Canterbury Care Home Residents Keep in Touch with Handmade Christmas Cards

With Christmas cards meaning more than ever this year, residents of Connors House Residential Care Home in Canterbury decided to make their own.

Keeping in touch is always important but with the ongoing pandemic and the upcoming festivities just around the corner, we’re all looking for new ways to show our loved ones that we’re thinking of them.

Armed with their craft box and plenty of festive coloured card and PVA, residents of the Craddock Road residential care home had the great idea to make some cards for their loved ones, who they may not be able to see as much this year.

The creative residents embraced their inner artists as they spent a morning making cards and talking about their fondest memories of Christmas and the traditions they enjoy most.

Christine Devlin, Home Manager of Connors House said: “At this time of year when we would usually be spending lots of time with loved ones, it is so important that we find new ways to keep in touch and show our families we love them.

“We have lots planned over the Christmas period including letters, cards, video calls and safe visits in our festive visitors booth to ensure we can do just that!”
