Meet Yolanda!

Yolanda magazine
Yolanda, client, Abbeyfield Care & Support

Yolanda was born in Belgium and has many fond memories of her childhood and early working days. She met her husband through work before moving to Aberdeen in 1955.

Although it was hard moving to a strange country and leaving all her family behind, she made many friends with colleagues at Oxfam, who enjoyed listening to her stories so much that she made an appearance on the front page of Aberdeen’s magazine the Leopard!

Our Companions at Abbeyfield Care & Support continue to enjoy listening to Yolanda’s stories today. Kay says, ‘it’s a pleasure to visit Yolanda, who always has a smile and a story to share over a cup of tea. We love listening to classical music together and always switch on the radio while doing a crossword, or I am helping with the ironing’.
