Singleton Mercy Aged Care is staying in touch

Singleton Mercy Aged Care


When the staff at Mercy Aged Care realised that residents would not be able to have visitors for a while, they jumped into action!  A letter campaign was quickly shared on Facebook with a great response from people far and wide.


The staff have asked the global community to send a letter or a postcard to the residents of the Singleton Mercy Aged Care to brighten their day.  They are asking people to let them know where they are, a little bit about their lives and where they live.


The responses have been truly uplifting.  Letters and emails have been coming in at a steady rate.  So much so, that the residents and staff of the Aged Care go live each afternoon on Facebook to share some of the letters.  To follow them on Facebook, visit


In addition to the letter writing campaign, they have also set up a ‘Mercy Singleton Virtual Visiting’ roster. Friends and relatives can book a time when they can visit via Facetime, WhatsApp or Messenger.  This is just another way to ensure that all the residents stay in touch during this time of social distancing.
