Gracewell of Fareham residents buried a time capsule to commemorate the National Day of Reflection and remember everything they have overcome in the past year.
On 23 March, the care home had a small ceremony with residents and team members, with an emotional and inspirational speech from Gracewell of Fareham’s General Manager, Jacqui Hampton.
The buried time capsule contained Gracewell of Fareham’s 2020 newsletters, face masks, sanitisers, We Care badges, t-shirts with ‘thanks care workers’ on, poems and letters from Gracewell of Fareham’s residents and a ‘Book of Reflection’ – made from the contributions of everyone at the home. The time capsule was buried in the home’s beautiful, landscaped gardens under a stone plaque with the Clap for Carers engraved.
Jessica Wooldridge, Home Admissions Advisor at Gracewell of Fareham, said:
“The National Day of Reflection was very emotional, and we all took some time to reflect on everything we have overcome and achieved throughout the past year. It meant a lot to everyone to commemorate friends and family we have lost and honour their memory with this special ceremony.
“Covid-19 has been very challenging for all of us, but as we look to come out the other side, we are more hopeful than ever for the future!”
