Letters to senior

Project "Letter to Seniors"

As you may know, the UK has had almost a year of social distancing restrictions. The country is now on lockdown once again. These lockdown's have been difficult for everyone, but they have been particularly hard on care home residents. Because these elderly people are especially vulnerable, they have not been able to have family and friends to visit them. Many residents are struggling with loneliness. A 17 year old student Nina Anderson founded Community Senior Letters, a project that matches primary schools with care homes to provide human connection during lockdown.

Sending and receiving these letters helps to uplift spirits, ease stress and relax the mind. This allows hope and happiness to be brought to the elderly residents at care homes, and for them to form wonderful connections. Likewise, students are able to form friendships by unleashing their inner creativity as they send letters and drawings to the care homes, as well as relieving some boredom they may be feeling".

After hearing of this wonderful project, many students in Primary and Senior school wrote letters and drew pictures to send to the residents of Stirlings Care Home in the UK. Despite never having met these people, the students wanted to reach out to the residents, telling them about themselves, sharing their own experiences of lockdown and letting them know that they cared about them. I am sure that the letters and art work will put a smile on the residents' faces.
