Make someone’s day, draw for Wall Heart.
NovaCare are a Hunter based, not for profit organisation recognised in excellence in aged and community services. Our service is focused on a whole of life approach for home, health and happiness and to keep our consumers connected with their community to help them to remain living independently at home. Novacare championed the Wall Heart program to keep the community spirit going and bring the community together. NovaCare launched a social media campaign that highlighted the effect COVID was having on thousands of people living in our community.
When COVID hit people over 65 were plunged into self-isolation, cut off and lonely and uncertain about the future. Without familiar outings and no visitors, older people needed to feel supported and connected to their communities more than ever.
Wall Heart is an initiative that helps fill the lives of older people with love, colour and pictures. NovaCare asked the wider community, to help spread some joy. The community came together and we received hundreds of beautiful artworks from local schools, preschools and the community that we delivered to the most vulnerable people by our support workers.
The pictures were lovingly received as we surprised and delighted as many people as we could.
