Staff and residents at Barchester’s Chorleywood Beaumont care home made lots of kind gestures in the spirit of World Kindness Day.
The global event took place on November 13 and to celebrate it, they created a paper chain long enough to wrap around the home.
Local schools and churches were kind enough to send their paper chain with words of kindness to show that even during the lockdown they were connected one way or the other.
They proved that being kind to each other really does make the world a better place.
General manager, Diana Nica, said: “As a care home, it is our duty to cultivate a kind and nurturing environment 100 per cent of the time, but it was great to see residents really getting into the spirit of things and going out of their way to help each other out.
“We all really liked everyone getting involved in creating this paper chain – it was such a simple, yet effective way to make others happy at the home.”
Flora, a resident at Chorleywood Beaumont, said: “Being kind to people isn’t hard, but it was really nice to see others being extra kind and making little gestures to put a smile on peoples’ faces – just the simple act of paying someone a compliment can really make their day.”
World Kindness Day focuses on the idea of people being nicer towards each other for the day by carrying out simple acts of kindness for someone else.
The day’s ultimate goal is to increase the value that we as a society place on kindness and to make it a bigger part of our daily lives.
