RESIDENTS of a Monifieth care home were joined by family and friends when they celebrated 21 years of caring on Friday.
Tullis House in the town was built by Abbeyfield, a not for profit charity which cares for elderly people.
Fittingly, the birthday cake was cut by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Lady Fraser, who officially opened the home 21 years ago with her husband, Peter.
The 10 residents, their friends and family also enjoyed a buffet and the music was provided by Bill Ford.
Abbeyfield exists to alleviate loneliness but encourage independence, whilst fostering new friendships. Residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible, keeping up outside interests and visiting, and being visited, by friends.
