The mailbox at the Grand Rehabilitation and Nursing of Guilderland has "exploded" with letters arriving daily, much to the delight of the senior residents who live there.

Recently, activity directors featured photos of 11 residents and behind them on a dry-erase board was information about each of them. It listed their name as well as their hobbies, interests and other character traits that might make them the perfect pen pal for you to start a friendship with. Scroll through the gallery and see if one of these delightful residents feels like a fit— send em' a letter! They'll be so happy you did.
