Multi-award-winning care provider, Hallmark Care Homes has buried time capsules at all of its care homes to mark the organisation’s 25th anniversary.
The family-run group, which was established in 1997 and has since cared for over 10,000 residents buried the time capsules for future generations to dig up last week.
During the celebratory events, residents and team members at the residential, nursing and dementia homes buried the time capsules which included newspaper cuttings, photos, coins, resident poems, letters from relatives and collaborative work with local schools in line with the businesses five values; Growth, Openness, Togetherness, Individuality and Quality.
As part of the special events, residents also enjoyed live entertainment and a special cake made by the home’s dedicated kitchen teams.
They were joined for the occasion by Hallmark Care Homes’ Chairman Avnish Goyal, Managing Director Aneurin Brown and the senior leadership team who thanked the team and made an 800-mile trip to visit all of the company’s 22 care homes in one week.
Managing Director of Hallmark Care Homes, Aneurin Brown said: “It was lovely to mark our 25th anniversary as a business and see everyone joining in with something that explains the world as we see it right now.
“A special plaque has been installed to mark the point where the time capsule is buried and we hope in 25 years when it is dug up, future generations can discover and learn from it.”
Chair of Hallmark Care Homes, Avnish Goyal added: “I am so thankful and proud of the teams for everything they have achieved over the past 25 years. The road trip was a great opportunity to unite and acknowledge our caring and committed team who go above and beyond daily to ensure that residents have an amazing quality of life.”
