OKC nursing home looking for pen pals for residents

The Brookwood Skilled Nursing Home has put out a request for pen pals for their residents.

“This is going to be a bond this is going to be a relationship when you have a pen pal,” said Kellie Prather, the activities director for Brookwood.

Prather said with the holidays coming up and the ongoing pandemic restricting visitation they needed to get creative to combat the three plagues, loneliness depression and boredom, so they came up with a good ole fashion idea of finding pen pals for the residents.
