We are fostering growth and creating meaningful connections through our unique partnership with a local community college and high school. In this video, titled "Together We Grow," Shannon, a teacher of health occupations, shares the impact of this collaboration. Students have the opportunity to spend part of their school day at Arbor Terrace, where they engage in clinic practice and interact with residents in assisted living and memory care.
Through this hands-on experience, they not only enhance their communication skills but also apply their learned knowledge practically, making a difference in the lives of the residents. The staff at Arbor Terrace plays a pivotal role in teaching these students how to become home health aides and develop essential skills in caring for real people.
Many students go on to pursue nursing careers and even return to work at Arbor Terrace, creating a wonderful cycle of growth and giving back. This partnership is truly a testament to the incredible impact that can be achieved when communities come together to learn, grow, and support one another!
