Love is in the care
Hallmark Care Homes will spread a bit of love this Valentine’s Day by giving out beautiful roses to our residents.
Over 1000 wooden roses will be distributed by the care team to residents from each of our 17 care homes across England and Wales for the second year running.
The thoughtful activity, which has been aided by Anita at charity, Anita’s Angels, helps to build on those important relationships between the care team and the residents.
Avnish Goyal, Managing Director of Hallmark Care Homes said: “This Valentine’s Day, our care team are going to distribute over 1000 roses to our residents with an accompanying card.
“The aim is to make our residents feel special this Valentine’s Day, and let them know that we are there for them, and that we value our relationship with them as our greatest asset.
“Many of our residents have not received a rose in years, while others have not received a rose in their lifetime. We hope that giving the residents a rose on Valentine’s Day will bring a smile to their face and show them how much we care.”
In addition to giving out roses, the homes will be pulling out all the stops to make sure our residents are feeling the love this Valentine’s Day.
Bucklesham Grange, our care home in Ipswich will give our residents the option to either be pampered or to decorate heart shaped biscuits in the morning. In the evening, the residents will celebrate with an afternoon tea and love themed quiz.
Anisha Grange, our care home in Billericay will have a visit from Goldcrest Nursery to make Valentine’s Day cards with the residents and Cherry Tree, our care home in Caldicot will have a visit from a Dewston Primary School who will assist with the distribution of the roses and help to decorate cardboard heart wreaths.
Bryn Celyn, our care home in Maesteg will be celebrating with a Valentine’s themed High Tea.
Meanwhile, residents at Regency House, our care home in Cardiff, will have a Valentine’s Day show with professional singer, Michael Leslie. They will also have their roses and chocolates delivered by Business Support Manager, Nick Carpanini who will dress up as the Milk Tray Man for the special event.
