ICI PN & OM students with the elderly clients
It’s a privilege and opportunity for us to witness them in their state. Their happiness and gratitude towards us and specially the Practical Nursing students who took care of them as OJT were apparent.
When the group arrived, they already have a Culmination program and dance presentation. There were 12 elderly and one of them sang his favorite song and the PN OJTs also abide them with a lot of elderly games. We saw their smiles and their appreciation as we offered them personal gift items on March 17, 2017.
We’re very proud of those people who didn’t send their grandmothers and grandfathers in such place. The elderly people are taken cared of but it could have been different living and cared by family members in a home setting. For some, there are might be serious reasons for their stay there. As a young citizen we still can help and serve them in any way. Since they already grown old and can’t do everything they wanted, assist them as much as possible and offer sincere help with their needs specially the love and affection that they longed for.
