Residents at local assisted living center send Valentine’s Day cards to hospitalized patients at Tidelands Health

Patients hospitalized at Tidelands Health are feeling extra love this Valentine’s Day thanks to a kind gesture from residents of a local assisted living center.

Residents at Inlet Coastal Resort in Murrells Inlet spread their love through heartwarming messages in more than 60 Valentine’s Day cards for patients hospitalized at Tidelands Health. Each one is thoughtfully addressed to “someone special.”

Laura Cason, marketing director at Inlet Coastal Resort, drops off a basket of Valentine's Day cards for patients at Tidelands Health.“Our residents are always thinking of ways they can help others in their community,” said Laura Cason, marketing director at Inlet Coastal Resort. “With Valentine’s Day approaching, they want to spread love to those who might need it most right now. We hope these cards lift the spirits of patients at Tidelands Health.”

This isn’t the first time residents at the assisted living center have offered support to Tidelands Health patients. After COVID-19 began spreading in our community in the spring, residents at Inlet Coastal Resort poured their love into 100 get well cards for patients in Tidelands Health hospitals to help them feel love and support during their hospitalization.

“You may think a card is a small gesture, but it means the world to patients in our hospitals who are battling COVID-19 or working to recover from other medical challenges,” said Ashley Capps, vice president of nursing and operations at Tidelands Health. “The heartfelt cards from the residents at Inlet Coastal Resort truly brightened the day for our patients.”
