Residents of Edward Moore House Residential Care Home in Gravesend were delighted to receive many letters and drawings from the community.
With visits currently on hold, residents of the Trinity Road care home were over the moon to receive some post from local children.
The residents wouldn't normally receive a handwritten letter, so there was quite a buzz when several letters dropped on the door mat.
School children wrote to the residents, telling them about themselves and sending well wishes for the future.
In addition to the letters, residents have been busy crafting some rainbows, which they displayed in the home’s windows, to brighten the day of those walking past.
General manager Christine Hutchinson said: “We’re very grateful school children have thought of us and want to support us during this difficult time.
"The letters are a great way for us to keep in touch with the community at a time when we unfortunately, can’t have visitors coming in, they really brightened up the residents’ day.
Residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore have also been using the ongoing emergency as an opportunity to go back to basics and write to their loved ones.
With visits also on hold at the Drewery Drive residential care home, residents decided to write, in addition to Skype and phone calls.
As well as writing to their families to update them on their wellbeing, residents were also incredibly grateful to have received some letters and drawings from pupils of Park Wood Schools Federation in Gillingham.
General manager Jackie Miles said: “Keeping the residents connected to their loved ones is a real priority for us at the moment, whilst visitors are unable to come in.
“We have used Skype and the phone, but we thought it’d be nice to send some old-fashioned letters.
"The residents really enjoyed writing them and particularly enjoyed reading the letters from the school children, they’ve sent some back and so we look forward to the response.”
