Adopt a Grandparent

About Adopt a Grandparent

Residents living at Wartburg are not able to receive physical visits from loved ones, due to present restrictions on visitation. Like anyone else, many of them yearn for external communication as an opportunity to interact with others, combat loneliness, and share life experiences. The ‘Adopt a Grandparent’ program brings this idea to fruition by pairing caring members of the community with Wartburg residents.

What’s Involved?

All you need to do is fill in the form below and one of our team members 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
