We were thrilled to have United Way volunteers at HeartLine last Saturday, October 15th for United Way Day of Caring! Volunteers worked to clean and restore the flower beds and plantings in our courtyard and left it looking MUCH better than they found it! It was nice to be appreciated for our efforts in the community and pampered with a clean courtyard!
One of the items we stress at HeartLine, especially to our call specialists, is the idea of self care. In any job or position that calls for the care of others, it’s important for the care provider to take time and actively restore his or her ability to do their caring jobs well. To help in this endeavor, we plan numerous self care and organzied fun activites for the staff at HeartLine. Today we offer a few images to give you a glimpse into this self care. These images are from HeartLine’s Cinco de Mayo party and a recent organized fun called the Spooky Lego Build. Lego scenes are depictions of class horror stories such as Frankenstein, The Birds, Hansel and Gretel, and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
Whether you are in a helping profession or not, take some time to engage in a least one act of self care each day, whether it’s large or small. Believe us, you’ll be glad you did.
