Dear Manitou Families,

The residents at Baycrest need our support! Their daily lives have changed with more isolated time and restrictions on visitors. A group of our 1st year staff are involved in a yearlong initiative where they have committed to an ongoing relationship with a Baycrest resident. Their connections have grown over the past months and we are so proud that they have dedicated their time to helping seniors in isolation. Now you also have the opportunity to make a difference in the life of a Baycrest long term care resident living at the Apotex, Jewish Home for the Aged. We are asking our families to write 2 Manitou postcards, one for Passover and one for Easter, that will be handed out to residents who celebrate these respective holidays. This meaningful gesture will help to keep the residents feeling engaged and connected. Please feel free to get creative by making it personal with a note, drawing, or including a quote using the template below. By writing a few kind words and signing your first name at the bottom, you will brighten the day of a senior. Below is a link to the 2 postcard templates:


Please email back the completed postcards to Jen at by March 5th. We greatly appreciate the involvement of our Manitou Family in this project and know this will help each senior who receives your card. 

Thank you, 

Jeff, Mark, Jen, Alec and Melissa
