Create a Valentine’s Card

A caregiver gives a valentine to a happy senior woman
Whether it’s to your grandmother or the friendly greeter at your local grocer, show you care this Valentine’s Day by giving a thoughtful and loving card or pen pal letter to a senior in your life.

Did you know....

Thoughtful notes not only show you care, but also remind older adults who may be socially isolated that they are not alone.

They are also a well-received act of kindness. A recent Ready to Care survey of seniors 75+ found that 85% thought a letter or greeting card was a very meaningful gesture. 

Here are three other important reasons to send a card or letter this week:

Others haven’t – You may be the other only person to send someone a message of love.

They may be isolated – Remind a senior that humanity and compassion still exist.

It feels great – Acts of kindness are proven to not only benefit those on the receiving end, but also the one doing them.
