Senior Care

Senior Pen Pal Program

West Central’s Senior Care found a way to encourage safe socialization during the midst of a pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic enhanced the isolation and loneliness that many seniors experience.  Senior Care Pen Pals are matched with other seniors that have similar likes and hobbies.   Writing kits are provided and include all the necessary items to become successful writing companions.  

 Kits include: 

  • stationery
  • note cards
  • all occasion greeting cards
  • ink pens
  • motivational quotes to share
  • and postage stamps.   

 

If you are 65 and older and are interested in learning how to become a Senior Care Pen Pal, please contact Senior Care staff  at 660-476-2185.
