The remarkable Mrs Ball

Mrs Ball at Twilight Jamieson House

Taking photos at an aged care home this week, I met with Mrs Ball who I first photographed last year. This remarkable lady turns 101 this month and has been living in the home for almost 30 years. She had just finished her lunch which she had chosen to eat away from the busy dinning room and was in the process of balancing her plate on her walking frame to return to the kitchen. My client told Mrs Ball that someone would do that for her. She responded with, “I know dear, however I can do it myself”. No doubt it’s this attitude that has kept Mrs Ball so sharp and positive for all these years.
