A relative to one of our residents here at Granby Rose Care Home came up with such a beautiful idea for our residents whilst families are unable to visit.
She hand-made these beautiful little hearts that were part of a unique pair, the idea being that our residents would keep one of the pair and the other would be sent to their relative with a little note so that we can feel closer together. The note says: “This little heart is one of a pair. The other heart is with…. (the resident writes the name). So you are linked with love.”
The hearts arrived beautifully wrapped in a lovely box with the words “Happiness can be found in the smallest of things” printed in gold lettering. This is thoughtful and so many of our residents are excited to send their heart to their relatives.
Our home manager, Gillian, said “A lovely relative brought the handmade hearts in when her own husband was at the end of his life stating she thought it would comfort couples who couldn’t be together to know they were in each other’s hearts. We loved the idea and, using the cards she also made, sent a matching heart to loved ones at home. Relatives loved the idea and were thrilled to receive such a beautiful gift.”
