In August 2018 we ran our very successful ‘Postcards to home’ project in conjunction with Oulton Manor Care Home and Dementia Friendly Rothwell.
Residents in the LS26 area were invited to send a postcard from their holiday destination back to the home with a brief message for the residents to read. The response was overwhelming and the home received over 100 postcards.
To continue the project we are inviting people to not only keep sending postcards, but consider sending a Christmas Card, New Year Greeting or when the time comes, an Easter card.
We would also like people to consider sending a card to a different home, there are lots of care homes in the LS26 and surrounding area and the residents would all be equally grateful on receiving a holiday postcard, Christmas Card or any type of correspondance.
Here is a list of care homes in the LS26 locality:
