About a dozen undergraduate nursing students from New York University (NYU)’s Rory Meyers College of Nursing spent their spring break at A.G. Rhodes in mid-March.
The students volunteered in the A.G. Rhodes homes, and learned about long-term care. Students participated in a Virtual Dementia Tour which gave them insight into the challenges that people living with dementia face, they participated in music therapy and horticultural therapy sessions, and they helped with various activities.
“We were pleased to host this group of students and hope they continue learning about the long-term care industry,” said Deke Cateau, A.G. Rhodes Chief Operating Officer. “There are many rewarding career opportunities working with seniors, and these students saw first-hand the value and impact of their service.”
