CHD Living Presents: Adopt a Grandparent
Established in 1984, CHD Living (formerly Care Homes of Distinction), is a family owned group of care facilities located across the United Kingdom. It is a place where residents are encouraged to ''ive their life their way’', in facilities of the highest quality that promise superior, person-centred care. CHD Living is recognised today for its excellent standards of care and friendly services always provided within a warm and welcoming environment. Because of this, and due to the impact of COVID-19, the group has decided to present the opportunity to "Adopt a Grandparent."
They launched our ‘Adopt a Grandparent’ campaign to bring a sense of comfort to young people and the elderly who may not have grandparents/grandchildren of their own, with the aim of creating long-lasting intergenerational friendships.
What started as a local search, reaching out to those local to our home, soon became a global campaign, with kind and considerate individuals hailing from as far as Australia to help bring some happiness to those they care for. It’s even made the news, with The Independent, The Metro and The Standard (to name but a few) sharing our story.
All you need to do is fill in the form below and one of our team will be in touch to pair you with your new ‘Grandma’ or ‘Grandpa’.
After that, these are some of the ways in which you can help:
Having phone calls/video calls with your new friend
Sending cheerful pictures/stories/poems (post or email) for them to enjoy
Sharing stories from different generations
Sending letters/postcards to your new friend, much like a pen pal!
