We encourage the Butterfly Effect in our nursing home

What is the Butterfly effect?

“the butterfly effect is used to describe the idea that the flap of a butterfly wing on one side of the world can cause a tsunami on the other side of the planet. So it i believe that one small act of kindness (can be as simple as a hug or a smile) can change someones day and even the direction of their life. Its all about people caring for people and just simply being nice to people”
