Eunice Sanborn

Today I read that the world’s oldest woman, Eunice Sanborn from Texas died at the age of 114. Apparently Eunice enjoyed sitting outside of her home in Jacksonville where she has lived for 75 years. Now American pensioner Besse Cooper from Georgia takes the title of the world’s oldest woman; Besse is also 114 years old.

I think that it is extraordinary how long people are living nowadays. This is one of the reasons why I think we should be encouraging independent living, enabling elderly people to stay in their own homes for longer.

With many people surpassing the age of 100 The Queen has her work cut out sending so many birthday wishes to all our British centenarians.
