I wondered if anyone would like to start a pen pal group between my facility and yours. We are located in Australia in Victoria. So even if someone from Australia wants to do it let me know please

If I can get it approved from facility, I would love to pen pal from our Cherished Memories Unit. It is made up of residents suffering with Alzheimer's and dementia. We could share artwork with you, and I can transcript for them and reply. We would love to learn about your country and see some photos as we are in the United States and could share some of our beautiful country as well. Please let me know if you are interested. Thank you.

We started one but many of the residents didn't get letters back and some were disappointed.
We are a long term care facility in Canada. Would love to try again.

We are currently doing this with a local school. The residents LOVE getting cute letters from the 1st & 2nd grade students. And their teacher has told me that the kids love is so much as well. We are going to plan a picnic in May so everyone can meet each other.
