Twice during the academic year, each semester, we are very fortunate to have young nursing students from Lourdes University in Sylvania, Ohio come to our Home to learn about caring for the elderly. Who better to learn from than the Little Sisters of the Poor!
Our own Mother Cecilia and Sr. Moira discussed with the students what caring for the elderly means here at our Home. The students asked good questions and learned a lot in these discussions. These students will be working and learning from us for the next few weeks as they complete a practicum portion of their formal education in becoming licensed nurses.
We greatly appreciate this working relationship with Lourdes University and welcome having these young people in our Home. They brighten the lives of our Residents with their smiles and helping hands.
