Gilda Fernandes 100th Birthday

Madeiran Gilda Fernandes celebrated her 100th birthday this week.

Despite her age Gilda, who is married, takes care of her 93-year-old bedridden husband, looks after the house and still goes to the hairdresser once a week.  Although she has no children or other family members, she does have someone stay at her house during the night to keep her company, and help if either she or her husband need help.  But as she says, she is rarely ill.

Congratulations Gilda on reaching this milestone.
