COVID-19 continues to present unique challenges and while we still don’t have volunteer opportunities inside our homes, our volunteer community has been so creative in engaging with and supporting elders and staff from a distance. Our visitors, volunteers, programs and activities are incredibly important components of our residents’ daily lives and we continue to explore creative ways to keep offering meaningful activities and opportunities to connect with the community while reducing the risk of exposure to illness.

Letters, Cards, Pictures, Drawings, Videos of Encouragement

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

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 to let them know their work is appreciated. Please mail your letters of encouragement to the addresses above, or you can email them to

Resources for Your Family

During these uncertain times, we have been so touched and encouraged by how the community is finding ways to help, stay connected, and be more reflective. The Life Story Worksheet below is a resource we use to learn more about new residents when they come to our homes. We would love to share it with you as a guide to learn more about your own older loved ones. Our elders have such rich histories and collective wisdom, and we always love hearing their stories. We hope you will take this opportunity to sit down (perhaps virtually) with someone and have the same enriching experience. And you may be surprised at what you discover!
