Plantation Pointe Retirement Community in Columbus announces that The Arrington assisted-living community is accepting “Feel Great Again” letters of encouragement for its assisted living residents and healthcare heroes. The Arrington asks the community to support its isolated elders to fight depression and loneliness with a blind letter-writing campaign.
“The CDC, World Health Organization and surgeon general have determined that there’s currently no evidence that COVID-19 is being spread by the mail,” said Ken Phillips, administrator of The Arrington. “However, to ensure resident safety, we added another layer of safety by requiring that all correspondences be opened, read and shielded from residents by Arrington healthcare heroes and staff. Physical isolation is essential for public health during a pandemic, especially for our elders. But they also deserve to feel unforgotten.”
To participate, The Arrington seeks handwritten personal correspondences that tell its residences and healthcare heroes about yourself, maybe tell a joke or a riddle and let them know how much they are loved. Write in a manner that’s similar to a conversation with a newfound friend or acquaintance.
Established in 1997, Plantation Pointe Retirement Community provides a broad range of healthcare services and specialized care options for assisted living, recuperation, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, occupational, physical and speech pathology therapy and Alzheimer’s/Dementia.

Plantation Pointe Retirement Community is locally owned and operated by the Phillips Family Columbus.
