As part of its 40th birthday celebrations, Southport-based Care Home Group Dovehaven has carried out over 40 Acts of Kindness throughout the month of October. 

Across its network of 21 care homes around the North West of England, the Dovehaven team has carried out 40 random acts of kindness to commemorate 40 years of business.

Dovehaven opened its first Care Home, Dovehaven Residential Home in 1983 and since then has grown to more than 20 Care Homes around the North West. 

It offers a wide variety of elderly care including dementia, residential, and complex health care. 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. 

The group set out to perform 40 Acts of Kindness, but has exceeded expectations with the final ‘Kindness Counter’ recording 46 acts of kindness 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, Dovehaven hosted a range of exciting events during its 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. 

Dovehaven’s birthday celebrations come at a time of transformation and growth for the company. 

New home acquisitions will see the Care Home Group grow even further in the coming months.
