"We've had lots of cards and letters to cheer up the residents and to let them know that people out there are thinking of them.

"It's making them feel happy and brightening up their day."

He added: "They're missing their loved ones. They've been talking to them on the telephone and on video chat. We've got the letters and pictures up on the wall so they can look at them daily."
