How It Makes A Difference

Many homebound older adults feel lonely in their daily lives. Because they don't get around as much as they used to, they often miss the daily human interactions they used to have and are grateful for every phone call, visit, letter, or email they receive. A homemade card from a caring person can really brighten a older adult's day. It makes them feel loved and remembered.
