Email Letters to Nursing Home Residents

CLACS has created a new service opportunity for Ferris students: writing letters to nursing home residents, who are more prone to loneliness than usual now that they can’t have visitors.

You can use this template and email your letter to CLACS will forward your letters through April 30 and possibly after that date as well.


My name is ____________. I am currently a student at Big Rapid’s famous Ferris State University. I am studying Marketing while concentrating in Risk Management & Insurance. I am hoping to one day become an Insurance sales women!

How are you staying busy during this quarenteen? I have been doing a lot of hiking, playing cards with my roommates, exercising, and cooking. My favorite dish that I have cooked so far is Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers. Yum!

What are you doing to stay positive during this? I have been doing a lot of reading and journaling. I find that reading distracts me from reality and allows me to imagine a peaceful world. I also have been trying to do some yoga to clear my mind. I would love to hear what you are doing! We could all use some tips and tricks.

It has been a joy writing to you. I hope I was able to put a smile on your face!

I hope you are staying safe and healthy!
