Heol Don Bupa Care Home in Cardiff is asking the local community to send in messages of yuletide cheer to residents and staff this Christmas.

Receiving a Christmas card is a great way to boost morale, well-being and a sense of belonging, which is why the Bupa care home team is calling on its local community to help spread some joy and rally a sense of togetherness during the festive period.

Hoping to make residents feel more connected to their local community, the cards received will be opened and placed around the home for everyone to read and enjoy. When asked what it means to care home residents to receive a Christmas card, Sharon Roberts, Home Manager at Heol Don Bupa Care Home, commented: “Sending and receiving cards is a tradition that many of our residents love, so this Christmas we wanted to make them feel extra special by showering them in cards from people from all walks of life.”

Sharon continued: “We know that receiving a card full of festive well wishes would really mean the world to our residents this year. It’s a small gesture of kindness which would have such a positive impact, providing them with a great sense of warmth, support, and togetherness – the ultimate definition of festive cheer!”
