Garden View Care Center wants to thank everyone who entered our Hug A Granny promotion last month. We were happy to see so many people take part and show how they share the love with their loved ones.

We are pleased to announce Vicky Godwin as our Hug A Granny promotion winner! She has won a professional photography session and a beautiful floral bouquet for her granny.

All of your photos made us smile and showed just how important every hug is. When you entered your hug, we gave a hug to our Garden View residents. You truly helped us share the love throughout the contest.

Importance of touch

A hug may seem like a simple act, but studies have found that hugging someone offers many benefits. It can help increase self-confidence, build trust, encourage healthy interaction and boost overall well-being. Think about how you feel after you give or receive a hug. You probably feel pretty good, right? Hugging releases a hormone that promotes happiness and relaxation.

Experiencing contact from a friend, relative or caregiver can be very important to someone who may feel confused or isolated. When we share our hugs, we want to show our residents how much they mean to us.

Our Hug A Granny promotion also gave us the opportunity to honor the special memory of Myra, our dear resident who had recently passed away. It was our pleasure to keep her in our thoughts as we shared hugs with our residents.

Garden View believes in always delivering top-quality care. We know how important compassionate support is to your loved ones. Our staff is dedicated to helping every resident feel comfortable, secure and appreciated. We see ourselves as one big Garden View family.

We hope you will continue to share a hug with your granny and everyone you care about in your life. Every hug you give makes you a winner – every single day! Learn more about our Hug a Granny contest and take a look at all the great photo entries.
