“It’s been lovely helping to create connections and friendships between our homes and to see the joy this has brought to our residents"

Here at The Lawns Care Home we’ve been busy making new friends at other brighterkind homes by sending them postcards with all our news.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we launched a Postcard Pals initiative and members of our community sent in pictures and letters to help keep our residents cheery and connected.  

Now we are sending ‘Hello’ postcards to residents at our sister homes to make new friends and find shared interests and connections to local places and we’ve already had lots of replies!

Magic Moments Club Coordinator Gez said, “It’s been lovely helping to create connections and friendships between our homes and to see the joy this has brought to our residents. Some of them haven’t written a letter for a long time and found they really enjoyed it. We are even planning to meet our new pals once life gets back to normal again.”

The Lawns Care Home is located in Oadby, Leicestershire and provides residential care and respite care.
