An initiative to help elderly residents isolating due to coronavirus maintain contact has been launched by an Exmouth care provider.
Bluebird Care Exmouth wants people to write letters of encouragement for its customers to help the more vulnerable people feel a little less alone.
The idea is the brainchild of manager Frankie Rowe after her own grandmother, aged 88, decided to self-isolate and she decided to write to a card to her.
Mrs Rowe received a call from her grandmother telling her how it brightened up her day.
She said: “Right now, it is more important than ever to help each other, we must look after the mental well-being of older people especially.
