Pen pals for seniors

Be a pen pal for a senior citizen

Loneliness is one of the biggest challenges seniors face. Not only does it affect their mental health, but studies show it affects their physical health as well.

If you have 15 minutes a week, you have enough time to be a pen pal to a senior citizen. It can help them feel more valued and connected to the world AND you will learn from their years and years of life experience. Seniors are a wealth of knowledge and wisdom.

There are volunteer organizations that will facilitate finding you a senior pen pal or you can call your local senior centre and ask if there is someone there who might like a friend.
