Doris spent time working in the rag trade during the war and went on to join the fire service, where she met her husband, Jim.
Mother to Margaret, Doris settled in well to life at Dell Field Court and enjoys the company of other residents as well as the familiar faces of team members. She finds this a welcome change from living alone at home and enjoys social aspects and activities hosted by the team at the care home.
