Finney House’s oldest resident Santa Parekh is 107 years old

On Wednesday February 5th, Finney House’s oldest resident Santa Parekh was 107 years old. She spent the day celebrating with a card from the Queen, a visit from our lovely Mayor David Burrows and a party with her family and friends organised by daughter in law Daksha. 

Santa has had 10 children, has 14 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren and been living in Preston with her son Bharit and daughter in law Daksha since 1974, until she needed nursing care. She is a keen snooker fan, has been a vegetarian all her life and has never drank alcohol. We asked her what the secret was to a long life and she said ‘be happy’. 

Well everyone at Finney House is certainly happy to know Santa and her family. What lovely people they are!
