

Olive has made found a photo from school and wanted to look for any old classmates in the Wolverhampton area. She attended Wolverhampton Girls School, and has a photo that was taken in 1939 when she would have been in the 5th form. Olive added:

“The teacher was Miss Gregory and all the girls were presumably local. I am 96-years-old now and I can name every girl in the photograph. I am not in touch with any of the girls, but I thought if they were still living in Wolverhampton they might respond to the photograph.”

The Sunrise of Tettenhall team are hoping they may be able to help Olive find one of her old classmates. Anyone who would like to get in contact please email: tettenhall.avc@sunriseseniorliving.com
