Care for the elderly in Northumberland.

Knitted hearts help our residents and their families

By 3rd June, 2020 News Comments Off

Our volunteers have knitted and crocheted over 30 little pairs of hearts, with the aim of giving one of each pair to our resident, and sending another to their families, as an idea to help them and their loved ones manage the pain of separation over lockdown.

Over 15 of our residents were keen to join in and we visited their rooms so they could choose a pair of hearts.

The knitted hearts have now been posted to families, and includes a small message from our staff and management – we hope you enjoy receiving them!

(The message we sent each of the families

“We hope that this might bring a smile to your family during this difficult time. The staff are also sending our love to you and to reassure you that we are doing our utmost to make sure your loved one is safe and happy”.)
