During this time of preventative lockdown, the clients at Arcare Oatlands have been missing their weekly visits from our little pre-school friends at Headstart Early Learning Oatlands. So they decided to become pen pals!
The Lifestyle team thought it would be a great idea to create a Book of Memories and write notes to the children.
In return, the children have drawn beautiful pictures and written notes on the back for the clients, who were delighted to receive the gorgeous messages.
‘This is just precious; I miss them so much!’ Doreen said.
The joy and laughter the young children’s letters and pictures bring to the clients is beautiful to witness.
We look forward to sending more notes back and forth with the children and to ensure this beautiful connection is not lost.
‘I can’t wait to see their happy faces again and give them a big hug,’ Nancy shared.
