As a result of the risks posed by the Coronavirus, visitors, including family and friends, are restricted from to A.G. Rhodes. Our visitors, volunteers, programs and activities are incredibly important components of our residents’ daily lives so we’re exploring creative ways to keep offering meaningful activities and opportunities to connect with the community while reducing the risk of exposure to illness.

Letters and Words of Encouragement

One way you can help is by mailing notes, letters and cards of appreciation to our residents. You may mail them to the activities departments of one or all of our three locations listed below, and we will distribute them. 

You can also send your notes and letters via email for quicker receipt. Activity staff will print your emails so be mindful of attachments. Please include which home, and if you are sending to an individual resident, be sure to specify a resident’s name. Email: waystohelp@agrhodes.org.

Mail only—please do not drop off letters, cards or other items:

Activity Supplies & Games

During this time, our residents are spending a lot of their day by themselves or with a limited number of other residents. There is need for additional activity supplies and games so residents have more options to help reduce boredom and loneliness. We have created Amazon Wish Lists for each home if you would like to send them something. Click on an Amazon wish list for one or more of our homes below and your order will go directly to Activity Staff who will distribute them…and then let the fun begin!

Words of Encouragement for Staff

Our staff are working extremely hard under very difficult circumstances as they take care of our residents and keep them safe. We are so fortunate to have such dedicated, loving staff but even they could use some encouraging words or cards (or even flowers too!) to let them know their work is appreciated. Any cards or flowers to staff can be sent to the homes using the mailing addresses above.

According to the World Health Organization, it is safe to receive a package from areas where COVID-19 has been reported.
