I am a second year nursing student who greatly enjoys working with older adults. I have worked at Marina Bay Rehabilitation Center on a floor with all older adults who need help eating, bathing and fulfilling activities of daily living. I really loved taking care of those who needed as well as appreciated my help so much. In my current semester at Curry College, I am taking a course titled "Care of the Older Adult" where we learn about not only the physiological struggles of aging, but also the emotional ones as well. We work with the Simon Fireman Assisted Living Community and visit once a month to interact with the residents and they are the sweetest people I've ever encountered. Working with older adults is a great experience because while I am able to aid others, I can gain such new perspectives as well. I get to talk to someone who has seen so much more than me and really expand the diversity of my work experience as well as my ideas.
