Hi Nadine,
We were asked to do the same. Are there any other homes in your community? if so the letters could be divided between homes to share the love. Your residents could respond to a few instead of many. I too am the only Activity staff in our building. We are pen pals with 45 students and all seniors independently write their own letter/cards/coloring pages to their assigned student usually twice per month, I assist 6 with their replies. I set a date and time for when the letters are completed and then the school picks them up to deliver to the students. This program works very well, with little coordination. The biggest hurdle is finding seniors who are interested in being a pen pal. other projects that also work are seasonal coloring pages or classroom art. I wish you luck!

Hello I am looking to set up a pen pal service for my residents, I am an activities coordinator at a retirement extra care facility in the UK. I have residents aged 50-87. At Huntley Place we have residents that are very independent and some that need a lot of care needs. I think starting this now with the pandemic happening will bring back the community spirit and join different parts of the world together. I have some residents that would like individual pen pals and some of the residents that would be happy to send a group letter. If you are interested please contact me on [email protected] We are happy for anywhere in the world or even in the UK.

How to Start a Pen Pal Program for Seniors

Alison 25th Jan 2021 Lifestyles Assistant

Forum

Hi everyone,
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.
Thanks

I won't be able to do pen pal with school children right now, but I like the one big letter idea. I work for the city, so I should be able to get a P.O. for stamps. This is just taking longer than I like, but that's on me. I like to get things done faster than I should. It's good for me to slow down;)

I'm still working on this Pen Pal thing. I've been calling Activity Directors at nursing homes and assisted living facilities to see if there is an interest. There is, but I'm also stuck on mode of transportation. I also can't figure out how to connect the people with each other. Most are not internet savvy or have smart phones. My research so far shows others doing this are connecting on fb or instagram. I feel stuck:( I believe I will be able to get funding for stamps tho:)

Hi Jan from Oklahoma. I was wondering what your mode of transportation for letters? I want to start a pen pal group, but I know many of the folks I serve would not be able to afford stamps. I was thinking of doing a pick up drop off. We would start off local. Just curious on all thoughts of this.

Hi! Does your facility allow pets? We have had employees (my Activities Coordinator) bring her dog in and do room visits with her to those residents who don't really come out for any of the programs. The residents really seemed to enjoy the pet visit. Pre COVID we had Pets on Wheels come in and do visits, but they didn't go to individual room.

Would any of the loners be interested in a pen pal program? We did one before that went really well. Or would any of them be interested in a service type project? Putting together care packages/writing notes for service workers?

Good luck! :)

Thanks Natalie, I am going to try the library in a town near here and see what they have.
It turned out that one of my ladies met her late husband through a pen pal scheme.
Another lady remembered going to the post office every week to collect some money 'without that trip to the post office I would have not been able to feed my children' she recalled.
They all recalled lessons at school where they were taught the format of a letter etc.
We spoke about writing to a family member and telling them we were expecting a new baby, then I gave them a parcel to open that contained a new babies knitted jacket, bootees, bonnet and mittens. It was quite an emotional but enjoyable session.

Thanks Jean,
looking forward to some photos and tips to brighten up our residents days. I have already seen the impact this is having on some of our residents and it’s heartbreaking. Now more than ever we need to step up and be there for them. I’m Looking forward to seeing everyone’s new ideas.

I’m putting together display folders for each resident with pictures of their loved ones, events they have attended, things they have been doing & more.
We already have a Pen Pal program with our local school, which continued today (letters were dropped off) but with the closures this may need to pause. So in light of that I will be implementing a regular mail service between family members and residents. This will hopefully stimulate their minds, promote happiness and keep families connected. These can be simple cards or letters either way they will be staying connected to loved ones.
I will be looking into setting up a Skype account to help with face to face communication (from a distance).

As most of our external services have been postponed I have contacted contacted local parishes and some are going online. Which will hopefully provide the religious connection.
So this may be something happening in your area.
We will be implementing smaller groups with different stations.

Looking at any suggestions ❤️

Live smart and stay safe.

Hi all,

Does anyone else work in a hospital? I work in a large acute hospital in London. Most patients are here for a short time (days, weeks) with some here for months awaiting a care home. I thought it may be nice if anyone else works in a hospital with patients in awaiting a placement to start a pen pal service? It may just be a couple of patients at a time who would be interested. I wondered if it would be something we could continue when the patient goes to the care home. This would be a source of continuity particuarly for patients without loved ones.

If anyone is interested please let me know.

Thank you, Katie

Hello ALL.

I am located in the United States, in Chicago, IL, and am a consultant to nursing home activity departments. I was talking to the administrator in one of my communities and we were discussing the idea of a "pen pal" opportunity for the residents. I immediately thought of golden carers and how cool it would be to develop a relationship with a community in another country.

i suppose the first question would be ... is there any interest? is there a community out there outside of the United States that might be interested in making a connection with a long term care community in the United States?

I look forward to hearing from any of you who might want to discuss what i am hoping could develop into something really cool.

Looking forward to a reply...Courtney Castillo, CTRS
