Residents at Shannon Court, in Hindhead, are sharing positive messages and advice with the local community in an effort to help boost morale and encourage kindness.
Like most other care homes, Shannon Court is closed to all but essential visitors because of the threat of Coronavirus to its residents.
Among the residents taking part is Leslie Elliot, aged 86, whose message read:
“Keep your head up, keep your heart strong.” He said: “It’s so important to keep a positive outlook at a time like this. And to spread a little kindness wherever you can.”
The Home’s Activities Coordinator, Sam Geddes, said:
“Our residents wanted to share some positive quotes in these difficult times and a lot of careful thought was put into choosing them. Our residents are part of a generation that has been through difficult times and they know better than most how positive thinking can help us all to get through the days ahead.”
“We’re doing everything we can to raise morale at the Home for staff and residents. Everyone is working harder than ever, but we have an amazing team spirit here, which keeps everyone going.”
