Garden View Care Center believes that hugging is a wonderful way to demonstrate how much we care for about residents. Enter our Hug A Granny promotion to show how you share the love with your granny and other older people who are special to you.

Take a selfie of you and your granny or another older relative, friend or neighbor hugging each other. Share the love with that special person and then share your photo with us between now and November 30.

Every hug you give is a hug we can share with a Garden View resident. Your photo will also be entered in our contest for a chance to win a professional photography session and a beautiful floral bouquet for your granny!

Benefits of hugs

Did you know that everyone can benefit from more hugs? Ongoing research and medical studies have found that hugs can actually be good for your health. Hugging someone can help reduce stress levels, may lower heart rate and blood pressure and can improve a bad mood and offer a sense of comfort.

Garden View believes in providing the best level of care possible. Communicating with a hug is another way we can deliver on our promise of outstanding care to all of our residents.

For Myra

Our Hug a Granny contest is our way of honoring the memory of Myra, our dear resident who recently passed away. Myra had a positive energy and fun-loving spirit, which she shared with everyone she met at Garden View. She always had a bowl of candy and a kind word for every staff member.

Before she passed away, she asked her husband to give a token of her love to all of those who had touch her life at Garden View. Her kind, thoughtful and loving presence is greatly missed by her devoted family and everyone at Garden View.
