Assisted Living Locators Partners with Love for the Elderly to Encourage People to Write “Letters of Love” to Uplift Seniors During COVID-19

April 22, 2020

Assisted Living Locators, a leading nationwide senior placement and referral service, is partnering with Love For The Elderly, a non-profit organization that mails handwritten letters to seniors, to encourage people to write “Letters of Love” to uplift seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CDCWorld Health Organization, as well as the Surgeon General have indicated that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread through the mail.

“With COVID-19 reaching pandemic levels and our seniors being one of the most vulnerable to the disease, many states have ordered lockdowns or issued shelter-in-place guidelines,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators CEO RN. “Social distancing has led older adults living in long term care facilities to be isolated from their loved ones. It’s extremely important to ensure residents are positively engaged and supported during COVID-19. We’re asking for kind, handwritten letters to mail to bring comfort to seniors. Just take 5 minutes and write a letter of love to a stranger.”

“During this scary, uncertain time, we’re looking for handwritten love in the form of letters and for senior facilities to receive them,” explained Jacob Cramer, Founder and Executive Director of Love For The Elderly. “Help us fight loneliness with love for our seniors!”

“Letters of Love” can be mailed to:

Love For The Elderly
P. O. Box 24248
Cleveland, OH
44124, USA
