As a result of Covid-19, we’ve had to cancel our typical Day of Caring. Also because of this global pandemic, individuals in nursing homes and care homes are not able to have friends and family visit them at this time. Let’s show these residents that they’re not alone and that we’re thinking of them. We’re encouraging you and your family, especially children, to write letters or cards. Let the residents know that you care, tell them a joke or funny story, or draw pictures. If you want, you can specify if it’s for a “Man” or “Woman”. Also, large print would be appreciated by many. The staff at these homes will distribute these letters, cards, and pictures to their residents. If you mail these within Estevan, no postage is needed as long as you put “Days of Caring” above the name and address of the seniors home you’re sending it to. Thanks Canada Post for helping our community through this!
Here are the addresses of the four senior homes we’ve contacted:
"Days of Caring" Estevan Regional Nursing Home 1921 Wellock Road Estevan, SK S4A 2B5 (60 residents)
"Days of Caring" St. Joseph’s Long Term Care 1176 Nicholson Road Estevan, SK S4A 0H3 (38 residents)

"Days of Caring" Hilllview Manor 1401 1st St. Estevan, SK S4A 2W7 (38 residents)
Be sure to post pics writing, drawing or mailing your letters to our social media pages - facebook, instagram and twitter. You can use the hashtags #DaysofCaring and #LocalLove.
