As a result of Covid-19, we’ve had to cancel our typical Day of Caring. Also because of this global pandemic, individuals in nursing homes and care homes are not able to have friends and family visit them at this time. Let’s show these residents that they’re not alone and that we’re thinking of them. We’re encouraging you and your family, especially children, to write letters or cards. Let the residents know that you care, tell them a joke or a funny story, or draw pictures. If you want, you can specify if it’s for a “Man” or “Woman”. Also, large print would be appreciated by many. The staff at these homes will distribute these letters, cards, and pictures to their residents. If you mail these within Estevan, no postage is needed as long as you put “Days of Caring” above the name.and address of the seniors home you’re sending it to

Thanks, Canada Post for helping our community through this!
