BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — A nursing home in Bristol is making the holidays extra special for residents. The team at Countryside Manor of Bristol started a Christmas Pen Pals program, hoping to spread some cheer this year.

“We went around to the residents and explained to them the idea and asked them if they would be interested getting a Christmas Pen Pal,” said Rachael Waskiewicz, Dementia Program Coordinator at Countryside Manor of Bristol.
