    Being a Pen Pal for the Elderly

    Do any of you have elderly family members who are very isolated?

    If you would like to PM to me their name, their address, I can begin (for those of you interested) a process for one of us here on the forum to to send your loved one a card, a photo, a few kind words, a drawing from a child.

    1. So if you have a loved one that would enjoy a card or note etc, please send me their name and address!

    2. If you are interested in sending one of these isolated elderly folks a card or a note etc...Please PM me that you are interested and as soon as I get a loved one's name and address I will forward to you.

    No sending $ or gifts
    No sending overly words that would add to the anxiety

    Maybe just a few words that say. (example) ........Hi I am an forum friend. Just wanted to say hello and wish you well. I know we are so looking forward to our world getting back to normal and that hopefully will be very soon. Please stay well and be happy!

    thanks. Andrea James

    Awesome Idea! I work at a Council on Aging and this is one part of this whole COVID 19 we are worried about. Seniors who are lonely, we all make phone calls bi-weekly to check-in see if they need lunches delivered, how they are and just to say hello! I just emailed our social worker who has a Pen Pal Club at the center to see if this is something we can do and share names. I hope she says YES!

    What a special service to offer
