Hamlets Choose Kindness

The Hamlets at Vernon is sharing their kindness with team members and residents by celebrating Choose Kindness - #teamhamlets. This fun day of wearing pink, sharing hugs, words of kindness, and the exciting intergenerational (kids with seniors) activities abound, is to show our support for Anti-Bullying Day & Pink Shirt Day.

The residents and team members are excited to share their passion for kindness and they are busy writing notes of kindness for one another, displaying their pink outfits, enjoying the Kalamalka Caring Clowns, and a huge Kindness cake that will be shared amongst all. The concept of #teamhamlets is to pull the residents and team members together as one family, one team. Mark Massar is the new General Manager at The Hamlets. “There is nothing better to hear comments from our residents and our team members how much they like being here and that they feel they are part of a family. We want the Hamlets to be a place that people want to come to, whether a resident or for people to work, and that they have a lot of fun being here and that they have a sense of belonging. That’s what the #teamhamlets embraces and represents”, says Mark.

The day also captures fun photos with funny quotes and some videos that will be displayed on social media to feature what #teamhamlets means to our residents and the team members. Choose Kindness Day at the Hamlets, is to share and remind people that by all of us in our workplace, our homes, our communities, our society, sharing kindness will make a better and happier circle of life for all to embrace.
