A newsletter template has just been added for August 2020 in word format. Please let us know if a monthly newsletter template would be helpful to you, and we will continue releasing new samples.
Donielle 13th Jun 2020 Activities Coordinator
I am new to Golden Cares, is there a newsletter that is already completed for each month that we just add our own content/ articles? I have only found one that is downloaded with a blank outline dated 2009. I had used another company prior that provided a completed monthly newsletter and you could personalize and add articles. Thank you

Hi Donielle, we don't currently have monthly templates but this is something we would be happy to provide. We are thinking that a monthly word document might be the way to go? Let me know your thoughts.

Hi Vicky, you may find some inspiration and ideas on this link of a newsletter template. Regarding gathering information: ask staff and clients relatives to contribute with dates of anniversaries, new birth, and engagement, community news, a profile of a resident, and so on. The more you make the easier it gets. All the best of luck!

Okay, I just signed on for goldencarers and I haven't stopped printing up activities. I work as a PCA in assisted living facility and have done the calender for 9 yrs. We , the staff, do all our activities. So excited about this . I, like others have been running out of new ideas. And it's my job to keep the residents coming out to join in. The newsletter sounds Great as well... So glad I came across your program

I am introducing a facility newsletter and would love some ideas/examples to help get me started
Solange 31st May 2018 Diversional Therapist
Hi Nicala, a facility's newsletter is such fun; I was responsible for one for many years. The newsletter should be a combined effort involving residents and staff. Apart from the usual, Birthdays, Holidays and Events, you can ask a Lifestyle colleague to write a small article: 'The Month in Review' for instance with a couple of photos of residents doing activities. Also, insert some jokes or riddles (or both). Ask residents and staff to contribute, for instance, elect a 'Resident of the Month' and 'Employee of the Month'. Write short biographies of residents, staff and volunteers, share the birth of staff's babies, weddings and engagements.

many thanks Solange

Kate 11th Feb 2013 leisure&Lifestyle assistant
new ideas here for our newsletter, thankyou. I also include other information from our Council calendar. eg. festivals, days or weeks of recognition. Your local newspapers are also handy resources. Residents enjoy reading whats going on in their community and some arrange family to take them to some events. kathy

Hi Maria,

Try the pdf version that should open for you even if you don't have the software to open the editable publisher version.

Michele 14th Aug 2012 Activities Co-ordinator
Hi Solange,
I cannot open this file, could we please have a PDF file version if possible.


talita 21st Aug 2012
Hi Michele,

I have added a PDF version of the newsletter template.
The publisher version will allow you to edit within the template to create and publish your own newsletters.
Graciela 16th Sep 2010 Lifestyle & Volunteer Team Leader
There is any chance that we can have the document in Adobe Reader, at least as a example.
Solange 28th Jan 2010 Diversional Therapist
This document is a Microsoft Publisher 98 file. You should be able to open if you have Microsoft Publisher 98 (or a more recent version) installed on your computer.

Belinda 10th Oct 2009 Diversional Therapist
what version do you need to use to open this publisher file!
I have been writing the newsletter for my facility for the past 18 mths and the residents cant wait till "their magazine" comes out each month. Newsletters are definately an asset to any faility.
