The Value of Giving – Rediscovering Purpose
More than 1,000 residents in 60 facilities operated by Rockport Healthcare Services are currently participating in the “Heart to Serve” program. The work helps them discover that they remain a valued part of society, and can contribute to a cause. Instead of always being on the receiving end, the activity allows residents to give and find their way back to a place where they can experience a sense of self-worth.
Provided with an opportunity to help others, residents often feel a deep sense of satisfaction. It has allowed them to experience the joy of having someone genuinely say, “thank you.”
