DALMUIR Park Housing Association (DPHA) recently discovered that five generations of the same family are using their housing and care services.

The association hailed the “unique occasion” where 5-year-old Jayden Cunningham, 23-year-old Emma Carr, 42-year-old Lee-ann Tinline, 70-year-old Mary Barr, and 90-year-old Mary McCann were all being aided by their services.

Ms. McCann, the eldest, said: “I have been receiving care services from the association for many years. I can’t praise all the staff at Dalmuir Park Housing Association highly enough."

She has been living in the sheltered housing complex for eight years. The former lab technician moved to Clydebank 65 years ago. Ms. McCann lives with her husband, James, who is also 90.

Mary Barr moved to the area with her mother 65 years ago and has also lived in the sheltered housing complex for eight years. She added: "I find the association staff friendly and very helpful."

Ms. Tinline, who works in administration, and Ms. Carr, who is training to be a midwife, both live in DPHA's general housing stock.

The youngest, Jayden, 5, recently started at Our Lady of Loretto Primary.

Pat Gilbride, DPHA director, said ‘For an organisation working hard to provide relevant, affordable, high-quality services to our local community, this is a great example of all those care and housing objectives being delivered across the widest possible series of generations and age groups.

“We hope to continue to provide all these services and more to the family and the wider community for as long as they are needed, and we also pass on our very best wishes to the two Mary's on reaching two very significant birthday milestones.”
