Due to COVID-19 people are unable to visit our local long term care facilities. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t stay in touch. Courtyard Village and the Petersen Healthcare family of local long term care facilities are accepting cards and letters. WKEI spoke with representatives of Petersen Healthcare and they said cards and letters for residents in care are welcome. Courtyard Village and each of the Petersen Healthcare facilities have online portals where you can send messages of encouragement to seniors who are safely at home there.
Contact seniors at Petersen Healthcare by following links below. You can send uplifting emails or you can mail letters to the residents. Visit the Petersen Healthcare website for addresses or the email form.
