The home, on College Road joined the Facebook group, which now has more than 32,000 members in the UK, to help with reminiscence activities within the home as well as keeping the residents in touch with the local and wider community.
The group enables members of the public to send postcards to the home as well as allowing the residents to send out their own postcards as they wish.
Paula Windmill, home manager at Linden House, said: “It is heart-warming that complete strangers take the time to find beautiful postcards, write and send them to us. We’re really proud to be part of the community in Epsom and any support for our project would be greatly appreciated. So, if you have a spare few minutes, please do send us a postcard. If you’d prefer to bring it in yourself, we’d be delighted to welcome you for a cup of tea!”
Lillian Thomas, 96, a resident at Linden House, said: “Everybody used to send postcards. Once upon a time, no holiday was complete without a search for stamps or a long wait in a post office. It’s been really enjoyable to read the lovely messages people have sent in; we’re all looking forward to hopefully receiving some more!”
Cards can be posted directly to Linden House care home, 9 College Road, Epsom, KT17 4HF.
Linden House is part of Wren Retirement Living and is currently managed by Healthcare Management Solutions.
