The team and residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Harrow have been celebrating kindness this month, sharing what it truly means to them.
A kindness tree has been created at Rowanweald Residential and Nursing Home in Weald Lane, which celebrates random acts of kindness the team and residents are proud of.
Individually creating a leaf, residents jotted down what kindness means to them and shared fond memories of kindness, creating a blossoming display in the entrance area of the home which they will add to each month.
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Sunita Ramasawmy said: “We really do keep kindness at the heart of everything we do here at Rowanweald and we are always looking for unique ways to celebrate kindness, which is where our display came from.
“Our residents feel just as strongly about kindness as the team and the activity proved to be a wonderful reminiscence activity as it brought back many memories from their younger years when neighbours or friends were kind to them.”
“Love is kindness”
Sharing what the word means to them, 84-year-old Margaret Ryan said: “Love is kindness.”
Betty Samuels, 90 continued: “Kindness is being nice to people.”
Finally, 72-year old Elaine Owen concluded: “It is being nice and helpful, giving all that you can and looking after people.”
