Why not write a letter to a lonely resident in care home?

Posted onPosted on 23rd Mar

If you are bored while self-isolating or just feeling the need to spread some joy, why not consider writing letters to residents of care homes, most of whom are without visitors while their family and friends stay away amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

The manager of one nursing home has invited people to send post to stave off loneliness in the people who live there.

“My residents would love to receive a letter. Remember those? Get writing,” she wrote.

Contact your local care home or nursing home to see if they would welcome some positive post in the coming weeks.
