Although the COVID-19 pandemic has left some feeling isolated, it has brought one memory care resident and her daughter closer together.
When the world shut down in the height of COVID-19, student Sydney Clements turned to what she knew best: community service. Clements is a 17-year-old junior at Franklin Community High School in Franklin, IN. As her classes turned online, she turned to pen and paper and reached out to Morning Pointe of Franklin (IN) about being a pen pal. Immediately, a letter writing campaign began. “Eleven names were given and she has been faithful about drawing them a picture and handwriting them a letter once a week,” explains Mary Beth Piland, life enrichment director at Morning Pointe of Franklin. “The residents in turn have written her as well.”
