One of the volunteers at Toronto East General Hospital is also a patient – but it’s been ten years since she needed any surgery.
Olive Dodd, who is 102 years old, was last at the hospital as a patient for an angioplasty when she was 92.
Now, a decade later, Dodd still has a jam-packed schedule, which includes volunteering, knitting and euchre.
“I didn’t knit until I was 80. I used to sew. When I couldn’t see to thread the needle, I turned to knitting,” Dodd said.
Reflecting back on her long life, Dodd said the world is much better now than when she was young – although she was “disgusted” by the free love moment.
“We didn’t approve.”
