We like to take part in regular charity activities at Lovett Care Homes. It gives residents, their families and friends and care home staff something to look forward to. Taking part in fundraising events is a lot of fun, usually involves lots of tasty food, including cake and biscuits! So, what’s not to like??

The Benefits of Charitable Activities in Our Care Homes

Such activities raise valuable money for worthwhile causes outside of our care homes. Some are local to Stoke on Trent while others are nationally recognised charities. Apart from those whom the charity helps, there are some very real benefits to the residents of Goldendale House and Hilton House. Here’s how taking part and the act of giving helps those associated with Lovett Care Homes. Giving Makes People Feel Good Participating in charitable activities releases the “feel good” hormones of serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin. Regions in the brain associated with pleasure, trust and connection with other people are activated by these endorphins. Reduces Stress and Depression Being involved with charity events creates a sense of community and gives an optimistic focus. The positive emotions that result in helping to reduce anxiety, stress, and depression. Helps People to Live Longer It is proven that those who are charitable live longer and more fulfilled lives. We aim for all residents to feel that they are living an enjoyable life with a sense of purpose. Improved Self Esteem and Social Connection Taking part in charitable activities, baking collectively, enjoying food and drink together, and partaking in raffles have benefits to the individual and the group. Social interaction and links are fostered, and everyone can share a sense of achievement through fundraising.
