In March 2021, we recognized the 1-year anniversary of COVID-19 entering long-term care (LTC) homes and taking the life of its first beloved resident. In an effort to mark these significant milestones and demonstrate a collective gesture of grief, love, and hope, OARC launched the Hopeful Hearts Campaign.
Since the early days of the pandemic, national COVID-19 campaigns have featured images of illuminated hearts and other messages of support in the windows of private residences and various healthcare settings. OARC invites you to build upon this powerful movement and join our #HopefulHeartsLTC campaign. Together we mourn, and together we move forward in love and hope. We encourage you to work in partnership with residents, families and LTC teams to create your own unique heart display in your home or in resident rooms. Hearts can be showcased on a wall, in a window, or create a three-dimensional display.
