Kindness is defined as doing something towards yourself and others, motivated by genuine desire to make a positive difference. Kindness is shown to increase self-esteem and mood, decrease stress levels, improve relationships, slow aging, and is accompanied by emotional warmth. Research shows kindness and mental health are deeply connected.
We at VITALIA Active Adult Community® – North Olmsted know that one act of kindness can lead to many more. Kindness is contagious and it begins with you!
To me, kindness means caring and compassion. Kindness is choosing to do something that helps others and putting other people’s needs before our own. Some ways that I encourage kindness and put a smile on someone’s face is by giving them a nice compliment or simply just saying hello.
I think we can inspire others to spread kindness by leading by example. We can improve someone’s quality of life with kindness by asking them to join our table for dinner or inviting them to join an activity.
Kindness is important to health and well-being. If everyone is kind to one another it improves our mental health. Kindness puts a smile on our face and encourages us to be more active in joining activities.
VITALIA Active Adult Community® – North Olmsted practices kindness each day with every resident, whether they live in Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Memory Care. Arrow Senior Living believes “Acts of Kindness can drive change in the world.” We hope kindness finds its way to and from you.

It reminds them to take their medication up to five times per day with audible and vibrating alarms. This device will allow […]
