Crafting Relationships, Transcending Generations
Hey, You Got Mail is going beyond cards! We are partnering with nursing homes for our brand new initiative: Scrapbook Edition!
This is a venue for us to kickstart deeper and more meaningful relationships with seniors who are facing social isolation especially in such unprecedented times.
We have worked hard to design our own Scrapbook which comes in a customizable format. We produced a wide variety of Activity Sheets such as Games, Quizzes and Musical activities. They serve as a prompt for the volunteer and the elderly to carry out the activity and bond.
To provide an interactive platform for the creation of meaningful, long-term relationships between elderly and youths.
To alleviate the issue of social isolation among the elderly in Singapore by creating an outlet of communication and interaction
what do I do?
As a volunteer in this project, you will be attached to a senior in one of our partner nursing homes/activity care centres. Across 4 Sessions, you and your senior will co-share one scrapbook. During each session, both of you will complete activity sheets and decorate the scrapbook to personalise and make meaningful connections with the seniors. At the end of the 4 sessions, the seniors will get to keep the completed scrapbook and hold on to those precious memories forever! We will highly encourage you to go for more sessions upon your request!
Cycle 1 will begin in March and will contain a minimum requirement of 4 sessions. Sessions will be held throughout the week so feel free to inform us of your preferred days in our Sign Up Form. Volunteers will have to come down for 4 face-to-face sessions at our partnered nursing homes which last an hour long.
