Seven residents at Wheaton's DuPage Care Center are 100 or older
Centenarian residents at the DuPage Care Center in Wheaton had a special party on Monday.
There are seven residents at the center who are 100 or older and they celebrated with their families at a gathering that featured cake, punch and memories.
Organizers said they wanted to do something special for National Nursing Home Week and the party seemed a perfect choice.
"We thought, what better thing than to celebrate our residents who are over 100," said Linda Gray, recreation supervisor. "We call it our 100 Club, a celebration of life."
June Wassell is the oldest resident of the seven at 103.
"I have no secrets," she said when asked about her longevity. "Some days I feel so good. I just take it one day at a time."
