Lorraine 22nd Jun 2019 Activities Officer
Hi my name is Lorraine and I'm an activities officer in an age care facility in QLD Australia. I would love to know if anyone is interested in starting up pen pals? Our residents love writing letters and I think it would be great, especially the residents who don't enjoy joining in activities. I would love to hear from you if you would be interested in starting this activity. Thank you in advance.

Hi Lorraine, I'm from South Jersey, USA... I'm an activity aide at a 3 story rehab/long term care facility. I'm with the cognitive residents once a week doing a "Getting to Know You" club. For our summer "vacation " we are virtual traveling to a different country of each members choosing. Two folks did choose Australia! I'm sure my group would love to pen pal! Let me know if you're interested, if so I will give you my email, from there we can exchange addresses... Leslie Laurito
