World Kindness Day: Nice Vs. Kind

World Kindness Day: Nice vs. Kind

Today is World Kindness Day. Kindness is a core value of Ohio’s Hospice, and it is at the heart of everything we do. 

Throughout the month of November, we are celebrating Kindvember™. It is a month to recognize and honor the importance of kindness in our mission and to each other as we work to provide superior care and superior services to patients and families. 
 
As we work to Scatter Kindness™ with our patients, families, each other and community, we reflect on the differences between being nice versus being kind. Often, these two words are used interchangeably. However, they are quite different from each other.  

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, nice is defined as polite, agreeable or appropriate. Nice is interpreted as doing something because it’s expected of you or doing something to create a good impression because you expect something in return later. 

In contrast, kind is defined as a sympathetic or helpful nature. Kindness is intentional and unconditional; it is layered and requires empathy. By offering kindness, you do so without expecting anything in return. 

Every day, we have the privilege of serving patients and families, many in their most vulnerable moments. We know that showing kindness, empathy and compassion during these difficult times makes a difference.  

Our mission is to celebrate the lives of those we have the privilege of serving by providing superior care and superior services to each patient and family. It is our honor to serve them with kindness and support during some of life’s most difficult moments.
