The COVID-19 pandemic has meant many people, especially the elderly, have become increasingly isolated due to strict social distancing measures.
Fiona Harris, an educator from Calwell Early Childhood Centre, has launched a heart-warming project aimed at keeping young children and aged care residents connected when face-to-face visits are no longer an option.
The Art for Aged Care project is an opportunity for young children to express their love and care for elderly members of the community through art and notes of affection.
“Creating art and sending it with letters to aged care residents is the best way to keep connected. We can’t see them physically but we can let them know we still care” says Fiona.
