Celebrating 40 years of Dovehaven

Sharing the birthday joy: Dovehaven commemorates 40th birthday with 40 Acts of Kindness

Dovehaven Care Homes has carried out 40 Acts of Kindness to commemorate 40 years of care excellence. Across our network of 21 Care Homes around the North West of England, the Dovehaven team have carried out 40 random acts of kindness to celebrate 40 years of the business and say thank you to all the local communities and businesses who have helped us along the way.

Throughout October, the care staff and residents in Dovehaven Care Homes have been carrying out special acts of kindness, that have then been recorded on social media. We set out to perform 40 Acts of Kindness, but our team have exceeded expectations with the final ‘Kindness Counter’ recording 46 acts of kindness carried out throughout the month.

The acts of kindness came in all shapes and sizes and were carried out by both team members, senior leaders and residents. Some acts of kindness included collecting hampers for local charities and food banks, doing a litter pick, donating clothes to homeless shelters, and gifting chocolates and flowers to friends and relatives that visited the homes.

As well as acts of kindness, we’ve hosted a range of exciting events during their birthday celebration month. Residents and staff were invited every Friday during October to join a special video call, where events such as birthday bingo and a virtual cocktail party took place.

We opened our first care home, Dovehaven Residential Home in 1983 and since then the business has grown to more than 20 Care Homes around the North West. We offer a wide variety of elderly care including dementia, residential, and complex health care.

Dovehaven’s birthday celebrations come at a time of transformation and growth for the company. New home acquisitions will see us grow even further in the coming months.
