Since March 11, visits are prohibited in nursing homes. Faced with the concern of families concerned about the isolation suffered by their loved ones, Cap Retraite calls for solidarity.
Since March 11, with a few rare exceptions, all visits are prohibited in nursing homes. This measure, necessary to protect our most fragile elders from the coronavirus, however, plunges families into disarray.
"He thinks I've abandoned him", "She's going to be depressed for sure", "I can't even call him, he's in no condition to call", "It's very hard to see so close and yet inaccessible”… Here are some examples of phrases that Cap Retraite advisers hear every day in the mouths of families.
Faced with the growing concern of families regarding the forced isolation experienced by our seniors, Cap Retraite calls for solidarity. Since schools are closed, many parents will have to stay home to look after their child. Therefore, why not take the opportunity to combine business with pleasure? Propose an artistic activity to your child, and offer his works of art to the residents of the EHPAD nearest to you!
Drawings, paintings, stickers, origami, collages, postcards, herbariums, pasta necklaces... Everything is allowed as soon as it fits in the mailbox!
The creativity of our adorable darlings has no limit, so let's use it! All together, let's create to tell our elders that we haven't forgotten them, and brighten up their daily lives that have become lonely.
There are 7,000 nursing homes in France. We are 65 million French people.
If so, share your works on social networks with #Un DessinUnSourire. Let's immortalize the solidarity of our nation for its elders!
