Langhorne Senior Living Community’s Centenarian Resident Shares Life Advice
LANGHORNE, Pa. (Sept. 20, 2023) — National Centenarian’s Day, an annual observance slated this year for Friday, Sept. 22, is the perfect occasion to honor the community’s residents who have lived an entire century or more. It’s also a perfect time to learn from an older generation that has so much to share, and Oxford Crossings personal care in Langhorne is doing just that.
Jennifer McLaughlin, the senior living community’s life enrichment director, said she and her team embraced the day as an opportunity for the entire community to share in all that Oxford Crossings centenarian resident Gertrude Clauhs has experienced in her lifetime – from the Great Depression and World Wars to the exploration of space and the digital revolution. Here’s what she had to share about the secret to a long life:
“Love and laughter make me happy every day, and my family gives me that,” said Clauhs, who is 100 years old.
“We were thrilled to celebrate our amazing centenarian,” said McLaughlin. “Gertrude has enjoyed a rich and fascinating life, and her stories and wisdom are an inspiration to us all. At the same time, she and her family take comfort in knowing she has access to age-in-place support and services as needed.”
