Letters Brighten Care Home Residents’ Day During Lockdown

Residents of Edward Moore House Residential Care Home in Gravesend were delighted to receive so many letters and drawings from the local community.

With visits currently on hold due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, residents of the Trinity Road care home were over the moon to receive some post from local children.

It’s been quite some time since our residents would have received a handwritten letter, so there was quite a buzz in the home when an abundance of letters dropped on the door mat. The local school children wrote to the residents, telling them about themselves and sending well wishes for the future.

In addition to the letters, residents have been busy crafting some rainbows, which they displayed in the home’s windows, to brighten the day of those walking past.

Christine Hutchinson, General Manager of Edward Moore House said: “We’re very grateful that local school children have thought of us and want to support us during this difficult time. The letters are a great way for us to keep in touch with the community at a time when we unfortunately, can’t have visitors coming in, they really brightened up the residents’ day.”
