Would you like to send a picture and short letter to one of our older participants to show we are thinking of them during this time?
As many of you know, we run our Animals and the Outdoors group on a Friday for people with dementia and their carers. Unfortunately, they are not able to come in at the moment - just like all our learners - so we thought it would be nice to start up a Pen Pal scheme where our young learners can send pictures and/or letters to our older participants and potentially get one back in return!
Lots of people are feeling socially isolated at the moment especially those who are elderly or vulnerable. Making connections with others can be a way of relieving this isolation.
On our web site we will soon put up a pen pal letter template for you to fill in and send back to us if you would like to take part in this. We will then forward it on. You might just want to draw a picture and send it to us - that will be fantastic too! They can be sent to us by post (our address is on the web site) or scanned in and emailed to us at our usual email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care x
