Christmas message exchange launched in care homes

You can now send a festive message to care home residents who may be feeling lonely this Christmas. 

A new Christmas message exchange has been launched by Country Court care homes. 

Rose Lodge care home in Market Deeping and Tallington Lodge care home in Stamford, are two of the 33 care homes across the UK taking part. 

The message exchange will share festive messages to residents within these care homes during the Christmas period. 

Alykhan Kachra, Co-CEO of Country Court said: "2020 has not been an easy year for older people, especially with not being able to see loved ones as much as they would like.

"This Christmas will not be the same celebration that our residents usually enjoy, but staff are already going above and beyond to make the festive season as special as possible."

To get involved, you can send a Christmas card or record a video message to send. The video message can be songs, music or a festive message. 

The residents will then send cards and messages back.

The Christmas period is looking very different in care homes this year due to COVID-19.

They are usually filled with entertainers, along with visits from local schools to sing carols and chat over cups of tea and mince pies, and families and local people would be enjoying Christmas events.

This year, festivity like this cannot go ahead.

Country Court emphasises that this year, more than ever, care home residents would love to exchange Christmas messages and festive wishes with local people.

When sending messages people should include their name, organisation (if relevant), contact details and name of their nearest Country Court care home. 

Video messages can be sent via WhatsApp to 07872542369.

To get involved or for more information contact marketing@countrycourtcare.com.
