BEING in hospital is hard enough at the best of times, but even worse when you can't have any visitors.
The Milton Ulladulla United Hospital Auxiliary wants to make life better for people in the Milton Ulladulla Hospital and asks community members to start writing letters to the patients.
The patients, due to COVID-19, again cannot receive visitors.
Yvonne, the Milton Ulladulla Hosptial's diversional therapist, last year arranged for Year 5 students to write letters to patients.
The patients loved the letters and the letters really lifted the patients' spirits.
With current 'no visitor' rules, Yvonne thought patients would like to receive letters from the general community and asked the auxiliary to spread the word on Facebook.
"We thought the letters could be light reading - poems, jokes (clean, of course!), interesting stories, what you did on holidays and interests you may have would be perfect for the letters," an auxiliary spokesperson said.
"If I was writing a letter, which I will do, I would probably write about our recent visit to Mogo Zoo or one of our other travels and add photos."
The letters should be Dear Patient and addressed to MUH Patient, C/- Milton Ulladulla Hospital Auxiliary, P O Box 490, Ulladulla 2539.
