Runwood Homes marks National Day of Reflection
On the 23rd of March, care homes across the Runwood Homes Group marked National Day of Reflection, a day to connect, to reflect and to show support for one another as we remember those no longer with us.
Marie Curie’s National Day of Reflection marks the anniversary of the first Covid-19 lockdown, and it is a day to show support to those who lost loved ones during this time.
To show support, individuals, communities and organisations were encouraged to join in on a minute’s silence at noon for a nationwide moment of reflection, to shine a light, display a daffodil or create a wall of reflection.
Home teams and residents chose the ways they wished to show their support. At Highview Lodge, in Hemel Hempstead, residents helped to make a ‘Reflection Day’ sign, and the team gathered outside for the minutes silence with the beautiful sign in hand.
Humfrey Lodge, in Thaxted, Essex, residents made a lovely daffodil wreath to lay in their garden, before standing together for the minute of silence.
Residents ay Jubilee Court, in Hucknall, went to check on the daffodils in their garden and were pleased to see them flowering. With such lovely weather, the group decided to have a few minutes of reflection in their garden, right by their daffodils.
In Worksop, Nottinghamshire, Westwood care home hosted a lovely coffee morning, where staff and residents took a quiet moment to reflect and to remember.
Runwood Homes spokesperson said:
“National Day of Reflection is an important day, and residents across the Runwood Homes Group were glad that they could take the time to recognise and take part in it together, offering opportunity for quiet reflection, connection and meaningful conversations with one another.”
