Windsor Hampton Care Center Hosts 100th Birthday “Drive-Through” Parade

April 30, 2020 – Stockton, CA – Windsor Hampton Care Center, a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center located in Stockton, California, hosted a “drive through parade” to honor a resident, Dorothy Ulvang, at its’ care center who is celebrating her 100th birthday.

In a typical time, Windsor Hampton Care Center would celebrate residents’ significant life milestones, such as their centenarian birthday, with an onsite party, inviting family and friends to attend. However, due to the restrictions of COVID-19, an alternative celebration took place. Family, friends and community neighbors decorated their cars and made posters, honoring the centenarian. They drove by the facility honking, waving and sharing their good wishes. All attendees received a bundt cake, compliments of Mike Robinson of Nothing Bundt Cakes.

“During this time of pandemic, the celebratory event was a welcome opportunity for the community to come together and join in something positive while staying safe in their vehicles,” says Kriste Merin, Area Director of Business Development. “We are certain Dorothy felt the love of the entire Stockton community.”
