Make this Thanksgiving extra special by starting a new tradition in your community: Express your gratitude for each resident with a quick note of thanks. Purchase or create small cards and ask staff members to help. Write each residents name on the outside of a note card. Ask staff members to each fill out a few cards with a heartfelt message that thanks a resident they know personally for something. Use the note cards as place cards during Thanksgiving dinner at your community.
The notes don’t have to be long or complicated, they can be as simple as:
Thank you for always smiling at me in the hall. You make my work life nicer.
Be kind, genuine, and thankful and you will absolutely touch hearts.
