I run a Senior Center and would like to find some pen pals for my clients to write too. We are a group of men and women ages 60-95. We have a wide variety of interests and experiences. 
Thank you.

Hi there, I'd love to be a pen pal with one of your clients! I'm pretty friendly, from Canada, and am a mother to two young children. [smile]

Hi TSHindes,

I work in a residential care home for the elderly in the UK. The residents I care for have tasked me with looking for pen pals from across the seas, we are looking for all ages but a couple have shown an interest in looking for pen pals of a similar age to themselves (ranging from 65-99). Is this something your clients may be interested in? We are looking for either groups or as individuals.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Carol

I have written to you folks 4 times and I still see the same ad for pen pals and no reply to my reply. how in the world do you become a pen pal if no one replies to the replies?? how does it work, this site is so confusing and I happen to know a bit about how to navigate a computer, I can just imagine how lost a senior citizen would be. Please take a minute and reply to the folks that are actually answering your ads. Kind regards Janet

Hi, I am very interested in corresponding with a senior citizen in a nursing home. My father was in one until he pasted away last March for about 4 months. I didn't get to spend as much time visiting him as I would have loved too, I did make it back home to NC for 3 weeks over the Christmas holidays and was able to send time with him each day until I had to return home to MN. I know how lonely the days can be there. Thank you.

Thank you. 


I am a senior that would like to correspond with you.  I was born in New Jersey and lived in Brooklyn.  I had a career in special education that was great and would love to tell you how I helped thousands of children.  Looking forward to chatting with you.  Elaine

To TSHindes:

Are you still looking for pen pals for your clients? I'm teaching a class on Missions and Service Projects at Vacation Bible School at my church in a couple weeks. I would like to get some of the kids involved with being pen pals. Please let me know as soon as you can. Thanks!
