I am loving the Golden Carers membership. I am finding great resources that I used on the first day of membership. The membership is of much value working as both an Activities Director, and also an Activities Consultant. I look forward to continuing to use the site and also the forum.

I am hoping you can get funding for stamps
Maybe you can have a small fundraiser yourself
Have you tried contacting any of the schools maybe the students can send letters or one big letter that you can share
I am glad things are working out for you
I was like you I was anxious to get things done
That quality can be good in bad
I hope things work out when you start writing letters
We had a monthly budget
I was contemplating connecting with a local high school and requesting that they write letters that I could periodically "post" in our garden mail box as a reward for "popping out to check the mail".
Lots of high schools have Community programs for their year 9 students and struggle to find ideas. I realise its not a pen pal system but it is some sort of connection in a manner our elderly may understand.
Has anyone else managed a mail box? I would really appreciate any advice.
Hi find that resident enjoy getting mail
I think they’ll like know that someone is thinking about them
Perhaps the students can just send cards for the season
For example Valentine’s Day is coming up
This would be a great opportunity for the residents and students alike to share valentine wishes
