Finding joy through the chaos

COVID-19 has created a new normal for all of us, especially within the Nazareth Home community. For well over a month, we have been practicing social distancing and not allowing visitors to our campuses. While we find ourselves in less than perfect circumstances, the goodness of humans and their sweet spirits have poured out, giving us joy even through this chaos. 

Countless family members, neighbors, local businesses and volunteers have found creative and fun ways to warm the hearts of residents and staff. Here are just a few examples that we hope warm your heart, too!

Many family members have decorated the elder’s windows, posted items outside their window and brought signs of hope and love while they waved to their loved ones through the glass.

Donuts, coffee, lunch and snacks were sent to the staff and elders from family members, business partners and other local businesses,thanking the staff for their work and lifting the spirits of the elders.

Businesses like Home Instead Senior Care
sent the staff
COVID Coping Kits.

A staff member picked up Comfy Cow, a local ice cream parlor and a favorite of the elders, and brought yummy treats to the elders and staff at Nazareth Home Clifton.

 

Many cards of gratitude and encouragement have been received!

The staff has participated in Crazy Hair Day, and other fun spirit week activities to bring joy and smiles to all at Nazareth Home.

We are so grateful for all the love and support in our community!

Oscar Wilde once said, “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.” This could not be more true in this time of uncertainty. 

In this world, doing good is always welcomed. Let’s work together to be Healthy at Home while spreading our love and goodness to others.
